"...breakthroughs in information retrieval would come when researchers gained a deeper understanding of how humans process information and then endowed machines with analogous capabilities." —Ben-Ami Lipetz

So you know how Flickr has tags, right? It lets visual images have searchable text describing what it is, like IKEA or meatballs. It's like letting pictures talk in word-language. Or letting us speak in pictures, just like Peter Gabriel does. Anyway, it's crazy cool. And this networked intermedia symbiosis party is spreading to video. The party's just gettin' started.

Witness what a couple of my vlog-buds are up to:

Michael Verdi is shaking things up in the land of mefeedia tags. Check out the growing little video conversation surrounding vlog anarchy. Another popular tag is The Gates.

Jakob Lodwick, who writes an ever-expanding epiphany on tagwebs, has taken his vimeo project from hobby to beta. Vimeo goes beyond showing you videos with certain tags. It assembles them into "automatic movies" - for example, automatic movies about a concept: funny or a place: 349 broadway where Jakob and the boys live. This isn't available for the public to play with just yet, but from what I've seen this could be huge. And huge fun.

Plug in, zoom on and freak out man.

Hey Chuck, post a link to your response video (WTF is that?) so I can tag it in Mefeedia. I think I'm ready for better blogging software!

Oh... that was just a joke. :-D
It's some weird commercial, for some disgusting food product, in a funny language, with funny ladies and chickens.

Do I need to post it on my vlog?

You'd have to give it it's own post - because of that 1 enclosure per whatever thing they keep talking about. Or I could post it. It just made me laugh because it was so gross and anarchyish in that context.
