A few weeks back I downloaded Viddy and played with it a bit. At the time, I tweeted that I thought it was cool with a couple of caveats and that I would follow up with more details. Well, after playing with it a couple of more days, the cons started to outweigh the pros pretty quickly. Given the amount of hype Viddy received and continues to get, I didn’t want to hate on it for a few (what seemed to be) minor bugs so I decided to hold off on writing anything further until a software update or two came out. During the last few weeks though, my opinion of Viddy went from “It’s pretty cool,” to “It kinda sucks.”
If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, check out this slideshow for an explanation of what Viddy is and how it works:
Welcome (back) to Insomniac Non Sequitur! It’s been a couple of years since I’ve updated this thing. I’m in the process of migrating the posts from the old server to this one. The blog was originally running on Serendipity (still is somewhere out there), and there didn’t seem to be an easy way to export the posts, comments, tags, categories, etc. to WordPress easily. So I’m going to be cutting and pasting the next few days. There may be some changes to layout and features over the next few days also. Be sure to check the archives and if there’s anything wrong (broken links, missing media and the like), let me know in the comments section.
