Tyler McMullen - Load Balancing is Impossible - YouTube
Interesting video about how load balancing is difficult because you get a poisson distribution of load and it's hard to tell which server to send it to. "Pick 2 servers at random and send it to the one we think has least load" is one of the best algorithms.

Dear Mozilla, Please Don't Kill HTML5 Video! | Brian Crescimanno
A well-argued position in favor of Mozilla supporting the h264 format. But I fear it may miss the point that they're legally bound NOT to unless they pay a large sum of money. Perhaps instead of refusing to support it they should be setting up a separate contributions fund and when that's full they'll support it.

HTML5 video and H.264 – what history tells us and why we’re standing with the web · Christopher Blizzard
YouTube is now using HTML5 but with a proprietary format for the video. Firefox won't display it because it's a proprietary format. Learn from history (like GIF): use an open format!

A review of video (and audio) encoding formats that is quite brief and simple but gives a great introduction for people who know absolutely nothing about the subject before starting. Like me.

Dr. Horrible
An online video produced (and partly written) by Joss Whedon. It's really, really good. It has humor, silly sci-fi heros, and it's a musical. Reminds me of the movie "Mystery Men". This is what I've always thought online video could be... lower production values than television, but far more creativity.

Owning the Clouds - Update (how now, brownpau?)
Guy posts video to Google video as public domain. Others make cool parodies from it. Eventually, one of these (with copyright) causes his to be flagged as a copyright violation and taken down. He raises the issue and it's resolved.

Molecular Visualizations of DNA
A visualization of the amazing nanomachines involved in DNA replication and transcription. I always thought of these molecular devices as "clunky", imagining this was the case because they were formed by random evolution. This video taught me otherwise.
