IView @ Microsoft: DAM

IView, a Digital Asset Management company is recently acquired by Microsoft. Channel 9 has an interesting video of the team talking about their product and company. I agree with the developer comment on the interview that cracking the RAW proprietary format is a challenge, it is indeed a great challenge. The team has a Windows platform developer so I would speculate the integration of their product into core Windows obviously.

GoogTube buzz

Today the blogsphere is screaming about the Google - YouTube deal. Thanks to the deal new billionaries are born. It would be interesting to see if Google would syndicate the content of the Google Videos and YouTube or if they would integrate at all?

Google also signed a deal with Warner Music and Sony to distribute their content to the world.

Now, the question is whats next?

The invite from Microsoft for beta testing soapbox finally arrived! The interface and organization of video is very user intutive. I really like the Categories feature.
