Plus, contrary to what the pseudo-ideology and historically false 
claims of "Web 2.0" (paradigm shift, user is in power, heavily 
interactive...) says:
--> this is a VIDEO (sometimes not even readable, because in 
proprietary format, see Paul's posting) and it shows mostly TEXT 
written and edited by one user (Wesch, I presume) on screens. Brave 
new world *shiver* ;-)
Wondering whether the simplicity of the format may just be the 
crucial point in why this is so attractive to the 'small world' of 
web2.0.
