Flickr Video beta due in April  —  In early February, in the midst of Microsoft's surprise bid to acquire Yahoo, I wrote about Yahoo's Flickr Video coming soon.  It's been a long time coming.  I first asked Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake about a Flickr video service in December 2005.

Video Coming To Flickr Soon.  Really.  —  In mid 2005 I profiled YouTube for the first time.  As Steve Rubel noted, the best way to describe it was “like Flickr, but for videos.”  At the time few people saw the massive upside for YouTube, which was built completely on freely available Flash technology from Adobe.
Mathew / mathewingram.com/work:
One question on Flickr Video: Why?  —  So Mike Arrington says in a post over at TechCrunch that Flickr is going to be adding video soon — really.  This rumour has been around for awhile, as Mike himself acknowledges, and in fact Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield has been talking about adding video for at least a year.

Why Is It So Hard To Say “I'm Sorry,” Sarah?  —  I've been thinking recently about how the ability to go “live” may affect many careers.  Using the Sarah Lacy/Mark Zuckerberg keynote as our example, I want to share some thoughts with you.  Whether you are a blogger or an entrepreneur …

Goodbye old friend!  Russell Shaw, R.I.P.  —  In the early days of blogging there were just a few of us who blogged about VoIP and other such telecom topics.  Russell Shaw was one of them, and he was very good at it.  A good natured and knowledgeable fellow, Shaw had a rolodex that was thicker than most reporters.
