One hour of video is uploaded to Youtube every second. That’s kinda hard to comprehend, so some smartypants over there put together a slick website to illustrate just how big that number really is. And the whole site is done with CSS and HTML animations and svg elements – no Flash! If anyone can track down who the illustrators are, I’d love to know. Really well done.
On July 24, 2010, a ton of people around the world got together to document their day, taking part in an ambitious visual experiment. Following that day, over 80,000 clips were edited down to make what looks to be an amazing documentary, spearheaded by wonder-team Kevin MacDonald and Ridley Scott. The best thing about this, you can watch the premiere live from sundance film festival 2011, on youtube, on January 27. Right here. I love the internet. Happy Monday!
