Tech Friday: Vidly.com & “Mmm, mmm, mmm” indoctrination

Posted By on September 25, 2009

Vidly logoSince I’m becoming more and more anti-YouTube (partially my own doing), I’ve been tinkering with a couple other online video sharing sites. Vidly.com (or the shortened Vid.ly) is easy to use and has both a simple Twitter interface for phones, and an easy uploader tool while using the computer. Editing and organizing (tags, notes, etc) could be improved, but its by far the easiest site to share video up to 20 minutes with Twitter users; it doesn’t get much faster. If you’re looking for a video sharing option for Twitter, or a easy way to embed a clip on a blog, give Vidly.com a try.

My “test” video is a Twitter shared repost of the “Mmm, mmm, mmm” indoctrination clip which is in the news today. According to Michelle Malkin, the video that has an elementary school in New Jersey singing praises about our President, was originally posted in June and taken down.  Showing respect for President Obama by not sayingYou lie” is one thing — but teaching kids in school to sing this is indoctrination.
