Video is the new text message.


Thinking out loud here, but if we present the idea of expensive, well appointed professional video labs to serve the Penn State community interested in the current media revolution, isn't it like giving them linotype machines when they want to blog? The obvious everyman solution is YouTubeMixer. They say:

If you've ever uploaded from your cell phone, wished for an easy way to add titles and transitions, or just wanted to remix your own videos, Remixer is a great place to play. It lets you assemble your new video in an easy drag-and-drop timeline, and then publish it right back to YouTube. Your original videos will stay exactly the same.

YouTube also warehouses user-centric help at the video toolbox with titles like "Making and Optimizing Your Videos", "11 Steps to Add Some Spice", "Lighting for the Internet" and "Editing 101: Class is in Session". But there are tons of online free sites...

Adobe is powering a number of free, online video editing/sharing apps:

If you've been wondering what to do with the video you shoot with your snazzy new camera (or your phone), Jumpcut is the perfect place for you to be creative. If video isn't your thing just yet and you just want to make cool slideshows with your pictures, Jumpcut is still the best place. Finally, a free online location where you can use all your media, create great looking movies and publish to anyone you choose. There's nothing else like it.

Personal video is about more than just home movies; it's about capturing life -- in motion and on the fly. As we all know, life doesn't always happen in perfect, 30-second clips. So how do you dig through all your videos to get to the moments you care about most? We don't think you should have to learn complicated editing software to share the best parts of your videos online. That's why we've developed smart, simple ways to help you make the most of what you've shot.

The media is ubiquitous because anyone can create it, then share it with everyone or anyone. Are we a bit behind the curve?
