With Google Video, it used to possible to link within a video (so that it would start in the middle instead of at the beginning Is that possible with YouTube?
Not at the moment. - Kenny Stoltz
A start I guess.. - Photonic

Interesting how Google Video *loses* this features while YouTube gains it. - Philipp Lenssen
It's a good start, maybe a feature where you can say how long you want the length of the clip say #t=1m1s-1m48s, for example; and it would be good to go to another point like backwards of forwards, maybe #t=1m1s-1m48,#t55s#t2m36s. That would be neat too...have you tried it yet?. - Jason

RedState: The Root Causes of the Financial Crisis
"Let’s say that you’re a hedge fund with a billion dollars in capital. Let’s say you levered up 30-to-1 (which is not unrealistic). Conceivably you could construct a $30 billion portfolio of MBS off the $1 billion in capital. Your raw annual investment return (without counting a handful of external costs like insurance) would theoretically be 30 times 75 basis points. WOW! That’s far, far, far above the “normal” risk-adjusted investment yield of 8 to 10 percent that institutional investors have targeted as a benchmark for decades. Now do you see where the whole problem came from? Ok, what happened next?" - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
It works great as long as everything keeps going up. Unfortunately the whole system became highly leveraged on house prices. I predict massive inflation -- it seems like the easiest way out of the mess. - Paul Buchheit
Where are hedge funds getting the money to buy these MBS? Investment banks? Were normal commerical banks buying MBS on borrowed funds as well? - Michael
Pretty much explains the 'big problem'. The lending institutions had no idea now much bad paper they were holding. ... That just blew me away totally (and I guess, ultimately blew a lot of them away too). - Charlie Anzman
I dunno. If this is correct, then shouldn't somebody, somewhere, be buying up MBS at cheap rates, knowing that they probably won't actually default all that much? Are people afraid that default rates will continue to rise, or is this some sort of feedback-based financial meltdown independent of the actual underlying risk? - ⓞnor
This sounds like the start of the Great Depression. Everybody was leveraged to the hilt, and then the margin call came and nobody had the money to pay up. - Gabe
It's nice to try and simplify things down but this explanation seems overly simplistic to me. No mention of the sources of the housing bubble, CDOs and CMOs, credit default swaps, and mark to model versus mark to market. Perceived risk is a huge part of this story, and while it is mentioned in the article, the tone of the article makes it seem as if margin by itself is the evil (witness the foreign currency market.) - Dave Bacon
So far it does sound like a Great Depression 2.0. Can't read the article though, I'm getting 500 - Internal Server Error -- - eugenio

Flag Focus
When a digital camera is placed close to a computer screen we can discover a new disharmony. The intersection of the limits of the devices - the camera's zoom and the screen's resolution - creates blurry images. Having world flags on the screen to which the camera moves too close reminds me the problem of having physically distinct but politically blurry borders between nations. Burak Arikan - Photonic

OK, unless Paul put that menu on the table to throw people off the scent, I think I won. For my prize I want the Reshare bug I reported Aug 12 on the friendfeed google group moved to the front of the queue. It bit me again last night resharing from my home feed to the DSLR room. - Bruce Lewis
Good work Bruce. Have you been there? Lavanda has some of the best food around, though unfortunate there's something a bit off about the atmosphere -- I think the lighting is too harsh. This prosciutto, peaches, figs, and basil salad was very good. Also, I just fixed your reshare bug :) - Paul Buchheit
once a pirate always a pirate eh Paul? :) - Zee.
Paul, sorry to interrupt your breakfast, but please could you check out the concerns I have mentioned within the Beta room, (my bacon is missing etc.):(many thanks. - Photonic
Photonic, can you give a few examples? To me, it looks the same. - Paul Buchheit
The same as what? I had at least two pages of previous content, its difficult to supply examples without breaking the context flow and expression, maybe you will see on the old FF version..?? - Photonic
Photonic, are they all present on ? - Paul Buchheit
Ym i think your at a picnic or a resturant or your eating dinner - Victor Lee Squire from twhirl

Photonic, it should start working right soon. - Paul Buchheit
Paul, I've never been to Palo Alto that I can remember; maybe as a kid. The last time I was in California was 8 years ago for an O'Reilly conference in Monterey. But look me up next time you're in Massachusetts. :-) - Bruce Lewis

Fred Wilson on the 'Now Web' and monetizing Twitter (Tech Confidential - Behind The Money Blog) -
"There used to be this knock on certain companies that they were creating a feature, not a business. But that's what people said about Google, because their context was Yahoo!, where search was one piece of a portal, but what we've seen happen over the last 10 years is the de-portalization of the Internet. Many features have become businesses, like was before it was sold to Yahoo!." - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Dozens :). More seriously, the number of users isn't that important -- what matters more is how many people _will_ use these services in the future. - Paul Buchheit
Instead of 'Now Web', how about 'Instanet' and for mobile 'Outherenet or Outtherenet'..FFTFTD.. - Photonic

Diamond and Kashyap on the Recent Financial Upheavals - Freakonomics - Opinion - New York Times Blog -
"What they told me was so interesting and insightful that I begged them to write their explanations down for a broader audience. They were kind enough to take the time to do so. In what follows, they discuss what has happened in the financial sector in the last few days, why it happened, and what it means for everyday people." - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

Palin’s suggested oil export ban ‘not exactly easy to understand.’ -
"“Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and where it’s not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that need that oil first,” Palin said. “So, I believe that what Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding the bag without the energy source that is produced here, pumped here. It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first.”" - Ivan Pope from Bookmarklet

"The 3-month U.S. Treasury bill yield "last traded at 0.02 percent as an actual trade and may have traded negative earlier today," said Sean Murphy, Treasuries trader at RBC Capital Markets in New York, shortly after 12:30 p.m. EDT (1630 GMT). The last time the 3-month U.S. T-bill yield was at or below zero was in January 1940" - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

I have touched on that elsewhere, but when you start to allow ads into the actual flow, the user experience will added an additional frequency which could emerge as a high pitched noise, or another way to look at it, how the current water-flow of a river starts to act what beavers start getting their paws on some wood.
