A little about me...
Mainly interested in global daily life (What's currently happening in our world?, Public space, Tourism, Youth Culture, Senior culture, Indigenous people) and arts (D r e a m t r i p 2.0, Pop classics, Engagement, Trashz, beyond Trashz, Live arts, Nordic arts, Mediterranean art). Created the Videosift Art Academy and the VideoSift Language Academy to stimulate our inherent creative impulse. Also curious what will be discovered at CERN's Large Hadron Collider and what technological change will bring about (the Machine). Aiming at correct and comprehensive labelling of posts (i.e. credits, when and where produced, important keywords that are not already included in a channel name (tag research)) and addition of further information or links in order to create a context around the video. I also think Videosift needs these channels (00s, architecture/design, europe, fan (mashup), fashion, holidays, homme (man), ict, latin(o), middleeast, poetry/spoken word, pranks, psa (public service announcement), psychology, registrations, robots, seniors, tragedy (drama), violence) and some categorization of the existing channels. Hopes nearly all siftworthy online videos (some addresses) will end up on Videosift. Hopes Videosift will become less geographically biased and look more like this divided by its video production (UNESCO, IMDB), resulting in this figure. Positively discriminating places where less video is produced in order to stimulate their video culture. Videosift is not (just) America's Funniest Home Videos (short look at geographical distribution of posts on Videosift). Interested in vintage clips and is therefore positively discriminating clips from the 1970s and older. Wary of trusting posts with expressions like "the most awesome" as meta data. Seems to have a general preference for sifted posts that receive +- 20 votes and some discarded/personally queued posts. Can't keep up with the current sift pace.
