Here I am at the Cherry Street Cafe on 1st and Clay with Byron and soon to be Alexis to talk design and dev of the actual site. There is also a girl sitting by herself reading an enormous blue book. Odds I talk to her are 20:1 (note that I don’t know what that means but sounds like the odds are against it). I’m honestly more like a patriarch for this meeting since we’ve picked out a layout and a lot of the questions are for Alexis and developing beep boop boop beep questions.
Is this how revolutions start? I hope so, because I feel cool as shit sitting with talented dudes talking their trade. We are all also wearing dark colors…and the lighting in this place has taken a hit from the economy.
First big question: Vimeo or YouTube???
Vimeo is independent and quality. YouTube is more accessible and familiar.
This is a tough one and both have their pros and cons, but for this show my instincts said Vimeo. That being said, a lot of signs point to YouTube. Both is an option. I proposed the whole episodes on vimeo and the independent clips hosted on youtube. That makes the clips a little more shareable, but maintains the quality of the vimeo player. Fuck. In youtube you can link within to other videos, count subscribers, and — you know what? You can HD embed youtube videos now. I just realized that.
Executive decision = YouTube!
