He did, and Youtube Instant was born. Apparently the vice-president of Youtube offered him a job over Twitter. Look for it in Cnet. I read it, but I can't look for it at the moment.

    or you know... it could also be that... Youtube is owned by google and that they implemented it after they did for their search engine.

    That is indeed very disturbing.
    Reminds me of a restaurant in new york that'll deep fry almost anything you bring (except skittles; they get lost in the deep fryer).

    In other news, Wise Man's Fear, second in the book series I draw my name from, comes out tomorrow. If I seem EXCITED, it is because I've only been waiting, oh, 4 years to read it. Not that long compared to some authors, but for me it's 1/4 of my life.

    And apparently atheists in the UK are trying to off the burgeoning jedi population

    Good for the kid for defending himself, although he probably needs to learn how to take it a bit easy.
