Wired: Vote for the Sexiest Geeks of 2007


So, Researcher nominated me to the gender-unbiased third annual Wired News Sexiest Geeks contest – and since my exbf (who is a proper true wizard all hail his mighty strong kung fu übergeek) just emailed me with a laugh saying “guess who I’m voting for!”, I thought, what the hell – I might as well tell you all that I’m on that list.

 Vote for the Sexiest Geeks of 2007 – my red mop of curly hair doesn’t show up until page three and it’s not the best of pictures, but wehey, I’ve got seventeen votes (I’m guessing that my mom must have found the list). Won’t you humor me with one more? I’ll let you look at my brass blowtorch if you do. And I might even let you touch my scooter. But only if you wash your hands first and wear gloves.

Vimeo the HD alternative to Youtube

Sometimes you need to post a video online and the number of views, favorites and links doesn’t matter. What matters is quality. Youtube’s quality is a low 200kps and your video, let’s say your show reel or beautifully crafted TVC, looks awful in Youtube’s 320×240 blurry vision.

There is an alternative which offers all the community sharing aspects of Youtube but with increased quality. Not only that it supports HD. Upload a 1280×720 clip and Vimeo will auto create a small version (400×300) and allow viewers to watch the full HD footage. Here’s Vimeos HD FAQ which explains more.

Users have the option of turning off HD at any time and load the smaller clip so bandwidth is not an issue.
