Harvey Birdman and the Future of Free Media Hosting

Reading this Mark Glaser OJR article on the upcoming battle for video hosting reminded me to put up a video of that "Harvey Birdman" commercial I mentioned earlier. Since this blog is largely an experiment in what stuff can be done online for free (and that I'm too busy to move to my own setup), I just uploaded it to the OurMedia site which actually is using the Internet Archive for media hosting. When it's available, it should be online here. They'll need to minimize this downtime if they want people to use the service, though.

UPDATE 20:30: It's still not up yet. I am not impressed. I'm about to start looking for non-free hosting of this great clip.
