THE INTERDIMENSIONAL CROSSRIP
I'd love to say that I was way ahead of my time, so... I'm going to say that I was way ahead of my time when I thought I could pull off a regular online "news video show" back in 2000. Mind you, this was pre-YouTube, pre-hi-speed broadband, and pre-non DV camera digital video. So we finished one episode (and a teaser) that ended up being a whopping 12mb - which, at dial-up speeds, meant that viewers had to set up the download, go to sleep, and wake up in the morning to view the finished product. The video was shot on a then state of the art Sony MiniDV camera (my work at a Sony Electronics store came in handy on that front), edited on one of Apple's original iMac DVs, and compressed using... wait for it... the brand new 4.0 version of QuickTime. Cutting edge stuff.
Response wasn't the greatest, mainly because I think nobody had the patience (or desire) to spend all of their valuable online hours downloading a video of my ugly mug overnight when there were many other more worthy things to download. You know, like the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace trailer or something.
Anyway, thanks to the miracle of modern science, you can now watch the original (and only) April 2000 Interdimensional Crossrip at the touch of a button. I'm not sure why you'd want to but hey, at least you don't have to let it download overnight any more...
