The samples are mostly uninspired, but the concept has a lot of potential.

This idea seems to resurface every six months, and every time it does, the example sites are always filled with spam and useless crap within a day or two.

Who needs this ability to see what some anonymous dweeb thinks of a site?

The subtitle thing is useful, they really kill video compression quality and are better as overlays. It would be useful for stuff like the next "bus uncle" situation. The thing is though google video already supports subtitles so I would expect them to show up in youtube eventually.

I had this idea way back in high school. It was called a yearbook.

Wow. Talk about distilling something down to its essence.

This has a Zen-like beauty and symmetry to it. Damn dude, you were probably just being flippant but it turns out to be profound.

Wow, it's a do-it-yourself kit for making an episode of Blind Date.
