I haven't looked closely at blip.tv until I stumbled upon this presentation by Clay Shirkey, hat tip to Endeca's Daniel Tunkelang for the link. blip.tv really gets how to make a site easy to use - it's video controls were so intuitive I had to embed one here. Of course the content is the key, and Clay's presentation articulates how information overload is still with us. What impressed me about blip.tv was how simple it is, particulalry the links to the right of the player which make it easy to find out more about the video, emded it on another site (like this blog, below) or link to it. Of course most sites do this too, but blip.tv keeps it simple and executes it so well.
