Video and the Net

I am not sure about all this video stuff.  First there was YouTube but now it seems everyone is getting in on the act.  Even Flickr, the photo sharing site.

Personal movies have always been the bane of family get togethers, in particular those "what we did on our holidays" in glorious 8mm film format - you know, the ones that turned orange before it was possible to transfer them to video.  Not that the average quality of internet video is much better but at least the colors won't fade!

So why the incredible interest now?  It beggars belief.  I even own a video camera and have three movies on YouTube but I simply can't find any enthusiasm to do more.
