Project description: “RAW is a set of tools and processes for capturing, in an unconventional way, everyday subjective experience of a place, a culture, a people.” Sounds, almost, like videoblogging to me :)

VideoBlogging: “Things are happening in the videoblogging community in 2004! We have an active mailing list, during Video Blogging Week a bunch of us posted 1 videoblog entry a day, we’re discussing creating a Desk Top Tool, and soon we hope our first 70 year old videoblogger online!”

I’m looking for pointers to server side video optimizing products, as in, you upload a not-so-compressed video, and the script can compress it further for you for showing on the web.
