Get Democracy Now


If you're looking for a way to track down and collect all the cool video online, there's a tool that just might grow into the iTunes-ish weapon of choice... right down to the familiar interface.

It's called Democracy, and it's available free at www.getdemocracy.com. It's an attempt to bring order to the joyful anarchy of youtube, and so far it's been a great way to subscribe to vintage commercials, strange animations, fascinating feeds from Media Matters, as well as old favorites like Rocketboom and TWIT. And I've discovered lots of great clips from Videobomb and del.icio.us. It's an awesome open source tool, and it will only get better as it grows.

As MTV used to say "Turn it on, leave it on" and when you come back to your computer you'll find a lot of really fun video (and a lot of weird video) you NEVER would have found on your own.
