Best of all, you can watch and share your videos with friends and family, and embed them on blogs and community websites immediately.
Ok - maybe this is one of the many features that Google is rolling out in stages, cause, sure, the upload and processing part were short, but my video is still stuck on the verification step, which could take (and has taken) days to complete:
Submission complete; your video is currently being verified.
If there is a way to bypass this, Google ain't telling... (yet)

In the one dollar experiment I decided to bet a dollar on George, the monthlydollar.com guy. While possibly not as popular a site as George would have liked, he's still managed to snarf up 79 bosses, and therefore at least $79 (his salary can be paid one month at a time - as I did).
So what have I got for the dollar? According to my MapStats statistics, over the last week I have received a whopping 43 visitor-referrals from the monthlydollar.com, his blog, or people searching for the monthlydollar. While hardly a lot, it has boosted my average number of visitors from 11 to 20, and it has been less than 2.5 cent per referral. I have also been visited by the me-too fairy, with a comment pointing to a shameless european copycat version of the site...
Below is the stats from Site Meter - you can see the spike on the 26th when I hired George:
So has it been worth it? It's been moderately interesting, for sure. We'll see how it pans out in a month or so.
