Much joy in the office today as our brand new video page has finally been given the Official Thumbs Up and is live for you all to enjoy. We've been producing and publishing tons of videos, both from here in the UK and around the ZDNet/CBS Interactive global empire, but until now they've been hard to find and easy to miss.
No more. All of our output is now available in one place, with tons of nice searchy and clicky to guide you through the glades of the moving image. Everything should load faster, play better and be far easier to keep an eye on, and I'm jolly pleased to be able to let everyone know about it.
Those who are fans of our sister sites silicon.com and cnet.co.uk may recognise various features of the video page. It's one of our first projects designed from the outset to provide common functionality across multiple outlets. I won't bore you with the details of what goes on behind the pages, nor the incredible amount of co-ordination that has to happen between editorial, technical, ops, advertising, marketing and quite possibly the Akond of Swat (I'm sure I saw him in a project meeting last week), but this has been the first major project I've seen come together from my perch in the editorial chair. Magic stuff.
As with all new complex technical things, there may be the odd hiccough, glitch or curiosity that we've missed in our testing - if you spot something happening that looks awry, let me know and I'll get the Akond on it straight away.
For now, though, get stuck in.
