Searching for video online

Interesting discussion out of a panel at the Digital, Life, Design conference from Munich a month ago. Mahalo, Wikia, Google (in the audience) and others were discussing search and how to best go about it.

The final punch line;

Short Head – Powered by Humans

Fat Belly – Powered by Social

Long Tail – Powered by Algorithms

There’s something really neat about this. That’s not a reason to believe it is the right model, but I really think it warrants further analysis.

My interest is how does this concept apply to video discovery/search?

Also worth reading Chris Anderson’s comment on the post.
