Dabble had its public launch earlier this week. Founded by my friend Mary Hodder, Dabble is resource for collecting, organizing and searching online video and other media. There are a ton of web-based video services these days and Dabble looks like it will be a really good way to keep track of it all.
Dabble collects video data from 240 + hosting sites that accept video uploads from people, plus tens of thousands of independent sites. Dabble also collects other sorts of media like audio for searching and organizing. And Dabblers bookmark media they find around the web. Dabble does not host media, but instead, makes media from anywhere on the web searchable, collectable through our bookmarking tool, part of a community, able to be tagged and commented upon, made into playlists and played. Dabble is an organizing tool to help people discover the value of media.
UPDATE: I just found out (via Ted Rheingold), that my good friend Ryan Junell, along with Brian Christian, recently released episode zero of their new video blog “The Vlogger”, a orginal series featured on Dabble.
