This is great. I love this stuff. This just goes to show what fantastic value can be delivered by the combination of video and broadband Internet connection.

A few weeks ago Ann and Anja went on a Christmas shopping trip to London, after which Ann wrote about it on her blog. I read it, and sure it sounded fun. But here is a video of them on the London high street! There they are, wishing everyone a merry christmas (in Dutch, in case you were wondering what that funny language was).

The other example that really brought home for me the power of personal video online is the YouTube page for Dan and Chizuko, who, like many proud parents these days, are putting short video clips of their adorable twins Alicia and Brandi up on the Internet for all their remote family (Dan’s family are in Texas but he lives in Tokyo) to see.

I love technology.
