The Big Race

At 10:30 this morning I called a taxi for a trip to El Centro. The taxi company told me that they couldn’t get me to El Centro because of the big race.  My guess is that it’s similar to a big city Marathon in North America.  I thought I could catch a bus – No luck.  I walked the 3 miles.  There were large crowds cheering the runners on in two locations. I finally made it to my appointment.  The video below is a 30 second clip of the race.

Video Sharing Services – YouTube

How popular is your YouTube(Google owned) video? YouTube is the second most visited web site after Google.com. I upload 90% of my videos to YouTube for the following reasons:

  • Universal recognition around the world
  • Easy and intuitive User Interface
  • Free and unlimited storage including High Definition
  • Superb analytics

It’s the 4th bullet point I want to briefly discuss in the screenflow video below and a certain beautiful Moluccan Cockatoo is the reason for many of my views.
