Here’s a simple file i made later for this blog for the first Mozilla native support, or here’s the paper of the tool i worked for as researcher, introduced at SVG Open 2005);
– videoblogs: a lot of expert or wannabe videomakers started to use the web to let their creation available to people as .mov files linked by thumbnails in Blogspot posts, extending the experience to the jungle of icons of your desktop where the files were downloaded.

*I catched a glimpse to these rows:
Bob: So right now it’s, I don’t know, it’s like 10 in the morning, something like that. What has – what was your last 24 hours like?
Max Levchin: […] And in between I walked my dog a couple of times. And I saw my girlfriend for an hour. Because I went to have – I had some kefir with my girlfriend. You know what that is? Kefir?
Max Levchin: It’s a sour milk drink.
Max Levchin: It’s really good. It’s a Russian delicacy.[…]
