YouTube long-form

Check out Robert Scoble’s post on longer videos coming to YouTube. He also has a link to a Mark Cuban post in which Mark argues that YouTube’s business model is flawed and that Hulu‘s is better. However, Hulu only has content generated by NBC and Universal (such as full-length movies), and no user-generated content (such movies about Project54 research on YouTube) so it seems like we’re comparing apples and oranges. Perhaps a better comparison is between YouTube and Flickr, especially now that you can upload movies to Flickr. Both YouTube and Flickr are social networking sites, while Hulu is not.
