Been playing around with Hulu, the new video venture of NBC and Fox. It’s actually pretty amazing and a testament to the importance of quality. There’s a ton of content on there already (over 100 shows and movies including a bunch of stuff I’ve been wanted to check out like 24, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Heroes and Tin Man). What really surprised me, though, is that they included embedability of partial and entire clips. To test out the functionality I posted a few minutes from an episode of Family Guy over on my Tumblr as well as the full first episode of Tin Man.

You can sign up for the beta at Hulu.com (if I had any invites I’d offer them up).
