Now, I know Vimeo (Connected Ventures) is based in New York, but did you know that they have a tie to the Rose City?
They do. The Community Director for Vimeo, Dalas Verdugo, lives here in good ol’ Portland. I think. I’ll have to admit, I can’t confirm that he lives here. (Chris Anderson, however, can.) But it certainly appears almost certain that he does.
He just posted a photo of IKEA Swedish meatballs. And everyone knows that Portland is still all gaga over the new IKEA. So, he lives here. Probably.
So there’s a tie.
Well, Vimeo just released a widget they’re calling Hubnut
Projector (it was referred to as “Projector” when I originally posted; now they appear to be calling it “Hubnut”), that enables you to embed a series of Vimeo videos within a Web page. And since we’re all big fans of the embeddable media—like SplashCast—around here, I felt it worthy of a mention. An example can be found, below. Scratch that. I tried to embed it and it appeared to conflict with the site template. An example can be found here.
