Flickr Clock

Flickr Clock is a browser for the videos that people add to, and a way to promote the video functionality on their site.They're arranged chronologically, and drawn from videos that people have posted to the flickrclock group on flickr.

The pool is quickly filling up with the usual Flickr brilliance: shadows, windmills, kangaroos, an almost casual "look at all this great stuff we have" that this community excels at providing. It will eventually autoplay, so you can sit back and let the user-generated goodness just wash on over you; sort of like Neave Television without all the wierd cat stuff.

The bottom of the interface lets you scroll back and forth in time, so you can get a broader sense of what the community's been posting:

And the slivers are sized according to the original size that the video was when it was posted, so you get all this lucious user-based variance:
