Maybe your computer is too old and slow to handle video editing, Or maybe you don’t even HAVE a computer. You can always go to the local cyber café, plug in your cell phone (which shoots video, of course) and edit and post to the Internet for all the world to see. All the cool kids are doing it.

Many of the new video creators are entering the video blogging world without any investment, as their phone comes equipped with a camcorder and they can find the basic editing tools for free on Web sites such as Jumpcut.com and Eyespot.com.

Free online editing software was born out of frustration with pricey packaged software.

“The reason we started was that we had DV (digital video) phones and DV cameras and were trying to edit video, but it was really hard. Packaged software is like a freaking space shuttle, it’s so difficult to use,” said Eyespot co-founder David Dudas.

The story, from Reuters, was written by Lucas van Grinsven, European Technology Correspondent, and posted Feb. 2, 2007. (Found via Lost Remote.)
