Cull TV, New User-Curated Music Video Streaming Service from Linden/SL Alum, Launches With New Features
Cull TV, a new, user-curated music video streaming service from Linden Lab and Second Life alum, recently launched. Basically, Cull Pandora-fies music videos on YouTube and Vimeo, but unlike Pandora, the playlists are created by users, and you know, you get videos to watch with your tunes.
Largely the brainchild of Katherine de Leon (once known as Iridium Linden) and John "Eddie Stryker" Hurliman, who did great innovation on OpenSim, it recently went out of beta and launched, with some cool new features and functionalities added to the mix since then:
- "We've got music blogs making Cull channels," Katherine tells me. "For example, check out http://cull.tv/sr to see a channel from foryoungmoderns.com. Media companies are making Cull channels too. Check out Big Hassle's channel at http://cull.tv/sq.
- "Users can now turn the Auto DJ on and off, which allows them to curate in a more flexible way. Cull also features many channels that constantly update with trending music videos. Watching these channels (New Music Television, One-Time!, Beat Axxis, Audio Bulwark, Dirty Sticky Floors, and Dead Fingers Talk) are a great way to discover emerging talent."
Where to start? Why not try the Eclectic Method channel, full of geek-friendly beats and videos. I'm making a cool Cull list of my own, and will share that soon here.
