Afternoon of the YouTube "Killers"

Not to criticize the category, but video sites are a bit of a commodity these days. The popularity of YouTube is no small factor, and it’s not shameful at all to pitch a company calling it a “YouTube Killer.” But we didn’t expect to ever have two companies show up at the same moment for meetings with two ClickZ editors. That happened this afternoon when Kate Kay and I each made appointments with two separate companies.

Let’s just say both companies had a few minutes to introduce themselves and chat for a minute while we had a bit of a laugh at our desks and tried to figure out how best to greet the competitors waiting for us.
