1) American Girl – The Video | Animoto
Animoto is a web application that automatically generates professionally-produced videos. The one above uses pictures from my recent Atlanta trip. My firm helped design the American Girl store there.
You can upload up to 15 images for every 30 second story you want to create and add your music or pick from Animoto’s music lounge. It’s dead simple to use and serves up easily on other sites like Facebook, but it has some limitations. Maybe Scrapblog will buy it and fold it into their site?

So it's great to see this progress. PRSA even invited me to this year's conference through Facebook.
