Now Even More Video Aggregation…Why?

Digg and StumbleUpon are two bookmarking services that added video bookmarks to their suite of offerings earlier this month. Now more start-ups are jumping on the bandwagon, this time with a slight twist.

Megite and Tailrank are adding video memes (clusters) to their mostly web-content offerings. (Liz has details and screenshots on NewTeeVee.)

While it is ultra fashionable to add video to A-N-Y-T-H-I-NG, most start-ups do need to ensure that they excel in their core competence. This morning I checked out both the video offerings, and to put it politely, I am not checking out the video part of their offering again anytime soon. However, if they can integrate video clippings with their traditional news/web content services, things could get interesting, and add another dimension to their overall value proposition.
