With each emerging content type comes the ever-present need to help users find it. While text-based search has continued to evolve, effective tools for rich media are still nascent.

Google’s announcement that it was launching its very own Video Store dazzled a lot of folks. While the interface is anything but high-gloss (in fact, it is so understated—like all things Google—it’s almost silly), this “search engine’s” further push into media-mogul territory captured a whole lot of attention.

Still, streaming video is hot, hot, hot, and a lot of ink (e- and otherwise) will be spilled analyzing this move and the populist approach Google has taken by putting “Joe’s home movies” on a virtual shelf right next to super-successful television series.
