Hulu: Better than Youtube?

The Machinist blog over at Salon.com thinks so.

Here is Hulu.com's self-described mission:

Hulu's ambitious and never-ending mission is to help you find and enjoy the world's premium content when, where and how you want it. We hope to provide you with the web's most comprehensive selection of premium programming across all genres and formats – television shows, feature films, clips, and more. Additionally, we want to give you more choices of when and where you can enjoy your favorite programming, while creating innovative experiences that let you watch and participate in online video in new and exciting ways.

In plain English: you get to watch tv programs and movies for free, albeit with short commercials. Since Hulu is brought to you from NBC and News Corp. the content is largely from those companies. Nonetheless, it is major breakthrough to legally download entire programs for free online. And that is deeply cool. The Machinist pulled samples such as The A-Team, Hill Street Blues, SNL, and The Tonight Show. I've signed up for an invitation to the Hulu Beta and am looking forward to sorting through this stuff.

In other news I've developed a full-on cold that has made me feel deeply crappy. It's some better, but it's one of those "walk from one room to another and feel exhausted" type things. I hate those.
