What is Visual.ly?

I’m intrigued. My assumption from the name is some kind of bit.ly for the visual realm.

Interesting(?) A little. Maybe….*heavy sigh* – y’know I used to really love information design and feel like part of a visual community trying to make a difference but now if everyone’s doing it and recognising it as ‘information design”…well, it’s feeling like it could be losing it’s “hey, cool!” factor and turning into graphically designed marketing info more akin to “yeah, sure.”

I’m especially unsettled by the fact that the end of the YouTube viewing it tells me Rebecca Black’s Friday [official video!] is up next – what kind of sick filter does that viewer profile generate?
