Eyespot is a browser based video editing and mixing tool that enables you to easily create and edit video clips online, and IMHO an important site to watch over the next year or so. If youtube is like a Video Blog, then Eyespot is like a Video Wiki.

Already some great bands have been uploading their videos and music for fans to mashup. Bands include The Streets, The Stills, Five For Fighting, and Three Days Grace.
