The history of Bytesize goes all the way back to the late 90s, when we ran a series of streaming "gag" cartoons on the front page of NG. At some point the cartoons went stale and the feature seemed obnoxious, so we scrapped it.

Almost a decade later, we reintroduced Bytesize with the big NG redesign launch of July, 2007. Only this time, it featured a much more expansive selection of cartoons by numerous artists from around the site. Like before, though, its time may pass and something else may take its place on the front page. In case that happens, I decided it would be fun to give it a permanent place here in the Portal! Enjoy!

Amazing work

Many of the animators did an excellent job. However, it was far too long and extremely difficult to sit through. I believe many of the entries could have been left out altogether for the benefit of the movie.

I don't think this idea would get stale if it were consistantly updated with new clips on a regular basis. Biannually or quarterly perhaps? Every time enough short clips are collected to launch the update, do with the old ones just like you've done to these--archive them in a special category on the site. Keep the cycle going.

I love these; I'm always looking forward to seeing new ones. I think these drastically boost the face-value of the front page, too. It grabs a viewer's interest right off the bat.
