Quando Francesco Micheli si muove bisogna alzare le antenne. Il 78enne finanziere parmense d’origine e milanese di adozione, raffinato melomane, ideatore del festival musicale MiTo, è uomo dalle forti relazioni e dai grandi affari. Nell’ultimo periodo è posizionato vicinissimo al premier Matteo Renzi, tanto da essere stato ospite del matrimonio del suo superconsigliere Marco Carrai; ma Micheli è stato prima vicino a Silvio Berlusconi e ancor più in la ai potenti della Prima Repubblica. Già “enfant prodige” della finanza della Montedison di Eugenio Cefis, poi scalatore della Bi-Invest di “Carletto” Bonomi, poi ancora ideatore con Silvio Scaglia di eBiscom e della sua miliardaria quotazione, e ancora “raider” della Banca Nazionale dell’Agricoltura di Giovanni Auletta Armenise…

YouTube Gets A Built-In GIF Creator



Remember back in November of last year, when I wrote that YouTube needed to build their own tool for making GIFs from videos? Some called me crazy. Many, however, agreed completely.

It seems YouTube agreed, too. YouTube is now quietly rolling out its own GIF maker.

It doesn’t seem to be enabled on all videos just yet, but it’s definitely there for some. Take, for example, pretty much any video from PBS’ Idea Channel (as spotted first by Andy Baio). Click to one of their videos, hit the share button, and GIF away.

GIF creation through the tool is quite simple: tap the share button, set your start/end points, set any captions you might want, and create away. The tool is SUPER fast, and YouTube hosts the GIFs themselves.
