Very interesting project by Yahoo.

It is very similar to Jonathan Harris project "We feel fine" (http://www.wefeelfine.org). It is not that surprising, considering that the mentioned author has also created the Yahoo Time Capsule" (http://timecapsule.yahoo.com/capsule.php). It seems that Yahoo is working closely to Harris :-)

The people that do the actual design work there are amazing and incredibly talented. Unfortunately the people they work for are incredibly insane.

Hi, I work for the design innovation team, thanks very much for your interest in us! We are still getting started, and will be posting more of the interactive versions of our work, etc. We're huge fans of Stamen, btw!

Not all are Quicktime movies: Grow a plant is shown as an interactive prototype.

As for the next competitors of Stamen... It's a very long shot for now.
