Whatever floats your boat...
I think this is good news....
The company which bought Ning out a few years back... (probably around the time that Ning development ceased and support started to flounder) has closed its doors abruptly.
Here is the article:
After several hours having taken Ning down, Ning came back, and released the following statement on their twitter and facebook feeds. (if you recall I mentioned no new word had come from Ning for months.)
"Mode is gone, but we aren’t (despite appearances to the contrary)! We’re aware Ning.com and all Ning Networks are currently inaccessible and are working to disentangle our setup from Mode’s to return service as quickly as possible! Please bear with us in the interim."
"Happy to report we've restored services to Ning.com and all Ning Networks. We appreciate your patience while we worked to sort this out. Please keep an eye out on our Creators Network, creators.ning.com, for more updates and news soon!"
This to me might also explain the sudden increase in price, as Ning is intending to continue, now the governing forces of the past few years are no longer a factor.
Sorry for any anxiety that was caused by anyone trying to log into the Ark yesterday. Smile. I have a good feeling about this. Something I have not felt about Ning due to recent appearances.
and damn it... we have to get to those life boats. Vimeo, is fine, but it lacks a lot of what we have here.
