Can MoarVideo.TV Be the Next LiveVideo?

A friend got in touch with me about MoarVideo today.

He says it's got the "good ol' days" feel to it when LiveVideo was in full swing, before all the duh-rama hit and the site fell into shadow. lol

Now normally I wouldn't give it much thought but this was a person who'd been targeted by the drama-folk more than once and for him to have said all this meant I should at least take a look at it. I checked it out and I can't really tell, though.… Continue

Safe Social Networking 4 Kids

I just came across this great little social networking site for the tween set. It's safe and parent-approved! Kids can have their own channels, very much the way we do, and get a jump-start on the social networking scene without having to see Chris Crocker! Wooo!

News about LiveVideo...

THIS from TechCrunch:

There’s currently a thread on Techmeme based on this blog post from Pingdom about the downtime of most of LiveUniverse’s services for the past couple of days. We’ve been getting tips about this since last Thursday, and tried contacting founder & CEO Brad Greenspan (also the founder of MySpace) for an explanation to no avail.

Pingdom caught…

To the Cast & Crew of the ARK...

I just wanted to thank certain people for keeping the energy going on this site.

Ruth, Chig, Dee, Hol, & Doug...thank you so much for generally being available to help out whenever necessary. This place is so low-maintenance that there's not much to do to keep it going, but when I asked you to take on admin status, you did so without really knowing what to expect, so thanks for that.

Thank you to Chig and Sedona, for keeping the spirit of the collabs alive and… Continue

No Spam Allowed

The TOS, as it reads for the ARK, says "play nice".

I've changed it now to include NO SPAM.

Spam is anything that's meant to promote a commercial product.

If it happens twice, I'll remove the account.

Your Song

I opened the audio file you sent me thinking I knew what to expect. After all, you did send me an email before that telling me you were about to send a recording of a song you did and that you wanted my honest opinion about whether you sucked or not. You mentioned all those rejects from American Idol who maybe didn’t have someone to tell them the truth and so, that’s what you wanted- my honest opinion. Sisterly sugar-coats suspended (as if they ever really existed), I was fully prepared to be… Continue

LiveVideo Die-Hards...

I go back and forth, honestly, about whether I'm hurting LV's chances to thrive by having an ARK that displaces some of the creative energy away from there.

However, I don't see people closing up shop on LV just because the ARK is here (maybe two or three, for personal reasons) but as I see it, most of us ARKians have one whole foot in LV and the other roams about trying to get some footing. Many of us have even become more active on YouTube as it is- ironically, the only sure thing.… Continue

Two Years Vloggin'- Here's Why


10. It's a worthwhile hobby (creative, expressive, thought-provoking, a vehicle for putting your thoughts together, etc.)

9. People go, but new people come (if you extend yourself, you widen that circle of positive people and the assholes increasingly become irrelevant)

8. It broadens your paradigm (if you open yourself up to new perspectives- not just stick with your own)

7. It creates an ongoing record of who you were-… Continue

ARK member ONE HUNDRED, and The No-Longer-Temporary-ness of This Place

Steve is member #100.

I was thinkin', when I built the ARK, that we'd get maybe thirty, forty people tops. We not only have a hundred members now, but we got almost that many responding to a survey, which means people are not only signing up, but tuning in!

So here's the deal...gonna open this place up for anyone who wants to put their bags down. That basically means I take back what I said about it being temporary. Because even if LV does come back (by some slim chance),… Continue

The Future of LiveVideo :o(

Hey you guys...I hate to say this, but according to someone in contact with LV staff, it appears that MOTC was right, they're switching data over to other servers, but not to upgrade or maintain...they're doing it to consolidate their dwindling resources.

The person I spoke to projects that LV has a couple of more months left in it and that'll be it.

As dismal as that sounds, it's still a projection made by someone inside the business and he could still be wrong. I just… Continue

The ARK's Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this site is for people to share their video creations and collaborate on projects to put out there into the e-niverse, which is ever-widening into all these Ning sites and what not (yeah, I know..the irony of it doesn't escape me.)


In that spirit, I say...

Look around.

It's a playground

for video hobbyists

and those more serious.
