Have Money Will Vlog

Now this is one awesome idea: Have Money Will Vlog.

Have Money Will Vlog? What’s the deal?
Many good projects need only action to be successful. With the distribution of the internet, a person with a good video project can be seen by thousands of people. But some ideas need money.
Money for equipment.
Money for travel.
Money for time.

Traditional artists can apply for grants to make their work. Have Money Will Vlog supports videobloggers trying to do the amazing. The power of the community can fund projects on a regular basis. You easily spend $10 or more everytime you go out to see a movie…so consider donating $10 a month to a videoblog project. If we have 100 people that give $10 a month, that’s $1000. Let’s energize creators.

Ok already. I did it.

I'm on Myspace as alternativechris. Probably one of the last people on earth to sign up. Oh well.

Eeeeeuwwww - it's a NEWT

Man, that thing was biiiiig. But - sooooo friendly. A little yucky though. Brendan found it digging in some mud. He put it back in the mud after a few minutes. Don't worry.

Well, we were thinking about BBQing it for a second or two. Decided to go to M&Gs instead. Yeah - their burgers rock.

Vloggers are great

Went to the vloggercon meetup today in SF - what a glorious day. What excellent people.

Oh, yeah. That's me at Markus' place - thanks Jan for taking such a nice photo!
