Fwd: [info] VIDEO BLOGGING

This is the response I got from the people at archive.org regarding
the possibility of archiving video blogs on their site…

Looks like they aren't quite ready for it yet…

Hi,

I did some checking with my collections tech person, and I am not sure
we are ready for video blogs after all. However since your site is a
website it can be crawled and archived in our Wayback Machine. Follow
the instructions here: http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#1 to make
sure you are crawled. Although we might not get every single bit of your
site, we should get most of it. In the future we plan on having a
bigger stronger better faster crawler that will do an even better job
crawling your site; this is not to far off. Also you can contribute
videos to our open source video section of the site here:
http://www.archive.org/movies/opensource_movies.php.

Hope this works for you; let me know what questions you have.

thank you for wanting to contribute to the archive,

Astrid Bragg
Office Manager
