Last week my dad was showing me his new toy the Logitec Pro Webcam over Skype. I grabbed a screencast of this hilarious and awesome video chat together with my father. All I can say is he is an amazing man, and I love him so much. He’s one of my heroes for sure! He talks about diet, surviving in the corporate world, credit crisis and tech support. My dad is just trying to keep it real in a virtual world. How do you communicate online with your family?

It is somewhat scary when you are single and the universe keeps sending you weird messages. Last weekend I was casting for a role in a commercial (which I didn't get, bummer) where I was told I was going to play a "romance novel cover model" to try and pick up girls with some friends. Now on google alerts I get the message that apparently I am in one: (a review from Wild Lady (Scarlet))
"Claudia Beaumont is in danger. Gabriel MacIntyre is having real trouble convincing her of that. And he's having trouble keeping his hands off her too. It should be easy - heck she's exactly the sort of woman he loathes; but then he discovers the real LADY behind the WILD."
Whatever happens with Mobuzz and it's future, I know one thing is sure. I will continue with teaching, educating, fighting and spreading the word of internet tv, video blogging, and the freedom of expression in the audio visual form without borders and censors. It has been my passion for the last 8 years and I do not see it stopping anytime soon. I am not saying that Mobuzz is dead. Quite the contrary, I am seeing how powerful and beautiful this campaign to Save Mobuzz, and the affect for positive it has had. The comments and the support has brought me to tears more than once. Whatever happens, I thank you all. It has given me more than you can imagine.
Peace, love, and keep on buzzn!
Since mobuzz launched there have been a flood of comments, blog posts, twitters and more. At the moment we really need more help as it is really slowing down. But the love that has been expressed is more than the haters, so much more. If nothing elese it is so nice to see how much people love the show. I really hope it can be saved, but it is not looking good at the moment. The meter is stuck on 15% and we should be at at least 20% by now. But that not withstanding, just look at some of the beautiful comments that have been posted...

I'm deeply upset. If i wasn't an Unemployed Student, i would be more then willing to help support. In this time of uncertain stability i'm finding hard to get work. When i do get some stable money behind me, I would be happy to put something foreword.
I do however have an idea to pass by you. I would think that if you run this campaign, not only for the next few days, but for the rest of the lifetime of Mobuzz you could maintain a little more support along side. I would think many of our fellow community would help in ways such as this.
I have also been reading some of the comments posted before me and as 'maeghith' talked about other outlets i must agree....I was waiting and watching on YouTube via the Subscriptions tab. I found this the easiest way for myself to get my Mobuzz fix. This is one reason why i found myself heading over to the homepages. If you could upload a campaign video, i think it could hit a 100 or more people on YouTube. The internet is at your power.
I always preferred people who do things even if they make mistakes than those who do nothing. I cross the fingers for you and for Mobuzz
CIT to all the haters:
This wonderfull "hidden" crew delivered a DAILY freshup of "TOP" hightech News and Recommendations of interesting extrordinary websites, portals, gadges and software! FOR FREE !!!
To get your attentention, all shows have been never been the same. Not one content, not one background, not one T-Shirts !!! Not even in the different countries In Spain, France as the English site, which i visited daily here in Holland.
Mobuzz is the one and only realtime TV, discovering our WEB about the WEB.
And this with fun and multilinguale!
These French / Spain /Dutch / English teams worked hard daily to deliver the dailybuzz news.
It looks like, the crew has spend so much money (in servers and streams payments) and also in time, enthusiasm to work together, that they have forgot the basics..to need to stay alive.
It is clear, bussiness and money was not the first goal by this project ! It was the buzz!
This extraordinary club MOBUZZ delivered content, you will not find elsewhere on the web.
And now they need our support. RIGHT NOW !!!.....
Because time is running !!!!
Support NOW !!! ...
Send some money to the intire Mobuzz Team, they need to get to survive to deliver you further daily buzz !!!
All the best to the team, all the money you need for the deadline.....
I've donated 100 Eur. I don't want a refund if you don't make it to your goal. Consider it a reflection of the enjoyment I've had over the last couple of years.
That said, I've always wondered how you were monetizing MoBuzz; obviously it's been tough but do consider a subscription based service. I'd pay a 5 Eur per month subscription.
Good luck but don't sell yourselves short in the hunt for funding.
For VlogEurope we usually do some kind of excursion. The reason is we are vloggers and like to get out and record things rather than sit inside listening to powerpoint presentations. This year we were split into teams. I was in the A Team along with BicycleMark and Isabelle (who had never vlogged before but was curious about it so came along). We had the most excellent day walking around Budapest, seeing things, taking shots, sharing stories and learning more about eachother. Well Mark and I already know a lot about each other as we are neighbours in Amsterdam, and friends for years, but it was so nice to meet Isabelle. We all became friends that day. And thanks to vlogging, we have the video to remember those moments when our friendship started to bloom. Here is the vlog that BicycleMark edited together.
GabeB told me I should make something creative to purge the demons of my breakup with Tamara. So I decided to make this compilation film of photos and videos from our last 4 years together. Of course not everything is in here, there is so much on the net, but it was very good to do and reminded me of the good times. So thanks for the memories, and the lessons I have learned. Be kind in this purging of my soul.
A little over a week ago I was at the Next Web conference. There I saw a girl that I knew online, but not offline. Marlooz (Marloes Veldhuizen). No for those of you who haven't been following the twitters of me of late, we've been having a true web 2.0 dating affair. I will take you through it all now... So I think the best start is a video which Marlooz posted about it to explain how it started.
