What would you do about it indeed?
Good Magazine is a great source for news stories that are positive and uplifting usually. This one doesn't fall into that category, yet I imagine has a pure purpose and motivation.

posted by Micki, that refers to Magnify's Steve Rosenbaum's recent writing. I love it because I feel that Revver and Magnify are indeed doing that. I love Rosenbaum's phrase 'video is simply frozen knowledge'. It captures what it means to me.
I uploaded my 400th video on Revver tonight. My earnings have slowed right down. I began to wonder last week, why I still bothered with it. I guess it is about the freezing of my knowledge and what I see in the world. I like that I can write a blog and take a video and put it online. I like that I can refer others if they are interested to have a look. I do it for me and I know that many others are doing for themselves and it will create a mass of information that could be useful.
When I read this article it felt truthful.

In front of a live studio audience his performance seemed to go well. This is a clip of how it seemed that night.
This is what was shown on TV on Sunday night. Editing changes everything. So what do you think of that?

"Jaman is a new online community for people that enjoy world
cinema. For filmmakers, jaman is a global and secure way of distributing
cinematic quality films and documentaries over the Internet. "
There are some good offerings on the site. Different countries have licencing restrictions and there are free downloads and rentals as well as fees associated with some of these services. It is in beta. There are currently 2 Australian films, Siam Sunset and 15 Amore. I have seen Siam Sunset and enjoyed it. It is a black comedy with fantasy and escapism. Some great scenery. I loved what it said about colour.
I have yet to see 15 Amore, but can't access it via this site. It looks great. There is a preview that can be viewed.
There are forums and groups where users can discuss the films they view. I think this is an amazing resource for film lovers. I live in regional Australia and it is very rare for independant film to make it's way to our local cinema. The video stores don't always stock them either. Websites like this will allow all to enjoy the choice.

Public Domain Movies - Only 22 movies today, but potentially an interesting site, particularly for those who like old movies.
Some of them run for over an hour and I haven't watched them right through yet. Interesting concept though.
The TV Trail
Runs with a similar concept but I have a feeling these shows are not public domain. The Simpsons, Six Million Dollar Man and Twilight Zone are some of the shows featured on the home page of the channel.
I notice that many have created channels that so far contain nothing. I guess, Magnify is getting a lot of media right now and people are just staking claims, so to speak, creating their own spaces within this space with hopes for the future.
It is a space to watch.
The falling brick channel received over 500 views today. That's great! There is an interesting clip that was submitted today about the classic Australian delicacy of Tim Tams. Called 'Slam', it is interesting and whilst it runs a little long, is worth a watch.

Here is a selection from Magnify:
All about Tesla
Magnify is really taking off. The number of channels grows daily. There is good traffic on these sites. I am pleased because all my interactions with the Magnify team have been pleasant and I am confident they are going to be a great success.
