Yahoo Videoblogging Group History Archive

The current owners of Yahoo have closed the Yahoo groups and deleted the content of pioneers from multiple disciplines. It has happen before and it will happen again.

Long before Vimeo, long before YouTube there were people figuring out how to post video on the early days of the internet.

Some were artists.

Some were tech heads.

A lot of folks had porn as their motivation; meaning there were dozens of postage stamp clips of pre-existing content that found their way into content communities. So I have been told.

And then there were these folks; The Yahoo Videoblogging Group.

However, this time the text content was saved for those that will want to know.

There was news content. There was humor. Documentation of life and more.

All of it funded by individuals and those people that are always willing to go out on a limb.

So, yeah. We did it for Johnny.
