Free Service on Ning is Being Eliminated

TechCrunch reports: Ning's Bubble Bursts: No More Free Networks, Cuts 40% of Staff. This isn't a copyright issue, but a matter of profits: they're finding free networks insufficiently profitable, and so are going to be focusing more on their "premium" services.

This may displace vidders (again!) who put their work at places like Bam Vid Vault and other networks after the fall of Imeem; we're also going to see more disruption of vidding communities. We remind you to document yourself and other fans on Fanlore so that people looking for you and your work can find you regardless of what platforms, services, or networks you use--and yes, yes, we need A Vidding Archive of Our Own!

How disappointing.

I'm seeing what interest there is in a vid-auction to support AO3. If anyone is interested, here's the post:

We want a vidding archive that WON'T GO DOWN! :)
