Last night on the VloggerHeads site, somebody (I think it was Syd the Skeptic) started the "I Heart VloggerHeads Love Fest," encouraging all the vloggers to make a video honoring another member of the site.

I've got two videos to post in here this morning. The first is by my buddy Battim, who did a video called "battim hearts kenrg....kenrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg" - The second is my response, shot this morning, explaining that I missed the Love Fest in favor of Octoberfest...

A good 'Tube friend of mine, 21stCenturyCat (Steve), posted a video a day or two ago in which he recounted a "RL" friend telling him that he was getting too much of his self worth from YouTube. She said that it was unhealthy for him to rely on a web site to make him happy. And Steve is such a nice guy that he took her to heart, and actually questioned whether or not he should be allowed to enjoy YouTube as much as he does.

My answer? There's nothing wrong with getting encouragement and kudos from any source, and enjoying it, even from something as impermanent as an online community. But, somehow, it took me four minutes to spit that out:

Last Saturday, I took part in a 5K fundraising walk for Grail Family Services in East San Jose. Our team brought in about $10,000 for their early literacy and family support programs. Here's my video of the day:

As you know from my previous three entries, I spent last Friday through Monday with three good friends, Tom (tlg847), Paul (renetto), and Peri (PeriUrban/UrbanBlog). Mixed in with all the fun and socializing that you've already seen, we discussed the future of online community, the nature of connecting through video, and building a web site based on our shared vision of how it could be.

We are not anti-YouTube. We love YouTube - it is what brought us all together. But we dream of something even better, and have a plan of how to get there. Stay tuned for more information as we're able to share it.

Day two of my four-day viral video long weekend was mostly spent at Pier 39 in San Francisco, at the second annual SF "As One" YouTube gathering.

In the video here, you'll find some interesting remarks from YouTube founder, Steve Chen, as well as a lot of random nonsense and a pitch for Presidential candidate Barack Obama.
