Manigong Bagong Taon!

That’s “Happy New Year!” in Tagalog.

I wrote this post hours before midnight and set it to automatically appear at the start of the new year. I’ll at my friend Liz’s house party at midnight, so please accept these in absentia wishes. Have a good one!

Joey,

I am reading a lot about the new Internet craze called Vlogs. ABC News predicted it will be one of the hottest Internet trends of 2006.

Is Tucows on top of this?

Been on top of it for a while!

Blogware has been vlog-capable for the longest time: you can inlcude videos as “enclosures” within blog entries. Making a Blogware blog a “vlog” is simple a matter of the blog’s author posting video rather than text entries.

Tell you what — later tonight (Toronto time) I’ll post a video entry from the new year’s eve party I attended last night to demonstrate vlogging in action.

I know it is all simply web hosting so why the big deal over vlogging vs. blogging?

I look forward to seeing the video.

Joey,

My concern is if the avergae Joe is looking for a blog and he visits Bloware’s website, he won’t see anything about a Vlog and he may look elsewhere for service.

If you take yourself out of your tech mind and into that of a simpleton, you can see it.

Of course, this is all speculation that Vlogs will boom in 2006 but if they do, it only seems sensible that Bloware would add a “Vlog capable” note on to their website.

Joey,

Do you have time for another question?

Do you know anything about Registrarstats.com? Last quarter, they slightly under reported Tucows total domain name registrations and now they are showing a nice bump in registrations for the 4th quarter compared to the 3rd quarter for Tucows.

Do you know if there data is accurate?
