Launching video comments. Here we go…

Eight Years Later, Is Rackspace Finally Going To Try For Another IPO?

So, we have launched video comments on TechCrunch UK & Ireland, integrated with Seesmic. I’m going to test this out now. Feel free to have a go yourself…

    The video comment is really great now I can see how sad people really are sat in front of their laptops at 12:30am twitterring banal trivia about the minutia of their lives as if their so-called “friends” really care.

    I’m off to the real world to meet real people and have a real conversation about producing something of real value for real money.

    P.S Now we know that TCUK can make changes to the site can you please add in openid selector support or do we have to wait for Arrington to buy a stake in JanRain before it gets promoted here?

  • Steve Andrews

    I agree with Dennis Howlett why the radio silence on the Web Mission jolly?

    Proving that some Web Mission attendee’s only mission was to go to as many parties as possible in the name of [social] networking, thanks to Paul Carr for keeping an unofficial track of them.

    Mike when you wake up from the love in can you pls update us on the tangible benefits of this trip.

  • David Oxley

    I was going to leave a video comment but I couldn’t hold back the tears. Why has poor Mike not got a green comment here like Michael Arrington has at the main TechCrunch? It’s all very sad.

    I LOVE the silent movie comments! Keep’em coming :-)

    PS. Steve Andrews – apologies for the radio silence today, I was busy working on It’s 4am here and I am shortly to leave SF for London, so normal service resume Monday. Have a nice weekend.

    @’Steve Andrews’ – you’re welcome. Only small point is that I wasn’t a Web Mission attendee. I just happened to be in town at the same time as part of a much longer trip and though the Web Mission Fringe idea might bring together the events that had nothing to do with WM but were happening at the same time. None of the events mentioned on that post – or in any of the blog – were Web Mission events. I wasn’t invited to those, but I gather from those that were that they were *all* business. And very useful to boot.



  • Mike Butcher

    Steve Andrews – On tangible benefits: The startups all had private meetings with – variously – potential investors, partners and other people. I know for a fact that several deals will be announced as a result of this trip in the coming weeks and months (Skimbit was the only one to be in a position to confirm three new partnerships during the week) and I assure you that you will be the first to know when the stories happen. Along with the other readers of this site, that is.
    For more see:

    As for the so-called “Web Mission Fringe” – these were largely Internet industry Brits who happened to be in town at the same time. None went to any official WebMission events nor was tax-payers money used to bus anyone other than the WebMission startups around. And frankly it basically feels a little like petty jealously when people criticise others who were imaginative enough to get off their arses and be in town at the same time to swell the ranks of the Brit startups.

    LOL Paul “pretty boy” Carr :-)

  • Alex Leonard

    It’s an interesting idea. However the two things that occur to me are:

    1. Probably not so good for gaining SEO value from your commenters.

    2. When reading through comments the eye takes in an overview of text a lot faster than having to start a load of videos and watch them through.

    That being said, it’s definitely appealing, the thought of just clicking “video comment” and recoding a quick message instead of typing it, and it does have the added bonus of putting a face on various people.

    Damn, it’s a sunny day, I really should be outside..

    This is awsome! look forward to more thanks!
