    That's SO cool!!! Are they paying you for it?

  2. No, they aren't paying for it.

    They are showing my content on the Free For All™ tier which doesn't
    cost subscribers anything over the cost of the basic service.

    I hope that by including my vlog content on Akimbo, more people will be
    exposed to video blogging, and might even be inspired to create their
    own content.

    It's great to have Steve on Akimbo... we've always envisioned this as a democratizing technology, something that permits anyone to reach an audience with video content. In our view, it really becomes mainstream when video is easy to see on the TV, not just on the PC, so that's what we set out to do.

    It's very cool to watch the Carol & Steve show on my TV, and Rocketboom... cooler still is to see the Akimbo content guide featuring the Carol & Steve Show right between the BBC and CNN alphabetically! That's democratizing of video providers... each has an equal opportunity to reach and develop an audience.
