Edublogs.tv Fiasco

Perhaps we've all become a bit inured to the fact that so-called Web 2.0 services can disappear at will. I won't bother going into the list (where is that darn list anyways?). The fact is, Edublogs.tv--organizers of Edublogs.org--have taken their service offline...indefinitely with little notice to anyone in the hope of improvement.

Unfortunately, as drmike described, Edublogs.tv was taken offline. We're working on a new and improved version which should be available at the end of this year or beginning of next (sooner if we can). It would be a good idea to upload any videos you need access to on a different hosting site for the time being. We definitely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hmm...anyone else having this response left in the Edublog forums?
I agree with hharvey... I had embedded my videos into websites and wikis, but do not have a list of all the videos. If we could somehow log back into our account and at least recapture them? Especially since I don't have the originals any longer.
Pretty sad. A free service goes offline and the organizers don't bother to tell anyone until someone complains. What a disappointing turn of events.

Thanks to ATW's comment online.

Certainly not the news I wanted to hear - especially since another video host, Motionbox, which I have also used for my school-based videos is closing up on 8/12. At least they gave us some time to scramble...

This is very disappointing, i left the school I'd been teach at with this setup to replace the clunkier take video home & ftp. I can't believe the thoughtlessness. I expected edublogs to be more suitable for school video than more 'commercial' sites.
