Thanks for highlighting our Reclaim Video work. It should prove very fun, but to be clear we have no illusions that this will be profitable. In fact, we are doing it with the idea it won’t be. In fact, this is a way to draw attention to the ethos that built the foundation of Reclaim Hosting: building community around fun things; preserving a bit of the past; and enjoying trailing edge technologies and media.
In fact, Reclaim Video is a way for us to deflect any direct promotion, sponsorship, or any other vendor-like behavior a company like ours eventually becomes accosted with. If we want to promote a conference or organization (or even individuals) we can do it indirectly as a cutting edge VHS/VCR outfit 🙂 And ideally, but not necessarily, Reclaim Video can become an indirect driver of interest in Reclaim Hosting. But all this comes back to doing something fun with no real expectations it will be profitable or even resonate with most folks. We understand this is an indulgent campaign, and therefore are prepared for the worst.
