I only know Blip because of this group and only for a couple of weeks 
and, still, I want to see them succeed.  Why?  They're friendly and 
concientious.  They're offering a good service.  They're ahead of the 
curve.  They're not Time Warner.  Go Blip.  Go see my videos on Blip 


We've got 24 videos (shameless plug) and they're all available on 

But I still have bandwidth issues on my own site and I am merely 
inquiring if pooling the bandwidth spend of multiple users won't get 
us a better deal all around?  If the ~2,000 on this group formed a 
cooperative, that cooperative could go to Blip and say, "Hey, add our 
$10,000 a month to your bandwidth buy and let's get more bandwidth 
for all of us."  If that would help Blip, great.  If it'll help me, 
great.  If I never need the extra bandwidth because I don't attract 
taht much attention, my spend is the same.  I'm just creating a pool 
of bandwidth for use by the cooperative members.
