It’s highly likely that you’ve heard of Digg. In fact, we have a Digg button on most articles, and have been “dugg” numerous times in our illustrious first 42 days of being online.
The code monkeys here at PVC (namely me), have been working feverishly to bring a Digg-like clone to the professional video market. Let’s face it, as valuable as Digg is, it’s really for the general consumer market and short of doing searches, there are no categories for the Professional Video person. So we created PVC-it. Yeah, yeah the marketing people weren’t exactly up all night with that one (again me), but hey it works pretty well, and it’s cool.
So here’s the idea:
Click here every day to see what others have voted for. Heck, check several times a day to check out the top video stories across the web. That’s right, when you see a story on any pro video site, PVC-it and it will alert others to click on over. As with Digg, users will need to vote on current stories, or upcoming stories. Once a story gets at least 5 votes, it moves from “upcoming” to “published”.
As a community member, it’s up to you, in addition to the great writers here, to scout the web and highlight the best stories, whether on the PVC itself, StudioDaily, DMN, Creative Cow…anywhere.
If you’d like to get the code to place the PVC-it button on your site click here in the PVC FAQ in the forums to get it.
*Update* When you first register you have the luxury of right-clicking a special link which will place the PVC-it bookmark in your bookmarks folder. From then on when you are on a site with and there’s an article you want to PVC-it, you simply click that bookmark link and it will open a browser window (under) your current window so you can add the article to PVC-it. If you’ve already registered, you can go into “profile” and do the same with the bookmarklet.
