BTW, good taste in music RG. Add some of the Pixies and maybe some more Radiohead and you could have a great 90's station.

YouTube turned out to be easy and fun so I added it and edited the first post here to reflect that. Anyone out there with a YouTube account please give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

Am having the same trouble adding either of my youtube user names to the profile. It doesn't stick once Update is clicked.

@Butrflynet,
I have two youtube accounts, one I sign into using my Google login and the other is an older Youtube account before Google absorbed it.

Am trying the user names from both of them and neither stick.

@Butrflynet,
It saved, but had a bug in displaying the posted value (that is now fixed). But it doesn't look like the account you added has any uploaded or favorite videos.

@Robert Gentel,
Okay, I moved some favorites over to that account. Nothing is showing in the profile yet, but it may take a few minutes for it to seed.

@Butrflynet,
It's working now. Great job, Robert.

A2K will soon be a great rival for all the social networks.

@Izzie,
You entered your whole url, when you need to just enter the red part (your username only).

Eventually we'll write some code to automatically strip out the extra stuff but for now you have to put it in exactly for it to work.

If anyone is interested in sharing music in an A2K group, I created one for that purpose. Anyone is welcome to join.

@Robert Gentel,
Not yet. Have been meaning to take a look at it. Been hearing a lot about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter

It appears to be very similar to the Facebook structure. If so, I'll probaby pass. I don't find Facebook all that appealing or useful.

@Butrflynet,
This article describes what I dislike about this new trend in social network usage. They've become popularity contests based on quantity rather than quality. Who can draft the most friends to their network, who can generate the most traffic drawn to themselves, etc.

http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB117373145818634482-ZwdoPQ0PqPrcFMDHDZLz_P6osnI_20080315.html

Quote:
Eric Meyer also had to rethink his online network after experiencing what he calls a "Twitter storm." He and friends found themselves receiving 30 to 40 posts a day from one person musing about what to have for dinner and commercials spotted on television. "Who doesn't have a friend like that, who shows up at a party and just won't stop talking," the 37-year-old Cleveland Web consultant said. "Like I didn't have enough information flowing my way every day." He has since created a second Twitter account, linked to a more limited group of friends.

@Robert Gentel,
I might be doing something wrong but I have photos on webshots I want to show up here as embedded images. So far, all I can do is provide a link to the image. What can I do with my images from Webshots (username russgrace) I want to embed on my posts. RG, are you set up for Webshots?

Such as the folllowing:
