When I first heard about GodTube, I groaned. 'Not another pathetic Christian knock-off.'
I signed up for an account--hey, it's part of what I do to be involved, even in places that rub me the wrong way--but I never spent any time there. In fact, I've never gone there to watch a movie unless someone linked me to one and asked me to watch it.
Then, about a month ago, I got an email saying that GodTube was going to change its name. The email made a huge deal about this name change thing, and I felt like I was missing something because I couldn't, for the life of me, find any indication as to what the new name was going to be.
Looking back on it, I think it was supposed to generate hype.
For me, it was just confusing.
But today I got another email, this time announcing that GodTube had officially changed its name to tangle. So I clicked over and have been encouraged. The new look is slick and clean. I really like it.
Unfortunately, they don't have a large format version of their logo for me to post, so, I used my rather pathetic Illustrator skills to vectorize their logo to blow it up, brought it into Photoshop, played with it a bit, and came up with something that is moderately similar:
So, here's to the next generation of Christian video sharing: May it become a place that helps connect Christians interested in media, allow us to share our ideas in such a way that we all ultimately grow into the people we should be.
