I've switched to a new video service, blip.tv. It's my hope that it will provide a wider promotion field for these videos. This particular chapter contains a story from Twain's Roughing It days about a young lawyer named Oliver. We also learn of the strategy employed by our pilgrims in dealing with tour guides, also known as the Fergusons.

I've been re-editing my Mark Twain chapter pages using a new field type module in Drupal, the video embed field. I was not able to get Blip to work but YouTube emulation is provided out of the box. Also, Blip has not generated the kind of traffic I had hoped for. So I'm removing the Blib link and providing only the YouTube link. The videos remain on Blib, however, in case you want to go there to check them out.
