SXSW was insane. At my Future 15 presentation, I had the stage between Ben Relles, YouTube’s Next New Networks founder, and Evan Spiridellis, Jib Jab Founder, and focused my talk on counting clicks for conversion and capitalizing on the moment of monetization.  But I didn’t shock the monkey until I called out a prediction that […]


I had a chance to talk with David Kohl of VEVO at CTIA’s Billboard Mobile Entertainment Live! today about their development slate of original programming, live events and syndication partners and he had much exciting news to share.  VEVO is now clocking 60 million monthly uniques across its distributed network since having launched last December, […]


#VidCon Rocks!

12Jul10

It was an all-out SXSW/Comic-Con/w00tfest mashup complete with ball pit, karaoke room, and hugs from YouTubers and their favorite stars. Collectively the audiences of these vloggers rival that of the major tv/cable networks with Ryan Higa at the top with 500+ million views and nearly 2.5 million subscribers. And as much power as that implies, […]


TV of Tomorrow has to be one of the most productive industry shows around.  Not only was the staging cinematically breathtaking but there was as much drama offstage in the dealmaking.  If I wasn’t assigned to do ten SXSW band interviews for Spinner over the next few days I could easily post nine thousand words […]


#CES and #NATPE kicked off the year with keen insights into ubiquitous connectivity and content. Awashed in fantastical visions, the theme of imaginative wonder, optimism and excitement permeated the events marking the awakening of a magical many-to-many era. Enter SyFy’s House of Imagination and Alcatel-Lucent’s LTE world – rich, frictionless space for magical personal experiences.  Car as platform, toaster […]


The lemon drops and quesadillas kept coming as my table traded  success stories of getting premium content onto OTT platforms.   It was an exciting kick off to NATPE 2010 as guests from all around the world started to filter into the opening night party sponsored by SXSW.  And it was only fitting to have Rick […]


With Midem, Sundance, and Grammy’s, January is still bubbling over with places to go, people to see, but the one stop shop for premium professional content is at the NATPE Market next week at Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip, where on the floor, in suites, and on panels programming executives, brand managers, and showrunners […]


Fresh from SXSW, RIP:  A Remix Manifesto reflects the power of documentary as a force for social change, and screening it as part of the Anti-Corp Film Fest in SF, a city more densely populated with doc filmmakers than anywhere in the world and home of EFF, is particularly fitting.   The film’s message is […]


March is not over by a long shot.  As many are just now starting to enjoy MIPTV and CTIA (with daily blogging/video from Al Gore, Billy Crystal, EQAL, Endemol, ZillionTV, and everyone in between) and others are getting ready for the upfronts and NAB, below is the month in review for events that just passed. Engage Expo […]
