Today marks the first day of PubCon Las Vegas 2006, and the event promises to help attendees "get the edge." The conference will run through Friday, and speakers will offer their insights on topics ranging from specific things like search and net marketing to "general webmastery."
Bad is the new good. That seems to be the consensus of a handful of media executives trying to wrap their minds around this Web video thing. Where’s the control? How do we monetize it? When did low quality become high quality? How do you connect cheese to a carburetor?
If you’re establishing and promoting a video blog (vlog), then there are a few key people to talk to about it. One of those is Rocketboom’s Andrew Baron.

Veoh CEO Dmitry Shapiro seems as philosophical as his title is poetic. Speaking at the Video on the Net Conference in Boston, an extension of VON, Shapiro begins with the printing press and ends with “democratized Internet television.” In due course of course, this changes everything.
Chuq says he’s not an Apple employee when he blogs. I think that’s a very dangerous position to take.
