NewTeeVee…One Year Young

Can you believe it? It was exactly a year ago when NewTeeVee launched, with one mission: to chronicle the fast-changing world of online video and peer into the future of television.

A year later, everything has changed, and so much has happened. Writers are fighting the studios over monies made from the Internet, YouTube and Viacom are in the courts, and watching “Casino Royale” on an N95 doesn’t seem so awkward.

Funny — we almost forgot about it today, for it has been a busy day in the world of online video. (Also, Liz’s note on NTV) Chris, Jackson, Janko, Craig, Karina and a whole lot of others have followed Liz’s lead and created a thriving and energetic community, thanks to their meticulous, interesting and well-written posts — about 1,887 of them.

Some members of the original team have left to go on to great things, and to them we say thank you! Joey Wan, though less visible, has played a crucial role in the evolution of NewTeeVee, helping organize our Pier Screenings (four in San Francisco and one in New York) and NewTeeVee Live. Please join me in wishing the NewTeeVee crew a Happy Birthday!

Most importantly, thank you readers! And now back to regular programing.
