NewTeeVee in Print! Here’s Our Book Excerpt

Last year I had the opportunity to author a chapter in an academic book called Television Goes Digital. It just came out and I have permission to share with you the text of my chapter in its entirety.
Though our blogger birthright is to pish-posh at the printed word, I’ve never been published in a book before so I was pretty excited. The chapter includes goodies like a comparative chart of funding and traffic for the long list of online video portal startups. If it seems a little outdated (not a single mention of Fred!), just remember I wrote this a full 10 months ago. Here it is: “YouTube Changes Everything: The Online Video Revolution.”

Ze, Buckley and Homestar Runner Tell All

Ze Frank made the best money he’s ever made on his web video series theshow. You won’t see Homestar Runner-branded pillows and sleeping bags anytime soon. Michael Buckley hates taking the weekend off.
Read these and many other interesting first-person tidbits from artists who’ve cultivated audiences and communities online in reporter and blogger Scott Kirsner’s new book, Fans, Friends & Followers. Kirsner made up a special excerpt for NewTeeVee readers that includes sections from Frank, Buckley, and Homestar Runner co-creator Mike Chapman. We’ve embedded it below.
