Video As the New “lingua franca” of Online Content

If video is in fact the new common launguage of online content, as reported by serial conference-attendee, and social media gadfly Jeff Jarvis, then I qualify as a lifelong linguist. I’ve been speaking video, daily, for nearly 18 years, the last ten, as a network news cameraman for NBC, based in Washington, DC. jimcbssmall.jpg But as anyone with even a passing interest in media understands, the media world is changing faster than most of us can follow. An entire generation of pioneers is building the future of television. These new “micro media moguls” of small TV are folks who have just decided to go out make TV… why? Because they CAN. Anyone can really, which is really immensely cool or downright scary depending on what side of the growth curve you’re on.

So as I make my finaly preps to fly out to San Jose tomorrow for the Video on the Net conference, i’m truly excited about connecting with the folks building the future of television. Conference organizers Jeff Pulver and Chris Brogan have lined up a great list of speakers, but i’m really interested in meeting people like me, who sense real opportunity to create content, build community, share ideas and build business.

    The new site looks great–congratulations! Have a wonderful time at VON. You’ll be in hog heaven (as we say here in Texas) being among all the cool video people. I’d love to meet Jeff Pulver and Chris Brogan myself – and I’m not even a video type.
