Hello all, I'm an entrepreneur in NYC that has recently secured funding for my broadband media startup. Our product/network will enable anyone to broadcast DVD quality video over the Internet to an unlimited number of viewers at no cost. I'm particularly passionate about helping video bloggers and independent content producers to get their visual stories to the world by entirely bypassing the bureaucracy of traditional offline distribution channels and the technical, quality and cost limitations of streaming video online. I believe strongly that if you give the world a free, easy-to-use self-publishing tool for securely distributing (and even monetizing) video online, it would ignite the minds and imagination of thousands of creative people around the world that would otherwise never have their content seen by anyone outside of their immediate circle of friends and family. While most of the content would be relevant only to their producer and perhaps close friends (much like text-based blogs) I believe there are hidden gems out there that the masses would eagerly and loyally consume if they could easily find it, `subscribe' to it, and watch it (instantly, clearly and full screen) on their IP-enabled device of choice, whenever they want. Our business plan is counting on it and I would love your help to validate some of our thinking and product concepts. Just the fact that we were able to secure funding from a major VC with video blogging as a central premise is a testament to the rapid growth and industry recognition of this dynamic new community which you are leading. Peter and Jay I'd love to get together sometime to discuss our concepts and your thoughts. How does another long walk in the park sound? Looking forward to the ongoing discussions and making history together! Yaron
