I've never met Scott, have no relationship to him, in fact until today never heard of him.
Web Video 101 . Scott has published a simple compilation called "The Future of Web Video" that anyone interested in video on the web - producing, distributing, selling, advertising - should go out and buy, especially because as an e-book, it only costs 15 bucks. Don't expect brilliant insights; utility is its raison d'etre.
Scott writes that "the launch of YouTube, like the first demonstrations of cinema and television before it, marked a new era in creating and distributing moving images. This third era – the Web video era – is creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and independent content producers, and presenting new challenges to the media companies and advertisers who have thrived in the businesses of cinema and television."
Released on November 22, 2006, it is timely as only an ebook can be, full of facts, indispensable when you need to sound smart, a reference for all the key players and stats, quick read, and fun. So don't walk. Run.
