- All the material in the book was gathered in 2005 and 2006 (the most 
recent info is from November 2006).

- The book is written for independent filmmakers and TV producers who 
want to understand the new options for earning a return for their 
work...advertising and media company executives confronting new 
challenges...and entrepreneurs interested in building businesses around 
Web video.

- The paperback version (first link at left) contains black-and-white 
interior pages, and requires shipping time; eBook version (second link 
at left) contains color pages and can be downloaded immediately. Both 
contain the same content.

To my knowledge, The Future of Web Video is the most comprehensive book 
or research report yet written on the emerging Web video economy. If 
you have any questions about it, feel free to e-mail me at
