Who's Watching This Stuff Anyways?

Every time I look at Google Video's Upload Report page, I'm blown away.

In the last 5 months, over 2200 people have watched videos of lectures that I've recorded at San Jose State. And of those viewers, 103 people thought they were good enough on some level to download to their computers.

It's not that they're boring speakers, but I'm sometimes left shaking my head wondering... WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE!?

Seriously though, this is the genius of Web 2.0 - create your own content and let the world market decide if it's worth anything.
Any broadcast student today not creating content should really be thinking about their futures, and if they are, then they're already on Google Video or YouTube and Myspace - and blogging.

There was a good video on Rocketboom the other day with an interview of Micro Persuasion's own Steve Rubel. Rubel talks about the changing media and how advertisers (and journalists) need to view their audience and how they should behave to survive in the Web 2.0 world.

Smart guy, that Rubel...
