A Look at New Media Rockstars

The creators of web video cannot wait for Variety and Extra to catch up to the happenings of new media content creators. Yes, every once in a while there will be a mainstream report about a sale of a web video series to a company like Disney or Viacom but you don't get the daily deets about actual performers or the change from independence to an influx of carpetbaggers and (some, not all) opportunists.

Who are the creators? What companies are inserting themselves as middle people? How much money do YouTubers make?

This is where New Media Rockstars (NMR) comes in handy. They interview the people and the changing new media environment. It isn't just about the creators of web video. There are posts about should you go solo or sign with a  network?

Will Yahoo buy DailyMotion? Hmm, this might be an instance where folks wouldn't be all that upset about a purchase. 

I seem to have a lot of questions but then again there is a lot of content to review at the site. And many that is the value of a web site like this; to cut the fluff and talk directly to the people that are hip deep in this ever changing experience.

If you have some time, give it a read.
