Interview with AfterTV

Ever wonder how I ended up doing what I do? Andrew Keen got me to open up in this interview, if you've got the inclination. I enjoyed speaking with him. I did the interview a few months ago so some of the references and stats are a bit dated….

One thought on “Interview with AfterTV”

  1. The one flaw in this interview was the lack of specifics about why exactly Wired, failing in late 2000, and did not reinvent itself.

    The general statement that IDG did allow the restructuring in a way that would have allowed it to continue, is not precise enough and frustrating to the reader.

    ( BTW:
    They misspelled your name on the mp3 file (batelle) )

    Overall, it was a good and rare audio interview. Good information about Federated Media’s many verticals.

    It would be great – however- if Federated Media and Battellemedia would make its various blog traffic stats public.

    So many top Web 2.0 blogs are doing it today:
