cat, exit bag

Well, we had to say something at some point. We’ve been working on this company for a long time now, and starting today, we have some of those simple things like a website and an obligatory press release. So, for those of you who are interested, yes, I have a new job. Really excited about what we’re doing, and if there seems to be a lack of specifics from us what exactly that is, it’s not for lack of thought, it’s because the networks and shows, when they launch, really need to speak for themselves — and there are many more talented people than us involved at this point making them. I’d rather not talk endlessly about what we’re doing, but just let you see it instead and tell me what you think.

In the meantime, my main role on a daily basis is reaching out to all the people who will be creating shows with us and working on our networks, and I hope you’ll get in touch if you’d like to work with us in some way. For all my friends out there creating media on your own — blogging, podcasting, videoblogging or some other word that’s not yet in the dictionary — whom I’ve had countless hours of conversations about the kinds of opportunities that just weren’t out there yet, this company’s in large part a response to that. We’re making some opportunities available that really don’t seem to exist anywhere else in one place — a chance to get regularly paid, to learn and practice, to have access to the tools and resources you need, and maintain creative control of your work. And to make something different than TV, different than a podcast or videoblog — something in-between that’s new, and experimental, and fun.

I’m sorry this blog’s so old and neglected that I don’t even have comments enabled (it involved some particularly nasty spam and a lack of time to upgrade my MT and reblog installs), but I’ll fix that at some point, and there’s an “write me” link on the right if you’d like to email and ask me anything.
