When I finally caught up with Mika Salmi last week, he shared a great anecdote about an encounter with YouTube boss Chad Hurley.
I typed it up as a blog entry but just before pushing the “post” button, I decided instead to use it in today’s column looking at the evolution of online video.
Maybe I’m too old school. I could have posted the anecdote, then used it again as a column. But that doesn’t feel right, especially since the column has a lot more readers than the blog.
On the other hand, the blog always needs fresh, strong material. What goes where and when is an ongoing question as we explore different ways to provide both online and offline news. It’s a little inside baseball, but I’d love to hear feedback and suggestions about the approaches I’m taking here.
