Web 2.0

Library House events always attract an interesting collection of start ups and innovative media companies. Today’s line up is a corker. So far I have heard presentations from our old faves Bebo and interactive TV company Two Way Media.

Perhaps the highlight so far was a presentation by video streaming company Mydeo. Essentially the company provides video hosting for individuals or small business. Users pay a small fee to subscribe. So why would you pay when you use services like YouTube for free?

Well, CEO Cary Marsh argues that they deliver video in much higher quality than YouTube, and perhaps even more importantly provide higher degrees of security for private (i.e. family or corporate) videos. Its an interesting take in a sea of YouTube clones. Good luck to them. They have a close relationship with Microsoft too.
