Which are you more concerned about – seizing an opportunity, or “selling out?”
|Ryanne (above) and Jay have
signed a deal with PodTech
and will blog on sustainable culture
Ryanne and Jay, who I met in Dharamsala, India, in October this year, and whose “hearts of gold” were so obvious from the beginning (they just stepped up and volunteered to help our students learn how to shoot and share video without hardly being asked), have just “sold” the rights to their video podcasts to PodTech. You can see that there was definitely some discussion about the commercialism of selling to a “channel” that carries advertising, and all that…
You should view the video in which they discuss this event! Personally, I don’t mind commercialism too much at all if the side-effect is that people who has something to say about sustainable culture then get to spread that message. (Though I’m a total TiVo-ite and I have perfectly timed my fingers to get thru the ads without viewing them, and I don’t have enough experience to have much of an opinion on the pre-pended video ads that are now cropping up.)
