Rocketboom on Nightline

Hey all,
I was just reading the blog and watching Nightline at the sametime (wow, multitasking!). Anywho, they showed a story on Rocketboom.com (the Vblog that we saw in one of the early lectures). They interviewed the creator and he said that if they put a 15 second commercial at the end of each broadcast they would make 1/4 million a year. He also pointed out that it costs them $25 a day to run the site....

Interesting - US$25 per day doesn't sound that much really, does it? But I guess it has to come from somewhere.

Yeah I saw that too and found it interesting (was going to post a blog on it too but you bet me to it!) - I don't know what's stopping them from putting an ad at the end if they're going to make that much money.
I think they said something like they've only been doing it for 9 months, and have 50,000 viewers logging in? They should make viewers pay $1 to watch it...but that probably wouldn't work. Doesn't seem like they care about money anyway.

Yeah , I saw it too. but I didn't think put it at the end of the program . because they would just turn it off, after the program . probablity the best was to put it in the begin of the show . like most other on-line streaming program . so people would actully view their ads.
