Zach reminded me of something I've said to a lot of creative people I know... there's going to be big demand in short video ad spots for the web. The explosion of video on the web is going to drive the need for video advertising, and repurposed 30 sec TV spots aren't going to cut it. If I were going to start a non-tech business, it would be a video ad creation firm.
I invest in seed and pre-seed NYC startups at Brooklyn Bridge Ventures. Native Brooklynite, 14x triathlete, 4x 70.3, 4x marathoner, softball player, hockey goalie.

PR people, do not pitch me to cover your story, as this is my personal blog. I'm not a journalist.
