Last year Loic le Meur of video conversation site, Seesmic interviewed Steve Garfield in this video and there's some great info in it as Steve talks about video blogs he's discovered and how people are making money in online video.
I run into Steve at conferences and trade shows every now and again where he's speaking and I'm always impressed how Steve manages to find the coolest new cutting edge technology faster than anyone else and gets into it like a kid opening presents on Christmas day. Steve's curiosity and boyish charm have served him well on the Internet. As a true leader in Online Video, Steve is also known in the online video community as the nicest guy in Internet Video.
