You may have missed these, but they’re interesting. Shows where money is and isn’t. But current flawed or productive models may not be indicative of future ones. It’s 1999 all over again.
1) Decline of advertising, and increase in spending of content. True. More money now in sponsored videos than ads around your videos. And it’s a buyer’s market for marketers.

2) Quote of the week (via LATimes) on the rise of Twitter and other non-profitable but popular web 2.0 thingies: Sony Corp. Chief Executive Howard Stringer may have had the best quip of the day. Asked about the success of Twitter and other social networking sites, Stringer said: “A lot of people are doing very well at making very little money. It’s not a club I’m looking to join.”
3) YouTube video creators quit day jobs to make moolah (Atlanta’s MyFox).
