Katherine Boehret's Video Debut on AllThingsD.com With Walt Mossberg Directing


In case you missed it, Katherine Boehret–one of our fine tech columnists on this site and also in The Wall Street Journal and pictured here–debuted a video yesterday, using the same kind of Flip video camera I do for my video posts on BoomTown.

She was testing for her regular Mossberg Solution column a new version of the device, which she liked in her post here.
