Kara Visits Beet.TV's Andy Plesser!

When I was in Manhattan recently, I made a lovely visit to the world HQ of Andy Plesser’s Beet.TV, where we discussed where online video is going.

As some know, this is a big topic for BoomTown this year because the Web is clearly becoming a video-heavy medium.

And the ever-affable Plesser does a solid job covering it. This past week, for example, he looked into everything from the Web sites of the Presidential candidates to Reuters’s (TRI) video reporting of the escalating fighting in the South Ossetian town of Megvrekisi to a Canadian video-sharing site.

Of course, he does a lot of video about it all.

Here is my video interview with him and below it is a video he did with me in New York about the AllThingsD and D empire, right when I was doing the video of him (logrolling in our time!):
