ValleyWag: YouTube "Waste It" and Revver "Taste It"
Nice news from ValleyWag. YouTube's a "Waste It" and Revver is a "Taste It." Read more on the Revver blog.
So here's the deal. Revver's always nice. Each one of 'em. They won't slam YouTube, they won't even compare themself.
But I'm not a Revver employee. I'm just some clown with a couple blogs about online video. So I can say it.
Revver has a sustainable business model. YouTube doesn't. What YouTube has is the lion's share of the online video traffic, and white hot media buzz.
YouTube's bubble needs to pop, so we can get on with the next generation of online video. The longer this puffery lasts, the longer it will take for the real businesses to emerge. When they do pop, it will freak the whole online-video market out temporarily. And I want to get that over with. Anyone else?
