We are huge fans of the Washington Post's innovative use of online video. The paper has been on the forefront of the industry's use of online video.
One of the most celebrated series has been OnBeing, a series of simple, three minute profiles of non-celebrities with interesting stories, simply shot.
The series has just been launched with an unusual, interactive element, allowing viewers to post comments within a graphic interface.
The series has been nominated for an Emmy. Maybe Jen will win it this time. David, my low key video producer here at Beet, is really bowled over, thinking Pulitzer here
Prize or not, this is very innovative work and the Post continues to lead our industry.
Here's a Q&A with Jen in New York magazine back in 2007.
Speaking of video reporting using Skype, Oprah is using it in a big way.
