We ran into Amber MacArthur at the Vloggercon confab last weekend. Her tech background, creativity, and super-appealing personality have made her one of the most successful “stars” in online video. The engaging Canadian has very cool video blog about Toronto, tech and other subjects: CommandN.TV. She is also a co-host with Leo Laporte of the "Call for Help" show.

Far from simply a TV personality, Amber’s been involved with content creation from the beginning, and shares some really valuable insight into the evolution of the media and offers her suggestions to would be vloggers on how to get started in the business.


This is a cool Vloggercon “paparazzi shot” of Amber and Andrew Baron, co-founder of Rocketboom.

Here’s another favorite photo from Vloggercon, this one taken by ZDNet’s Dan Farber, of Robert Scoble, his son Patrick and yours truly. Dan captioned me in his post as "news breaker" — that’s cool with me!
