It was great to see Om Malik earlier this month in San Francisco at the world headquarters of GigaOM, the increasingly influential blog about technology.   

I’ve known Om Malik for nearly 10 years through his work at Forbes, Red Herring and Business 2.0.  He has been covering broadband as deeply as anyone. He thinks it’s pretty cool that the promise made by Cisco in 1996 of a fast Internet has become a reality. 

He says the next big revolution in video will happen next year when the broadband connection speed increases in the U.S.  He notes that high quality online video consumption is on the rise in countries with faster connectivity, such as France, Korea and Japan.

For all of us following innovations in this online video space, I suggest you subscribe to Om’s latest offshoot NewTeeVee

Congrats Om, on a great year —  leaving Business 2.0 and making GigaOM a such successful and influential business.
