Dartmouth Women Rule Online Video Journalism!

I’m in San Francisco.  I saw my old pal Om "GigaOm" Malik last night.  I met Om’s associate Liz Gannes, who is the editor of GigOm’s latest spin-off NewTeeVee, the blog about the online video revolution.  Turns out that Liz is a Dartmouth ’04 grad and Beet.TV’s editor Kate Lyon is an ’05.  These Dartmouth grads are rocking the new media space!


Here’s Beet.TV’s Kate Lyon with Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes at a shoot this summer at Stanford
