CNET recently launched BNET, an informational portal for managers and small business owners. There’s content from the staff and external sources including Harvard Online.

A big part of BNET is its video offering.  CNET is creating video in-house and working with various partners and is committing considerable resources to video  content, I am told.

Here is Rafat Ali’s interview with CNET CEO Neil Ashe. Neil  is enthusiastic about the new business channel. He was a panelist at the paidContent conference earlier this week in Manhattan.

At the conference, I met Greg Mason, who heads business media at CNET and is responsible for BNET.  He shared the premise of BNET and plans to incorporate a great deal of video.
