Venrock, the venture capital arm of the Rockefeller family, has been investing in online video start-ups, recently participating in a round with TurnHere, the Emeryville-based video services company.

Yesterday at the AlwaysOn conference in Boston, Kara Swisher moderated a panel.  Luckily for us, she did some reporting and video news gathering, which we have posted above.  Kara used her trusty Flip — it works amazing well for a device that sells for under $200.  Wow.

Venrock’s David Beisel told Kara in this video interview that he is quite enthusiastic about online video and says "we’re still in the early stages." That is sure great to hear these days.

(More big news today on the VC front with live video platform uStream raising $11 million, NewTeeVee reports.)

The image you see on the video player is that of ScanScout founder Waikit Lau who was also at the conference and interviewed by Kara.

Congrats to Tony Perkins and the crew at AlwaysOn for another great event.  Sorry to miss this one, but we will definitely be at in Hollywood in June and Palo Alto in July.
