Many of us know Daisy Whitney as one of the sharpest observers of the online video scene, having written for many years for Television Week, and now contributing to VideoNuze and Beet.TV and others. 

She also consults, does TV appearances and programs high profile events like last week’s ad:tech in New York.

If that isn’t enough, she  is now a published author, with teen novel The Mockingbirds published last week by Little Brown.

We caught up with her at her Manhattan book party on Thursday evening for this brief chat.

Daisy, congratulations — hope the book is a big success.
