Private Broadcast Networks

While somewhat self-congratulatory, this is a (perhaps unintentionally) mind-expanding quote from Microsoft’s Bill Gates in a recent Seattle P-I interview:

While discussing employee weblogs, Gates also talked about Microsoft’s Channel 9 site: “A guy just goes around with a digital camera and videos people. … They put that up as a channel and that gets incredible viewership. In fact, sometimes when I do video interviews, I’m talking to an outlet that is well-less-viewed than the video on the Microsoft Web site. I’m always saying, Why doesn’t somebody interview me for that?”
