How Occupy is An Opportunity for Video Streaming Services

BY Nick Judd | Monday, December 12 2011

The New York Times' Jen Preston looks at how video streaming services are getting renewed interest after Occupy Wall Street.

From an interview with Max Haot, a founder and chief executive of Livestream:

“The point that everyone missed was that people are not watching live streaming the way they watch a four-minute video on YouTube,” said Mr. Haot, whose New York-based company now has about 120 employees around the world. “They are watching so that they can be there and connect with an event.”
