Five Questions for Kevin Rose

Posted by: Helen Walters on March 10, 2009

kevin_rose.jpgShort notice, I know, but Digg’s Kevin Rose is coming in to see my colleague Doug Macmillan (@dmac1) tomorrow morning. They’ll be recording a separate video interview discussing Kevin’s work at and plans for Revision3, the Internet television niche network he co-founded in 2005, but I thought we should open the floor for your questions, too. Got something you want to ask Kevin? Ask away.

With the recent addition of the CO-OP show to Rev3, the programming has finally included a sorely-missed genre (gaming specific). Are there other programming genres that Rev 3 is looking to expand into? (Because if needed, I'm a snappy dresser and have a witty personality. Just kidding.)

Are there any plans to restore the credibility of Digg in terms of collectively determining the value of content? I'm tired of people asking for Digg Love knowing that the rankings may not truly represent the masses - just the collaboration of a select few. As a result, I don't utilize Digg for sharing and discovery as much as I used to.

Over the past few months, Revision 3 has seriously changed direction including cancellation of shows like Epic Fu, WineLibrary and some others. Instead of these well produced videos, there has been a move instead to have user contributed shows.
A similar trend seems to be underway with Podshow/Mevio and Next New Networks dropping shows like
Are we seeing the start of the collapse of Podcast networks?
What do you envision for the future of quality video content for Revision 3?

What goes into the decisions surrounding distribution channels? Why one site vs. Another?

What are the revenue models OTHER THAN advertising that Web 2.0 companies like Digg should be exploring?

Thanks, all, for the great questions. Kevin just left the building so this thread is now closed. I'll post the video in a separate post on the NEXT blog as soon as it's ready -- and add the link in a later comment here, too.
