Meta, Money and Michael Scott

November 9th, 2007 by Alex

Gosh, isn’t alliteration fun? I think so.

Anyway, if you’re into Internet video, there’s really only one news story that mattered this week, the Hollywood writer’s strike, because a lot of the issues that led to the strike come down to the Internet and the question of how studios and networks will use the series of tubes to make money — and how they will not pay the writers any of said money. And of course the ironic thing is that the writers have then been putting videos of themselves striking up on the Internet. For free. (Writers are a weird bunch.) Here’s one of those videos, with some of the writers/cast of The Office talking about their experiences creating Internet-only content for NBC.
