As eyeballs continue to shift from TV to streaming online video, it remains doubtful that digital ad dollars will ever rival their analog predecessors. Meanwhile, companies like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube continue to experiment with subscription and advertising models. Brooke sits down with Peter Kafka of All Things Digital, to ask him what the future holds for shows like Mad Men, and for YouTube stars like Ryan Higa.

I enjoyed this broadcast.

I'm uneasy about the implied "glossy professionalism > cheap amateurishness" idea that crops up in this interview. As a fan of Paul Morrissey, John Waters, Julie Dash, and even some of those Youtube Poops the kids were making a few years back, and as a nonfan of glossy soap operas like Game of Thrones (which we call Dungeons & Dragons & Dynasty in our house), I'd like to stick up for the idea that a goofball with a camera, $1000 and a dream can make something that is clunky yet brilliant.
