At the Digital Hollywood Forum this week, analyst Will Richmond conducted a panel on Web video with an array of executives on the front lines. Two themes were danger and opportunity
: Opportunity: Web video is changing the game for everyone from tech companies to print publishers, and change is going to accelerate. Danger: People can't find what they want on the Web when they search for video. Opportunity: Web video can be a more dynamic medium than TV. Danger: Cable operators aren't being quick enough to enable users to watch Web video on their living room sets. Opportunity: A writers strike in Hollywood may unleash a creative boom in Web video as unemployed scribes take to the medium.
