Making Money on the Internet (cont.)

Video blogging is hot. Robert Scoble is leaving Microsoft for (whose servers are so overloaded they can’t even load a homepage).
And then, he mentions this:

Yesterday I was talking with Amanda Congdon, one of the co-founders of Rocketboom. Her videoblog is now seeing about 300,000 viewers a day. That’s, what, a year or so old? Did you know that advertisers are now paying her $85,000 per week? That’s almost as much money as I made in an entire year of working at Microsoft.

Rocketboom is pretty idiosyncratic—if they can make $85K a week, lots of other people can too.
