Time for a new series: 21 Thoughts on Video Streaming in 2021!
What's the deal?
- First, I reached out to video industry insiders, and asked them about their hot take on video streaming in 2021.
- Second, I shared (their) 21 nuggets of wisdom on LinkedIn. (Join the conversation!)
- Third, each week, I share my feedback on their take (as a new blog post). These posts provide context for the OTT newcomer (or non-tech reader).
