Andy Plesser: "The DNA of AOL is to Put a Video on Every Story," Ran Harnevo

AOL is registering rapid growth in video views, now ranked second to YouTube in monthly views according to comScore, thanks in large part to the editorial “DNA” of putting videos in nearly all stories, says Ran Harnevo, SVP for Video at AOL, in this interview with Beet.TV recorded at the Digitas NewFront event. He says that video views of AOL videos on its properties have increased tenfold in eighteen months. He explains how Huffington Post editors pull videos into each story directly through the publisher’s CMS. In this wide-ranging interview, Harnevo speaks about the strategy at AOL around its new slate of shows, alliances with Nielsen, Mediaocean and FreeWheel and the opportunities for publishers to monetize Web video.

Steve Rosenbaum: Ny Tech Rising: NewFronts, Startups, & Virtual Office Hours

Last week New York emerged as the clear leader in the emerging world of web-based television. With back to back events from all of the major web properties, and lots of new and emerging companies, the Digital NewFronts have clearly taken the web video world’s leadership position.

LOOK: Customer Cancels Pizza Pick Up For Hilarious Reason

The latest hilarious receipt to go viral comes to The Huffington Post courtesy of Vancouver’s rabid hockey fans (and Reddit .) A picture of the receipt, posted to the r/funny subreddit Saturday by BrandiBean , apparently shows what happens in Canada when a hockey game gets too close to call. The receipt, originally for one large pizza for pick-up with extra chicken, was cancelled out and turned into a delivery because “canucks have tied game, customer cannot leave house to pickup.” While hockey is Canada’s national sport, Vancouver Canucks fans are known for being particularly intense. In 2011, a group of Canucks fans drove hundreds of miles to San Jose for Game Four of the Western Conference Finals. As retold by Deadspin, the buddies watched the game and drank a few too many shots of tequila with the team’s owner. The team has also sold out more than 408 consecutive games , the longest current sellout streak in the National Hockey League, according to Bleacher Report. The fan that ordered this particular large pizza, however, was ultimately not rewarded for his devotion to the game

David K. Levine: Googazon: The Web 3.0

Will the next Richard Stallman, Linus Torvalds or Jimmy Wales please step forward? Because I don’t want information at my fingertips — I want action at my fingertips, and I mean my fingertips. The Web 2.0 is all about the big providers: Google, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay, Paypal. They gift us with search and services, they make available products, they enable us to get in touch with our friends. And while they face competition, they operate for their benefit not ours

You’re Probably A Tax Cheat If You Shop Online

WASHINGTON (AP) — Buy anything on the Internet lately without paying sales tax? In all but a few states, you’re probably a tax cheat. That’s right, even if Internet retailers don’t collect sales tax at the time of the purchase, you’re required by law to pay it in 45 states and the District of Columbia. Here’s the problem for states: hardly anyone pays the tax, and there’s not much states can do about it.

COOL: Computer Giant’s ‘Star Trek’ Tribute Is SUPER Tiny

By: Miriam Kramer Published: 05/03/2013 10:06 AM EDT on SPACE.com The nanophysicists working at IBM appear to be Trekkies. In honor of the iconic science fiction franchise’s latest film ” Star Trek: Into Darkness ” — set for release on May 17 — IBM has unveiled amazing new photos crafted from the microscopic movements of single carbon atoms. “Scientists used a microscope the size of a room to maneuver single atoms to form the shapes of the Enterprise, the Vulcan salute, the Star Trek logo, a U.S.S. Enterprise the height of a single nanometer, and an animation of the Star Trek logo,” IBM officials said in a statement.

Marriage Rates Are Increasing For A Surprising Reason

Overall marriage rates in the U.S. have been steadily declining over the last several decades. But new research from the University of Montreal suggests that the rate may actually be increasing for some groups because of one key factor: internet access. According to the report, published last month by the Social Science Research Network , the marriage rate among 21 to 30-year-old Caucasians has increased steadily since 1990 in areas where broadband internet access has become readily available at home. The report indicates that marriage rates increased by between 0.9 and 2.2 percent between 1990 and 2005 in states where broadband internet use increased. Among African Americans, the marriage rate increased by between 1.2 and 2.4 percent from 1990 to 2005
