This month’s guest is Wiz Nordberg. Kevin and Wiz will be discussing the growing relationship between broadcasting and virtual environments and what this means in the light of increasingly mobile communications where the market is as much a producer of video content as it is a consumer.
Wiz Nordberg is the founder and CEO of Treet TV, http://treet.tv (formerly known as SLCN), the world’s first virtual television network of entertainment and lifestyle programs. SLCN started streaming live events from Second Life in March of 2007 and now as Treet TV continues to cover live high-profile events for Linden Lab and others.
In the physical world, Wiz is a software engineer and serial entrepreneur who has years of experience in the tech sector and venture funded start-ups.
