LR Debuts 2005 Corporate Video

Phil Harvey
12/21/2005

Who else but Light Reading can put together all the essential ingredients of a proper corporate video?

Light Reading's 2005 corporate video has it all: acquisition jokes, gloating, strip club one-liners, two charming puppets, and a song you absolutely won't be able to block out, no matter how good your therapist.

This high-quality production debuted in a longer, more copyright-abusive form, at The Light Reading 2005 Telecom Investment Conference last week.

Our other video and news highlights from that week are as follows:



— Phil Harvey, News Editor, Light Reading

Wow. Not much makes me slip off my Aeron into the dust empire below, but this one surely did!

LR's 2005 year end video found me under my corporately approved taiwanese wood semi circular desk, laughing. (You know, the one with the pillar at one end, and the compass in the stock)

LR currently smacks of Ascend/Cascade in your exhuberance over being paid many moolahs by a large, sorta old, Legacy Vendor (of newsprint).

BUT, you guys do it one better. You are still happy, and doing your jobs.

I'll see you at your next web portal when your Rest and Vest 1 year commitment expires.

Cheers!

nice to know you are pleased that some of your readers got a kick out of your corp video. No doubt however there is a sizeable minority of your readers that thought it was self-indulgent crap, utilizing human and management resources that might have been better spent producing something of use to us.

Or are you only interested in viewers that indulge your own self indulgence?

scott, I don't feel like a downer, though no doubt there are plenty of people who would disagree. However, I doubt if anybody who actually works for a living comes to LR just to join a big virtual party. They would come for industry insights, useful threads, decent interviews, and breaking news. And what do you give us? Steve Saunders dancing, and Pat Russo collecting an award. Way to go! Why bother? You claim to have millions of visitors, and how many of them are really likely to get their rocks off watching Mr. S (with or without facial hair) dancing with a bunch of people who just happen to have boobs?

Get real - he / LR may be rich now, but the video is still insulting to most of your viewers, and a gratuitous waste of time. Why not do a decent wrap up documentary of the year? Is it so difficult? You evidently have the cameras, you evidently have the contacts, so why not use both?

maybe you would like to take a poll as to how many of your viewers actually thought it was a decent watch as opposed to something that you **could** have done?

And, in fact, if the website is not done for me, and people like me, then who exactly is its target audience? Steve Saunders "fans"? Can't they just write in and get a signed photo and leave the people who come to you for more normal actiities in relative peace? Be cheaper for you, and more pleasant for the rest of us.
