Streaming Media magazine and Streamingmedia.com has announced the third annual Streaming Media All-Star team, a list made up of some of the most innovative, influential, and important players in the online video arena. The Streaming Media All-Stars are people who do their part to advance, evangelize, and expand online video and audio – unsung heroes, visionaries and industry veterans.
Last year, I was honored to be recognized as a 2009 Streaming Media All-Star, and I want to congratulate this year's 2010 team – who are both familiar faces and friends in the online video community.
If you're a fan of ReelSEO, Klessblog or other online video blogs than you'll recognize the players on this year's roster, which we're delighted to announce that our very own Founder and Publisher, Mark Robertson is one of The 2010 Streaming Media All-Stars.
Streaming Media Editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen noted:
The third annual Streaming Media All-Star team is made people who've done the most over the years to advance both new technologies and sustainable business models, as well as those who time and time again have given back by educating newcomers inside the industry and evangelizing about online video to those outside it.
As always, though, we selected the team members based not only on their personal successes, which speak for themselves, but also for their commitment to sharing what they've learned with others. If there's one common thread that ties all of them together, it's that online video isn't just a vocation for any of them; it's a calling, and one they want to share with as many people as possible.
Here's the 2010 Streaming Media All-Stars Team:

Each All-Star was asked a few questions about their backgrounds, proudest achievements and online trends.
Mark had this to say about online video trends:
Companies of all sizes are rapidly moving to incorporate online video into their interactive initiatives. I believe that some of this adoption can be attributed to the novelty and excitement that surrounds the medium. As the novelty subsides, it will be even more important for our industry to establish and define metrics for success so as to help businesses justify and expand their investments into online video.
