Mogulus: The Revolution Will Be Televised

Imagine having your own live 24/7 television station on the Web. It's a dream that was impossible for most Web developers/producers. Not anymore. NY based startup Mogulus just did a beta launch in late May, and has already spawned 700 new "stations". Rapper Gil Scott Heron used to say "the revolution will not be televised..." Gil didn't envision Mogulus. Founder Max Haot is defying conventional (Joost) wisdom that everyone wants "video on demand stations" and not the "linear model" of live TV.

With Mogulus, you can blend your webcam, video clips from YouTube, and your own original content into your own unique TV program - and you call all the shots. When you’re not broadcasting live, turn on the auto-pilot and let it drive your playlist.

Haot wowed everyone at the NY Tech Meetup two wks ago with his demo. I spent two hours with him yesterday at their headquarters and can say "I have seen the future...."

Bruni PR will be pitching this exciting new startup to key reporters in the coming wks.
