My friends Mark and Robbie work for startup Maven Networks, which just recently emerged from stealth mode. They're building a cool video delivery platform. As their advisor and director Jeremy Allaire puts it:
Maven has inverted our current experience of video on the Internet — rather than a postage stamp in a webpage, it's a video screen with web element overlays. Video has deep, immersive value and emotional impact, and until now, it's been difficult to experience that online.
The Boston Globe also wrote about the announcement. They've built some cool software. Take a look.
