Web geek diva temptress Shira Lazar has found the secret to making money with web video.
Really, is there anything more lucrative than YouTube videos? Well maybe with a little bit of web cred alchemy. The launch today of the I AM A GEEK! video on YouTube may have just found the elusive answer to getting viewers to part with their hard-earned dollars. The video is a call to action for support Room to Read, a global non-profit building literacy in the developing world.
The video, which was launched this morning along with the new Society for Geek Advancement site, features a number of social media and web scenesters: Steve Wozniak, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Pollak, Wil Wheaton, Levar Burton, Jason Calacanis, Samm Levine, Felicia Day, Kevin Rose, Alex Albrecht, Leo Laporte, IJustine, David Karp, Brian Solis, Veronica Belmont, Sarah Lacy, Pete Cashmore, Randi Zuckerberg, Ton Hsieh, Gary Vaynerchuk, Jonathan Coulton, Kevin Pereira, Tay Zonday, Shaq, Julia Allison, Julia Roy, Marina Orlova and of course Shira Lazar.
Tubefilter is hosting the GeekOut launch party tonight at the W Hotel in Westwood, which is already shaping up to be a who’s who of the LA web, tech and web tv scene. A limited number of free tickets to the event are still available and an optional donation to Room to Read is definitely encouraged.
