    At the Web 2.0 Expo in New York City last week I met up with Eileen Gittins, the CEO and Founder of Blurb, the creative book publishing platform. We originally covered Blurb, a place where anyone can create and publish their own books, essentially becoming their own authors, last October.

    At the conference she spoke on a panel about “Building a People-Powered Products Company” along with Richard Moross, founder of Moo, and Michael Galpert, founder of Aviary.

    Eileen was kind enough to sit down with me and talk about what exactly “people-powered products” are and how they are revolutionizing the business world. She even convinced me to turn my blog into a book someday!

    A special thanks to Sony for letting me use their amazing TG1 HD camcorder, without which none of the Web 2.0 Expo videos would have been possible. You can watch the video via the embed below or download the MP4 directly.
