    NEW YORK, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Google's Official Video Blog profiled
 the work of Beet.TV and provided a sample clip along with a five star
     The Google Video Blog celebrates the "creativity" of its many
 contributors who upload video. Beet.TV uses Google as a tool to upload and
 publish video.
     According to the Google citation:
     "Beet.TV, the self-styled 'root of the media revolution,' is shaking
 things up. With all that's changing in the world of online media, you can
 count on beet to be covering it."
     Beet.TV covers online video, social networking and their implications
 for society and business. Launched in late March, it is published daily by
 Plesser Holland, a boutique public relations firm with offices in New York
 and Washington, D.C.
     It is among the very first "business-to-business" video blogs --
 meaning a video blog that covers only a particular industry sector. The
 publisher is also creating video blogs for other companies and
 institutions, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and
 Fordham University.
     Last month, Beet.TV was honored as "site of the day" by TypePad, the
 software company that hosts Beet.TV and millions of other blogs.
     Another industry accolade came earlier this week in a profile in Sam
 Whitemore's Media Survey, an essential tech public relations resource:

 bite-sized video interviews with Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, YouTube
 co-founder Chad Hurley, Rocketboom co-founder Andrew Baron, analysts
 Charlene Li and Esther Dyson, and journalists Steven Levy, Dan Farber,
 David Carr, Tom Foremski, Rafat Ali, Mary Jo Foley, Larry Walsh, Len Apcar
 and Patrick Houston?
     "Of course you would, which is why you should check out, a
 video blog produced by a nice guy named Andy Plesser. A former San
 Francisco rock concert promoter and CBS-TV associate producer, Plesser by
 day is a principal at Plesser Holland Associates, a Manhattan-based PR firm
 specializing in representing media brands (CNET Networks, Salon and PR Week
 among them). His agency also represents non-media clients, such as ING
