On Tuesday, YouTube’s (GOOG) “head of monetization,” Shashi Seth, left the Googleplex to become chief revenue officer for a company called Cooliris. Seth had been been in charge of developing the now-ubiquitous overlay ads that YouTube started placing on partner videos last year.
Today, NewTeeVee reports Seth has joined the board of advisors of a video company even tougher to ‘monetise’ that YouTube: live streamer Ustream. Tough job, but he’s in powerful company. Also an advisor to Ustream: retired General Wesley Clark.
