VenetianPrincess is a star on YouTube and an innovator. Her next project is a great example of how abundance is changing the world.
Venetian Princess is a pretty and very talented woman who makes movies and music videos, some for songs she writes and performs. Her channel has Subscribers: 25,271 and Channel Views: 1,117,782 as of today. She is the start of most of the movies she makes, using green screen chroma keying. Her movies are released in segments, much like a TV mini-series. This format is a great match for the way people watch video online plus it lends itself to business models that work with freely available content.
She is very talented at editing and makes dreamy eye catching videos with lots of special effects as well as some very funny stuff, watch the an episode of Princess Chronicles
She garnered some extra attention by poking fun at Obama Girl in a parody called “I Got A Crush On…. Giuliani” None of what she does would have been possible 10 years ago and it would have been difficult 5 years ago.
Low cost, easy to use tools makes it possible for her to be a one woman movie studio. But since those same tools are available to her audience they can participate. I don’t mean leaving comments or even just posting their own videos. She is asking her fans to contribute video for her to use to create a music video. Her co star will be digitally editing into the scene to interact with her. She can star in a video with someone she’s never met.
This remote working environment makes things possible that never would have been before. Its both Long Tail and Free, which are all parts of abundance and made possible through innovation.
Do you work, purchase, or consume anything? If so this new understanding of Abundance effects you.

In 2000 I began a project to change the world. My partner in this project was The Shad0w, contributor to the BitTorrent protocol and creator of BitTornado program. Napster and other peer-to-peer file sharing systems were in full swing and BitTorrent was just starting to catch on. At that point we realized that it was impossible to stop people from copying information. Music, movies, books, or software programs are all just information. Any information can be digitized. Once digitized copies are basically free. But we also realized that if people weren’t paid to make new information the world would stagnate. The entire legal system of intellectual property was based on restricting copies and now that was impossible.
While Shadow worked on BitTorrent and other technologies I worked on business models for this new world we were entering. I began researching, doing experiments and reexamining everything I knew about information. The result of that were several profound discoveries. One of them was a completely different way of looking at economics.
