Article Title: Zdnet Reports: “Feed Me Bubbe” a Web 2.0 Example

“Web 2.0 is the next generation of the Internet. While the first generation is defined by primarily static websites that were valuable for gathering information or conducting specific transactions (buying a book), Web 2.0 is about social networking (among the most popular is myspace), collaborative content development (wikipedia), and blogs.

At a recent conference in San Diego, ZdNet report Andrew Keen discovered a new show created by Avrom Honig about his grandmother’s cooking. The show is called “Feed Me Bubbe” and features her cooking a variety of her favorite dishes.

This is a great example of older adults online contributing to the Internet’s next generation of content. It confirms the limitless ways that older adults can contribute to expansion and utility of the Internet. Enjoy the cuisine”

Article Title: Feed Me Bubbe At VON
By: Rob Safuto

It has come to our attention that the producers behind the Feed Me Bubbe podcast have been recognized by Network2.TV founder Jeff Pulver at the 2007 Spring Video On The Net (VON) conference in California.

Mr. Pulver was impressed by the Feed Me Bubbe VON contest entry (seen below) and invited the crew to the recent event in California.

What is Feed Me Bubbe? It’s a video podcast about good old Yiddish style cooking. In each show Bubbe teaches a new recipe to her grandson, Avrom. Avrom realizes that when he “needs good kosher food there’s only three words he needs to know…Feed Me Bubbe!”

…”I dug up an eighty year Jewish grandmother from Boston, known on the Internet as Bubbe, who had been schlepped out to California by her twenty-something grandson, Avrom Honig, a Web 2.0 entrepreneur. Bubbe (she wouldn’t give me her real name) is the star of an Internet video cooking show called “Feed Me Bubbe”. Bubbe is evidence of Chris Anderson’s long tail. Get used to her. She’s the old/new pin-up for the democratized media revolution.”

“Andrew Keen: The Bubble bubble

“Nothing else can explain what I witnessed, with my very own eyes, at the San Jose Conventional Center yesterday. There I was, at Jeff Pulver’s VON show, prospecting for interesting young Web 2.0 video companies, and what did I find? I dug up an eighty year Jewish grandmother from Boston, known on the Internet as Bubbe, who had been schlepped out to California by her twenty-something grandson, Avrom Honig, a Web 2.0 entrepreneur. Bubbe (she wouldn’t give me her real name) is the star of an Internet video cooking show called “Feed Me Bubbe”. Bubbe is evidence of Chris Anderson’s long tail. Get used to her. She’s the old/new pin-up for the democratized media revolution.”

It was great meeting both Avrom and Bubbe and spending time with them at the Network2 booth inside the Video on the Net Pavilion on the Spring 2007 VON show floor”

Article Title: Video on the Net: Bubbe Boom
By: Bill Sobel

“I literally walked in the door about an hour ago after a 5 1/2 hour (JetBlue redeye) flight from San Jose after two full days of schmoozing, walking, listening, blogging and stuff like that at the 2007 Video on the Net Conference. I’m still not awake…but when I do I will post my thoughts about the show. In the meantime, Andrew Keen of ZDNet was there and, like me, was looking for the future…and he found it… she’s a 80 year-old grandma from Boston called Bubbe. -Bill

It’s official. The Internet boom is back. It’s the Bubbe bubble.

Nothing else can explain what I witnessed, with my very own eyes, at the San Jose Conventional Center yesterday. There I was, at Jeff Pulver’s VON show, prospecting for interesting young Web 2.0 video companies, and what did I find? I dug up an eighty year Jewish grandmother from Boston, known on the Internet as Bubbe, who had been schlepped out to California by her twenty-something grandson, Avrom Honig, a Web 2.0 entrepreneur. Bubbe (she wouldn’t give me her real name) is the star of an Internet video cooking show called “Feed Me Bubbe”. Bubbe is evidence of Chris Anderson’s long tail. Get used to her. She’s the old/new pin-up for the democratized media revolution.

Avrom Honig, a fast talking young man with a quick smile, sold his bubbe the Internet dream. He convinced Bubbe to let him film her in the kitchen and then broadcast the result on the Internet. So, on “Feed Me Bubbe”, you can watch Bubbe cook her kosher hamburgers, baked fish and, of course, her latkes. Bubbe promised me that her strudel is a particularly big hit. And so, she said, are her sweet and sour meatballs.

I met Bubbe and Avrom Honig at VON’s “Video On The Net” pavilion where “Feed Me Bubbe” was being broadcast — next to Michael Eisner’s VEOH and other mouthwatering Web 2.0 start-ups like VideoEgg. She was there at the invitation of Jeff Pulver (who looks a bit like a latke himself). According to Bubbe, Pulver contributed to flying her and Avrom Honig out to San Jose for the show. In Pulver’s mind at least, she is obviously a poster child for the user-generated-content revolution. I guess that Bubbe and her cooking show proves that any bubbe can be a star on today’s Internet.

So there I was, at San Jose’s cavernous Convention Center, watching “Feed Me Bubbe” on a flat screen monitor. And Bubbe was next me, confiding that her grandkids loved her “Famous Jelly Jammies”. We didn’t get into revenue models or distribution channels or the size of her audience (many many thousands according to Avrom Honig). And I forgot to ask Bubbe about her exit strategy. We were too busy talking about her fried matzo.”
