We don’t foresee the good folks at Buzzfeed taking on pro AV news anytime soon (if you don’t know what Buzzfeed is, perhaps this isn’t the article for you, but click here just to be sure).
Sure, sometimes they talk about technology, but for the most part, it’s consumer tech; not anything of significance to the AV industry.
But while you can’t expect one of the most popular websites on the internet to cover matrix switchers and AV over IP, maybe you SHOULD expect us, a Pro AV News website, to cover things from the point of view of Buzzfeed’s biggest readership market: young people.
After all, you could argue that the Pro AV industry’s biggest problem is that people under 30 aren’t really in touch with commercial tech, despite them having just the right skill sets for it, generally.
So we thought we’d take a cue from Buzzfeed and turn some of our own AV industry headlines into Buzzfeed-style headlines.
Yes, it’s silly, and no, we’re not seriously suggesting that we do this on-the-reg; or even that Millennials and Gen-Z’ers would follow us if we did. These takes on pro AV news are done with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
