SES San Jose 2008 gets underway in a week. One of the sessions on Day 1 that may draw a crowd is the one on Video Search Engine Optimization (VSEO).
To give you a sneak preview of the session, Byron Gordon of SEO-PR interviewed Matthew Scheybeler, the CTO of blinkx, who will be one of the speakers. Byron asked Matt about how to classify a video in its many parts to enable more viewers to find the video of their choice.

blinkx has been in the news lately. On Friday, Nathania Johnson reported that "blinkx Seeks to Acquire MIVA for $1.20 Per Share."
In a letter to MIVA CEO Peter Corrao and Chairman Larry Weber, Suranga Chandratillake, the CEO and Founder of blinkx wrote, "blinkx believes that a combination of the two companies would be mutually beneficial to both companies' shareholders, employees, and customers. blinkx and MIVA have complementary businesses that could benefit greatly from blinkx's technology and MIVA's distribution network."
So, in addition to SES San Jose attendees, I suspect that there might be some MIVA shareholders, employees, and customers might want to watch the video interview with Matt to see where he thinks video technology is headed.
