34. The presentation is glib and slick.....


...with a modicum of truthiness in it. It seemed to me to be designed for urbanites who've never grown anything before and therefore would be hard-pressed to gauge the truthfulness of the statements made therein. Howcast.com is a New York based media company that doesn't grow any food. They sell information for people. Including corporations. Always consider the source.

- These folks ain't no farmers.....

The Management Team
Jason Liebman, Co-Founder & CEO

In 2007, Jason Liebman cofounded Howcast with the goal of creating the largest—and highest quality—library of how-to videos on the web, providing users with the answer to almost any question, whenever, wherever they need to know how. Jason is also a cofounder of movements.org, a nonprofit organization that helps young people to effect nonviolent change around the world using 21st-century tools.

Before Howcast, Jason worked at Google on the YouTube, Google Video, and AdSense teams. Prior to Google, Jason was Executive Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Applied Semantics before it was acquired by Google in 2003—one of the largest acquisitions in Google's history. Jason began his career at Credit Suisse as an investment banker. A New York City native, Jason graduated from Duke University.

Alex Ellerson, COO & General Counsel

Alex Ellerson oversees operations at Howcast and is also the company's counsel. Prior to joining Howcast, Alex was the Head of Entertainment and Premium Content Partnerships for Google Video and YouTube. Before joining Google, Alex was the Senior Director of Business Development for Yahoo! Search. During his 7-year tenure at Yahoo!, Alex also held positions as the General Manager of Yahoo! Health and Director of Business Development for Yahoo!'s media group.

Earlier in his career, Alex was the COO and general counsel of CMJ until its acquisition in 1999. He was also an associate at the law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore and a law clerk to The Honorable Amalya L. Kearse (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit).

Alex holds a JD from the Columbia University School of Law and graduated from Swarthmore College with a degree in English literature. He also serves as a member of the Programming Committee of the N.Y. Chapter of the U.S. Copyright Society.

Darlene is responsible for helping to find talented experts, filmmakers, and other creatives who make the vision of cool short-form videos a reality.

Before cofounding Howcast, Darlene produced short-form animated content at Nickelodeon and worked on the first season of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the show that changed the face of Bravo. She began her career in New York's independent film industry, working on a variety of feature films, TV shows, and commercials.
