Blip.tv co-founder and COO Dina Kaplan has no shortage of energy. She's a five-three or so bottle of Jolt Cola, shaken up and gushing forth about her company, which is proud to host the unboomed Amanda Congdon's cross-country video tour, AmandaAcrossAmerica, (sponsored by AAA?).

Of course, we're guessing Dina got that spunk during her brief stint as a Kentuckian. She tells me she was a TV reporter at WAVE3 News in Louisville for three years (Louisville, by the way, is only really in Kentucky on Derby Day - we don't care much for red birds and figure them Louisvillians can just be Hoosiers the rest of the time).

We caught up with Dina at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo to chat with her about her company. Blip.tv bills itself on its webpage as a video-sharing site. But it's no YouTube, says Kaplan. Blip.tv hosts web video shows, not just "one-off" amateur videos, and helps promote and monetize them.

"You should have to worry about creativity. We'll take care of the servers, the software, the workflow, the advertising and the distribution," reads the About blip.tv page.

Kaplan also said the company just signed a deal with Akimbo to make Blip.tv content available on television through its remote-controlled, Internet-connected RCA Akimbo Player. Sounds like the Internet on your TV is pretty much here.

Unfortunately, Dina just informed me, Amanda Congdon blew straight by Kentucky while we were in California. Too bad for Amanda. Kentucky is only like the most beautiful dang-ol' place in the world! And we can prove it. Stop and smell the goldenrod, it'll be worth your while.
