Welcome to Porn Valley

| 1 Comment

"60 Minutes" on Sunday is doing a double-length segment on the $10-billion pornography business, and apparently the Steve Kroft piece will spend a lot of time here in the Valley -- and include insights from Luke Ford. Wonder if it will mention the latest porn-connected start-up, Fleshbot, a blog launched by Nick Denton and the team behind Gawker in New York just in time for the Paris Hilton sex tape to hit the Net.

(Franklin Avenue notes the double-segment on porn is just in time for the November ratings sweeps...)
