YouTube Sensation Turns Life Over to Internet Community for a Year
SAN FRANCISCO – July 12, 2010 – Revision3, the leading Internet Television network, today announced a deal with Dan Brown as the host of their new program, Dan 3.0, debuting Monday, August 2. Dan, best known for his instructional YouTube video on how to solve a Rubik’s cube, is taking direction from his loyal fan base allowing viewers to determine his every day decisions.
For the next year, Dan will solicit opinions from online fans about his daily activities, from what he will wear to his living arrangements. Audiences will vote and submit tasks for Dan to complete using a new and innovative community decision engine on Revision3.com. Users develop ideas and directly interact with each other to determine the content of the show. Dan will execute the most popular ideas on Dan 3.0 with new episodes of the program available everyday at Revision3.com/Dan30 and via downloads 24/7.
“I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me this year,” said Dan Brown. “I’ve always taken my audience’s opinions and ideas seriously, but this level of interaction should really take things to the next level.”
“Dan has proven that he can successfully connect with online viewers with over 55 million views on his YouTube videos,” said Ryan Vance, vice president of programming and production, Revision3. “It’s a revolutionary concept for his viewers, that they are not only able to watch his movements, but dictate them as well.”
