You spend all year reading about what we think, so when it came time to look ahead to 2008, we thought it would be nice to hand over the mic. To get the conversation started, we’ve asked a short set of questions about the near-term future of online video to a selection of experts from around the industry.

We’ll be posting a couple of our questions each day, followed by responses from our panel. We know we didn’t include every perspective, or even an accurate sample, so we’d love for you to add your own take on each topic in the comments. If a few more experts stop drinking eggnog and start replying to our emails (no pressure!), we’ll add their forecasts as soon as we get them.

Thanks to our prediction panel (where possible, we included the latest video we could find of the panelist above his or her name):John Cioffi, Hitachi America professor of engineering at Stanford (DSL soothsayer)

Richard de Silva, general partner at Highland Capital (investor in Metacafe)

Zadi Diaz and Steve Woolf, Smashface Productions (creators of EPIC-FU)

Henry Jenkins, director of the MIT Comparative Media Studies Program and Peter de Florez Professor of Humanities (media and popular culture academic)George Kliavkoff, chief digital officer, NBC Universal (former interim Hulu CEO and leader of other NBC tech projects)

Kevin Nalty, “self-proclaimed viral video genius” (a.k.a. Nalts from YouTube)

George Ruiz, head of new media at International Creative Management (online video talent agent)

Shashi Seth, head of monetization at YouTube (manages YouTube’s advertising products)

Max Silvestri, Gabe and Max’s Internet Thing (web video comedian)
