TreehuggerTV has been a part of the Mefeedia community since April '06 (when they started doing video?), so i am happy to see them move on to "bringing their message to the masses".

We've been seeing this happen quite a bit lately – it is clear that traditional media is tapping into the new media talent to compliment their existing or new programming.
