Michael Arrington was surprisingly witty while talking to PodTech vlogger Robert Scoble at this week's Video on the Net conference. The TechCrunch blog founder, whom we'd usually call anything but funny, cleverly deconstructed Scoble's business plan:

"How much does it cost you [in bandwidth charges] every time you play a video?"

"A few cents."

"And how much do you make on every video?"

"It's not directly linked. My sponsor Seagate paid me before I had any viewers."

"So ideally, you make a lot of money and no one watches you."
