Television's New Frontier

J.D. Lasica calls it Edge TV:
The other day on the Darknet blog I commented about Steve Levy's piece in Newsweek about the future of television, something I go into in great deal in Darknet. I call it Edge TV rather than IPTV (which refers to the distribution mechanism), on-demand TV (which refers to consumers' behavior) or file-serve television (the techie name for it), because Edge TV refers to the true revolutionary change in our video diet: this is television being created at the edges.

"'Already there is more data downloaded for video over the Internet than there is for music,' says Mike Ramsay, cofounder of TiVo. 'What happens when a 14-year-old creates a BitTorrent browser that's easy to use and plugs right into your TV? You go from 500 channels to 50 million channels.' We soon may find out, as a number of open-source-inspired Internet efforts hope to open the floodgates. 'We have tools to let anyone make high-quality videos to reach millions of people,' says Tiffiniy Cheng of the Participatory Culture Foundation in Worcester, Mass. 'We'll give a channel to anyone who wants a channel.'"
I'm creating the content and putting it on all the channels.

Just waiting to get my first email from someone who's seen my video content on a TV...
