|What is TV? A collection of transports. A format involving synced picture and sound. An activity.|
TV is what we do on the couch. Computing is what we do at the desk.
What is "taking back"? Opening up distribution. Opening up content creation.
Cable. Lack of standards. Need to cut cable operator into revenue.
Finally we got to the demo. They're building an interactive TV system where it's all open standards and can be downloaded as a package onto an open hardware platform.
I suspect this is waiting for Apple to release more amateur video tools. Anyone can take a photo some people can create music. Almost no-one can create video that's worth watching. It's an order of magnitude harder. But like everything the barriers to entry are dropping.
