Been a busy few days. Watching a lot of channel content on Joost and it's open-source competitor of sorts, Miro. I'll have a more detailed review of these stand-alone web TV (IPTV) players. Both are pretty immersive and I've been looking at the current state of web TV content.
I think we're on the cusp of something very big in this space. When I boot up my web TV players and watch the latest from my chosen channel feeds, I get that strange feeling that I've seen something like this before. Oh wait, that's right - the rise of cable TV. I think where we are at now with web TV content and these nascent channels like Mahalo Daily, The Onion News Network (ONN), TEDtv, etc. is like where cable TV was in the 80's. You had the established networks and then these upstart fringe channels shaking things up. We're just getting started here, and it's going to be big.
