Steven Levy and Mark Pesce on the future of television. Oh and Conan O'brien! :D [via]

I liked Conan's use of Moore's law:
To begin, the trend toward larger and larger televisions will continue as screens double in size every 18 months. Televisions will eventually grow so large that families will be forced to watch TV from outside their homes, peering in through the window. Random wolf attacks will make viewing more dangerous.

Mark Pesce? That's the guy that gave us VRML right? He was right on the money there...

Nostalgia shows like VH1's "I Love the '80s" and "I Love the '90s" will be forced to multiply, resulting in the smash hit "I Love That Thing That Happened Five Minutes Ago."

You know, I sware to god, I was watching VH1 the other day and the actualy had a show where they recapped two seasons of America's Next Top Model. All the highlights. I mean, what the fuck?

VH1 is horrible. I think they play music videos in the early morning now, but I'm not sure.

When I started collage MTV played music videos during the non-prime-time hours, now they just do re-runs of their reality shows 24/7. Even in the middle of the night. They don't even play videos on TRL anymore (only about 45 seconds of each video, interuppted by people's comments).

Anyway. Viacom sucks.
