neave.tv is an experimental use of video over the web... To watch, you'll need a broadband connection (>1mb) and a fast computer (1GHz or higher).

So much for name recognition. Mighty Big TV, a fairly well-known site that's been mentioned in print media and numerous other outlets, has inexplicably changed it's name to Television Without Pity. Of course, the dynamic aspect of the web allows for such things, but is it wise?
