Is this a crock, or what?
Pseudotainment claims to be online tv, but DotComGuy
has better quality than this. The audio isn't as choppy as the video, but it's a sad state of affairs when the best we can do with all this technology can't even compete with local cable access programming.

Finally, someone giving one or more fingers to Toronto's tightarsed, outdated nouveaux-médias
hiring practices. How would you
like to be on call 24 hours a day
as an interactive-TV manager for the Weather Network way the fork out in Mississauga? Lila Feng
worship isn't enough of a payoff, kids.

Ursula K. LeGuin's "The Lathe of Heaven"
is being offered to local PBS stations in the month of June. It hasn't been broadcast in about 20 years. VHS tape and DVD due out in September. Both KQED (San Francisco) and KRCB (Rohnert Park-Cotati, CA) aren't going to broadcast it. I guess Suze Orman needs the airtime...

there's a link between today's television programming and promiscuity in teenagers. I'd say its because overly-censored American tv is so boring that most teenagers would prefer to have sex rather than watch that crap.

Adventures in Consumer Stalking: Interactive TV
"Broadcasters and advertisers, meanwhile, have long been eager to fire up interactive services, because they can know more about who is watching (and doing) what, and what consumers are buying. Targeted advertising with better response rates has long been a goal in the television industry."

iCraveTV is streaming free, live network television
feeds using RealNetworks software, and the big guys are steamed. The broadcasters are citing copyright infringement, but the guy running iCraveTV, William Craig, says he's perfectly legal. I think it's pretty ballsy, but legal? Apparently, since he's 'casting from Toronto, Canadian cable laws allow the retransmission of broadcast signals sans the licensing fees, as long as the signal doesn't get altered.

Any red-blooded American who has taken high school chemistry in the last fifteen years or so, or any red-blooded American who watchs public television, has heard of the august Professor Roald Hoffmann
and his World of Chemistry
television series. Professor Hoffmann does theoretical chemistry at Cornell, and is a damn cool guy.
