Who Needs Public Access TV When You've Got The Web?

from the streaming-TV dept

The NY Times seems to have discovered that amateurs are out there creating internet TV stations, some of which are getting quite popular. Yes, the NY Times is sometimes a bit behind the times, but at least they noticed at some point. Still, it’s worth noting (once again) that what makes the internet so useful isn’t that it’s a broadcast medium, but a two way medium that is letting anyone become a content creator. While the entertainment industry may be afraid of things like TiVo and downloads, they don’t seem to realize that the real competition is coming from creative people who are simply routing around the entire industry.
