Under-reported stories # 1

Forgive my tardiness in posting. The last few posts got "lost in the ether" as I seemed to have a bug in my blog account. (It's a don't find out until *after* you do all of the work that your post will "crash")

So, this will be brief but there is definately more to come in the next few days.

Here's a little story from 2005 that has some interesting relevance in today's world.

My idea for the *new* Canadian Television Fund

(or, why I'll never become a politician)

I've got an idea! Why not let the broadcasters create their own funds like they want to do so badly. Let Shaw & Videotron put up their own money to finance production and own the rights (in other words: buy) and let them distribute the programs over the airwaves that they control. Fantastic.


Let's keep the CTF and make it 100% Canadian tax-payer owned, for the "Canadian" part of the Television Fund. Let's divert all war-bound money towards the creation of good story-telling as told by Canadians.

Just kidding...

TV gets closer to the computer

Apple does NOT have the market cornered on video content convergence. Slingbox is taking TV to your computer...not the other way around.
