Our friends in Berkeley are having an interesting Cybersalon again today: Life after TV.
Like the video of Steve Colbert saying to the Dems Impeach Bush now or you are wussies. This will have many-fold more viewers on the Internet than on TV, as it is in the top 10 on Reddit for example.
We don't have a TV at home. It is not because we are morally better, it is just that I would watch too much of it. Check out a very funny "What I learned from TV" this American Life radio show to the TV theme.
More details to the Cybersalon:
First they took away the commercials (Tivo). Then they replaced professional actors and scriptwriters with ordinary people trapped on desert islands or interviewing for roles as models and American idols. Soon the rabbit ears will be amputated, phone screens will display pay-per-download videos, and you’ll be able to share home movies and vacation exploits in real time with a small network of family and friends, and even strangers.
What’s there not to like?
