I have long had this objective in mind and today I connected with a guy who persuaded me that it's past time. He's got my head buzzing with thoughts and words and connections. I found him while browsing, something you did in stores before Netscape came along. I was surfing, something you did with TV channels before the web came along. Now I'm thinking that TV networks have become networked TV. If you have digital cable or any digital connection like satellite or DSL, you're networked to somebody's hardware. You can't get content on demand unless you can both ask and receive and that's a network, boyo.
So, let me introduce you to Brady Gilchrist, a resident as am I of Toronto, Canada. Brady is all digital, all the time. I will link you up to various repositories of information about him before we're done but let's start with a SlideShare presentation he did on the Death of TV.
Not surprisingly, Brady has a website where you can watch him land a plane at Toronto's Island Airport and find out what he does for a living, which in my book is pretty cool. If you're in Toronto and you act fast you can catch him moderating a panel on "What is Broadcast?" on Thursday, January 28th.
