NBC will stream the Nightly News online. Ho-hum.
You know what I really want to download? Charlie Rose. That show gets people that just don’t show up anywhere else on TV: Tonight, for instance, it’s a U.N. Under-Secretary-General and Anne Rice. (Not at the same time.) Yesterday was a huge roundable about bird flu and Ray Kurzweil. That’s good stuff!
But the thing is, I am never, ever in the mood to watch it at 11:00 at night. And more to the point, the interviews have a great shelf-life — as evidenced by the fact that they dig them out of the archive to play on TV all the time. It would be so great to have random access to all the interviews anytime.
