A Bit of Love for Current

Nice write-up from Joanne Ostrow in the Denver Post:

Imagine a television network that operates like YouTube but with a social conscience, a programming staff and a crew of professional videographers, journalists and hosts giving it shape.

Imagine it complete with viewer-made commercials.

Lately I’ve been happily distracted by such a network, Current TV. Specializing in short attention spans, airing mini-shows called “pods,” Current TV is designed as always-on cultural background music for the iPod generation the way CNN is a constant for diplomats and editors.

The diplomats and editors will be ours as well.
