Predicting TV’s demise

Vint Cerf muses about the end of TV. Hat tip to Tim for pointing the way.

Here’s an excerpt:
“In Japan you can already download an hour’s worth of video in 16 seconds,” he said. “And we’re starting to see ways of mixing information together … imagine if you could pause a TV programme and use your mouse to click on different items on the screen and find out more about them.”

Interesting times indeed.
