Exploding TV (continued)
I've talked about some of this in my prior Exploding TV posts. (I wish TypePad supported a better way to link to multiple posts on the same topic).
The near term impact of this stuff, particularly Google's efforts, is going to be felt by the companies who are already staking out this territory for business information services, companies like Critical Mention, ShadowTV, and others.
Longer term, however, I think this may well be how we watch TV. Check out John Battelle's futuristic vision on this one. It's coming, and not so far fetched as it might seem.
