Steve Gilmor Killed TV

He put out a great post yesterday, saying that TV and broadcast are dead - aggregated to death.

The irony is that it's because of him, or rather content like his, which can be viewed at anytime from any place, that TV is finally getting strangled like telegraphs did by the telephone industry.

The time and effort it took to send a telegram wasn't as convenient as the ease at which any Joe Smoe could pick up the tele and get Granny Mae.

Note to broadcast execs: Diversify your portfolio now if you don't want to lose your shirts.
