The Web and TV, a sibling rivalry

October 1, 2008

This TED talk from Technorati’s Peter Hirshberg on how the relationship between TV and the Web has evolved is fascinating. There’s a lovely piece at the beginning where he interviews a group of ‘tweenies’ about which is more important TV or the web…you can probably guess the answer…There’s also interesting archive footage of Marshall McLuhan talking about the ‘global village’ which, as Hirshberg suggests is eerily contemporary if you substitute blogosphere…

the global village is as big as a planet and as small as a village post office


Every time new media arrives the old media is the content
