Bram Cohen on P2P TV

A great post from Chris Anderson (The Long Tail) about his encounter with Bram Cohen (inventor of Bittorrent) at FOO camp ("Friends of O'Reilly") this weekend. The topic: P2P TV.


Cuban on how the NYTimes spins...

This is a pretty cool post from Mark on how what he said in an email interveiw was spun by Andrew Ross Sorkin, business reporter for the NY Times.
The 5th Estate indeed.

Link to Cuban's post and text of the email interview (which includes a link to to the NY Times pubished article.

Reminds me of the Sesame Street segment:
"One of these things is not like the other" :-)
