This site was originally intended to focus on the disrupting of traditional broadcast TV when AT&T introduced U-verse.
As U-verse became a mainstream offering, I scaled back on my coverage, and shifted to covering the G.hn standard at Everywire.com
When 3Screens meant the TV, the desktop and the cell phone.
Something has changed. Or rather, lots has changed.
1. Consuming, sharing and creating content may not always involve the big screen - as in your TV.
2. When I started this blog, the 3rd screen was my cell phone. No, it was not a smart phone. It was a pretty crappy cell phone from Motorola or Nokia. Even when I shifted to using a BlackBerry, you really could not consume rich media as we can today.
3. The iPhone. I don't need to pontificate further.
Be it the iPhone or any Android smart phone, the fact of the matter is that my smartphone is now a viable option for watching broadcast TV.
Oh... when I say "broadcast TV," it's not the kind that comes from the major networks.
It's stuff like watching a special event like TechCrunch Disrupt, Jeff Pulver's #140Conf events (which I work with Jeff on) or a great show like Kevin Pollak's Chat Show, or my Sunday ritual of watching Leo Laporte's Twit - This Week in Technology.
Think of it as a satellite truck in a box. You connect the Tricaster to a free service like Ustream.tv and then, you're broadcasting on three screens - where you can watch and engage with amazing content on your computer, your smart phone or your tablet.
I am not here to displell any dire predictions of the death of network TV. I still like watching and viewing moviews and certain shows, in HD, on the big screen.
I'm finding my own personal tastes changing and evolving as better quality content that is not on traditional TV is certainly coming into its own.
