Take a risk TV
I know that TV companies are afraid of putting their content on the Web and hate it when their content shows up on sites like YouTube, but do you think that they will ever use the Web to try out new content? For example, instead of airing a show's two-hour pilot on Sunday like a certain network (FOX), then airing the next episode on the following Monday, and then canceling it, do you think that they will just put up the first three or four episodes on sites like YouTube to see if the audience is interested in a show before they spend their money and ad space? I'm sure that YouTube would give then their own channel and YouTube already has the infrastructure to track how many people viewed the show.


CFL and pizza (not Canadian football)
Just thought I'd point out that here in South Africa, there have been some recent issues with the power grid, and as a result, the government teamed up with one of the biggest pizza chains to distribute CFL replacement bulbs.

When you called in your order, they would ask you if you wanted to swap any incandescent bulbs for CFLs, and the delivery guy would bring you free CFLs. Cool!
