About Evolvetv | evolvetv.tv
An internet only news show..
From the about page:
EvolveTV is born out of a frustration with the media landscape. When CNN is more painful to watch than Fox (after all - Fox is entertainment, not news), there quite simply must be a market for an alternative. Our mission statement is pretty simple:
We don’t care about missing blonde women or Hollywood lifestyles. We think sharks are mostly harmless and we have no interest in watching sporting events. We believe solutions emerge from our judicious study of discernible reality.

Google Video, thoughts..
Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates The Pilot - Google Video
Google video has the full premeire episode of Everybody Hates Chris for a limited time. I would love to see the stats for this one.
In any case, this is the first time I have really checked out Google Video since it launched. I am not so sure about the Flash based video, I find the playback performance a bit weak compared to QuickTime and Real on my Powerbook. I am impressed by the random feature but not really by the content. I find enough standard TV fare on TV, I don't need it on the internet as well. It is for this reason, that unless I need to look something up, I will turn to Ourmedia.org, Yahoo Video, Current.TV and MeFeedia for my online video watching pleasure.

Prodigem creates BitTorrent API (seems to be a web service API for BitTorrent)
Prodigem API - TorrentocracyWiki
From the site:
The Prodigem API is an interface for programmers to gain access into the Prodigem Bit Torrent Hosting Service. It allows the possibility of designing new Prodigem interfaces and making Prodigem a part of other services (eg. blogging tools, content management systems). Imagine the power of a "Help, I've been slashdotted!" button in any web management tool.
