Check out Nerd TV, if you fit the profile

I've just finished downloading and watching the first episode of Nerd TV. It's a pretty cool program, if you're into the history of the Internet and all the cool things that have been happening on it over the last 10 years or so.

The show was put together by Bob Cringely, whom I've talked about here and here before. The show, which is being put together through the good graces of National Public Radio (NPR) in the states, is a pioneering effort to start bringing a new kind of video to the masses. I'm pretty enthused about the whole thing.

You have to download a copy of BitTorrent to download the video and you need a copy of QuickTime to view the final result. But hey, if you're a Nerd (or even just a Geek), none of this will be a problem. And if you're not, you know it...so just enjoy the rest of your day...

Have fun. I'm sure we'll talk more about the implications of all this down the road. For now, I'll let you all decide on your own. But be sure to add your comments after you've watched the first episode...and keep your eyes open for the RSS feed when it appears.

Oh...one more thing. And this is really funny.

Remember when Janet Jackson had her "wardrobe malfunction"? You know how crazy the TV networks in the States have been since then about any "inappropriate" material getting past their censors?

Well...check out what happened on the TV show Rockstars the other day...it's a hoot! (And be sure to follow the Dick Cheney link for a bit more in the same vein.)
