The weird thing is – the BBC recently announced a deal with YouTube, to host their own channel and make programmes available – but this isn’t available there.
Now, if there was one programme that would be uploaded religiously, surely it would be the flagship technology programme!

Spent most of my weekend here:
Looks like the rest of the week is booked up as well. 🙂
Mark Mulligan, of Jupiter Research, discusses the new BBC iPlayer and it’s ramifications.
” However, where this offering gets really interesting is its commercial aspirations, which are all the more pressing in the context of the reduced funding levels determined by the license fee settlement with the UK government. The BBC plans to cover many of the costs with ad-supported content and paid downloads, which of course takes it head to head with iTunes et al. Just how seriously the competitive alignment will be remains to be seen. But not even considering the download aspect, the iPlayer will once again see the BBC setting a standard which the commercial sector will both complain is a distortion of the market through public sector funding, yet also strive to emulate.”

Really enjoyed reading what Chris had to say.
“It doesn’t matter that Essjay lied to the New Yorker reporter about his credentials, making Wikipedia look good to the media – a matter Wales has known about for weeks. No mention of the dishonesty of using degree falsification to endorse Wikipedia in a letter to a professor. That’s lying to those outside The Family.
But he used his false credentials in content disputes. That’s serious! It’s an IN-WORLD offense! It’s inside The Family. “
“In the byzantine world of Wikipedia, with its arcane language, titles, and rules, Essjay wore the robes of a wizard. He was allowed to stand beside – and to serve – Jimbo the White. Together, they would bring “knowledge” to the unenlightened masses. But then the Wizard Essjay tried to slip through the gates of the real. Now the game is up. “
