Television was not about technology

An interesting episode on the “Future of the Internet” on this weeks, “By Design” on Radio National.

Featuring a discussion with Genevieve Bell, whom we met last year at the AFTRS Consumer Forum.

Bell contends that technologies that end up being the most successful are those that have “been the most transparent to local content”.

With Television it wasn’t the technology that was important , it was the fact you could get stories that meant something to you in your own language…. so the obvious next step for the web is that all the languages that make up the complexity of the world start to get represented

Bell also has some interesting points to make on participation and bandwidth.
