Up All Night With The Computer Nerds

UP ALL NIGHT WITH THE COMPUTER NERDS

Who'd watch a 24-hour cable-television network devoted entirely to computers? A group of entrepreneurs figures that there are some 10 million techno-enthusiasts out there who just might. And with 500 channels of interactive TV on the horizon, they figure now's the right time to launch an all-computer channel. Called C/Net, it is expected to begin in the first quarter of next year as a series of programs on the CNBC business news and talk-show channel. Later, if all goes well, the programs could show up on a dedicated station.

Funded in part by advertising, the New York-based C/Net will feature everything from panel discussions on new technology to industry news and profiles of computer celebrities. Eventually, viewers may even be able to shop for hardware and software and participate in electronic polls with a flick of their remote controls. EDITED BY PAUL M. ENG
