China's Innovation Moment--And NBC Blocks Us From Watching It Live.by
I’m having a strange sense of displacement. A momentus event is taking place in China that most of the world is watching live but I can’t because a legacy network has paid lots of money to stop Americans from accessing the event over the internet on their computer screens until it shows it at night on TV screens. Yikes. I want to scream—NBC, the world doesn’t work this way anymore!
The nbcolympics.com site is good. But not great. It would be better if it had much more audience participation.
