BC: I think it depends on the direction the Internet goes with things like net neutrality. Certainly as the Internet expands and access to high-speed connections expands, people will start demanding information from the source, not filtered by the media.
IW: Do you worry that people are primarily interested in being entertained rather than informed?
BC: I do, but that’s mostly because people don’t know we’re here. I can look on Google analytics and see that in November we had 21,000 visits to our Web site, and over 100,000 video downloads. Now it’s Dec. 19, and we’ve had almost 16,000 visits, almost as many as in all of November. In October, we had just 6,000. I think that people aren’t really watching much video on the Internet yet. The video blogging community sees it as a big explosion, but in real terms, its not that big a deal. Our success will depend on our ability to get straight to broadcast at some point -- to make the Internet become TV and TV become the Internet in a way that hasn’t happened yet.
