  • Networks Blocking Google TV -- the networks are carrying over their old distribution models: someone aggregates eyeballs and pays them for access. In their world view, Google TV is just another cable company. They're doubling down on this wholesale model, pulling out of Hulu and generally avoiding dealing with the people who ultimately watch their shows except through ad-filled shows on their corporate sites.

    If you're reading news, watching videos, or playing games online, you're probably relying on MySQL to do so.

     

    Facebook, YouTube, BBC News, Zynga, thePlatform and many other leading Media & Entertainment organizations chose MySQL to power their online news, gaming, social networking, advertising or other applications.

In any case, I think this guy bears watching.
