There has been a lot of reporting of the dispute between Viacom and DirecTV. Since I don’t actually subscribe to DirecTV, I listened with passing interest.

When I read that Viacom deliberately stopped streaming content online in an attempt to thwart DirecTV, it seemed like the media giant was cutting off its nose to spite its face. Moreover, it is a complete disregard to the online viewers. In terms of dollars and cents, I’m sure the fallout is inconsequential but it is just one more example of how traditional media companies view their online counterparts.

I know, be patient. There is a bigger revolution taking place and soon we will no longer have lines between mediums. I guess still sore from how I went from programming paid by advertising to programming I pay for with advertising.
