This sounds awesome and basically what I was talking about earlier today except it will be done by the consumer… not the broadcast networks.

Sounds highly disruptive, and easy to use. I can’t wait. Hat Tip Boing Boing

Announcing a new platform for internet television and video. Anyone can broadcast full-screen video to thousands of people at virtually no cost, using BitTorrent technology. Viewers get intuitive, elegant software to subscribe to channels, watch video, and organize their video library. The project is non-profit, open source, and built on open standards. Today we’re announcing the project and releasing our current sourcecode. The software is launching in June. [Participatory Culture Foundation]
