King of the Cats

When I get the new web-site put together, it will provide links to the two best tech columnists in the business, Walter Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal and Hiawatha Bray of The Boston Globe. I used to work with Bray and remain a devoted reader of his work. His most recent column concerns the Napsterization of the television business. SnapStream Media's PVC (personal video recorder), which allows you to burn copies of your favorite TV shows on your PC, spells bad news for the television syndication business. Combine it with Tivo and SonicBlue's Replay TV and you have what Bray calls a digital acid bath for the TV industry.
