I'm going to be talking about the rise of the Internet over television as the dominant medium
(despite getting only 1% of the advertising) with the BBC
as part of a "discussion seminar", going in my role as one of the people "that are at the forefront of technology behaving in a way that is currently niche" -- in particular, the fact that I don't watch TV anymore, I just download shows that interest me. This behaviour is of particular interest to TV companies, although unlike the rest, the BBC doesn't stand to lose any money by becoming irrelevant.
It's at lunchtime tomorrow. I'll try to blog about it, but apparently we will have to sign some sort of NDA (which sounds very interesting... what are they planning that they don't want people talking about?) so I'll have to see what I can and cannot say.
Former participants in the discussion on freedom of information are welcome to bat me about the head for willingly signing an NDA. But a free lunch is involved!
