And Speaking of Convergences: Live TV Channels on Google

Last post I talked about how the blogosphere and social networks have been colliding and that 2007 will be a year when the gaming world and MMOs will incorporate social networking in a big way. Another huge convergence that's been happening all the while is that of the television and the Internet, to the point where the meaning of "TV" is rapidly changing.

Case in point: now you can add a widget to your Google home page that pipes in live TV updates from networks like CNN.

It's no wonder that the music industry is crumbling and that Viacom is suing Google for $1 billion for alleged copyright infringement on YouTube. The old establishment of entertainment and content distribution is dying, fueled by technology and innovation and a public that increasingly demands that it should consume the content it wants anywhere, anyplace, any time.

Picked up on the Google widget story on Micro Persuasion.
