I think, for the mainstream audience, they're going to want to watch
the internet like they watch the TV. Like they have been for 50
years. They are most likely going to expect to be force-fed content
with a spoon; they're not going to want to use the energy to go on an
expedition into the unknown, the internet.
So, for us, the pioneers, it doesn't matter all that much. We're
probably all comfortable hiking the mountain. But for the future of
this medium, for all the people content with visiting Mt. Disney, it
may be very pivotal to develope a system to push the content and make
it available on their television at the push of a button.
