Vint Cerf, aka the godfather of the net, predicts the end of TV as we know it

Vint Cerf’s address at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival gets coverage in a number of UK media outlets. The talk covered a range of technology issues including the future of television. With 85% of all video pre-recorded, Cerf said the time is coming where content apart from news, emergencies and special events (eg, sport) will be downloaded for watching at the consumer’s leisure. Recent concerns about the increase of downloading video via the web bringing down the internet were dismissed as “scare tactics” and that “We’re far from exhausting the capacity.”
