Welcome to the future of TV: Joost
Even if I don't really care for the shows they have right now, I love the glimpse into the future I get when I used them. It took me some time to get an invitation, until I typed in Google yesterday: "joost invitation" and saw a page by Joost and GigaOm and found unlimited invitations.
This is the starting of a new TV era, this is the TV we'll all be watching a few years from now the most. Really interactive TV on demand with real time community interaction. Hopefully in the future it'll run out of the web or a standard client app. I don't appreciate the download which also requires installing DirectX 9c but it was still worth trying. I'm not sure it works worldwide ...
