Textually watches the fall of big media

I just found out about Textually and I have already added it to my feed reader. The blog aims to follow how new media is being used for entertainment while it erodes an old business model based on an outdated idea of content and intellectual property.

WatchingTV Online will be following YouTube and the new way of watching video and TV on the Internet, it’s impact on the Television industry and will explore the new generation of TV series, focusing on their impact on society – in the US and around the world.

The blog author of textually is on vacation until Aug 19.
