Converge with like-minded people on the web during TV simulcasts

24-7-global and the Disintermediation of Space & Time

In 1994, within an episode of the show, you would have heard, "You've got to be 24x7-global which means you are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every where in the world. How? It's called the Internet."

Then in 1995 and in many episodes throughout the years, we have said that " and time are being disintermediated."

Most people raised their eyebrows, asking "Huh? Disinter.... what?"

Essentially broadcast television is being disintermediated by the web. It is not the only option to have many people see and hear the same thing at the same time from many different locations.

HiDef to the desktops is here today (Fiber Optic networks are being installed everywhere; Verizon is leading the way). With the aggregation of a few more years of broadcast-quality shows, there could readily be a 24-hour small business channel where every episode is simulcast through very high-quality streaming video on the web.

So, why TV? We see every broadcast as a scheduling event for the collaboration activities that follow the broadcast. Of course, with video-on-demand rolling out within every cable station, all would want to carry this show that brings them viewers. Now the show become the "MarketWatch" for Private Business with hundreds of scheduled events throughout the week.

There are several initiatives for private equity groups to diversify within the best of small business. These shows and selection process gives these investors some of the transparency they require. Here we begin to approach "Mission Accomplished." The good are rewarded; and as a culture, we turn our back to the bad.

We always invite our viewers'  COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS and we invite the same from you. Your feedback is very important.
