Mark Cuban on Internet TV, Etc.

Mark Cuban has several new articles on his blog that are worth reading.

The first one is on the future of TV on the Internet - a subject I'm very interested in. He believes one day the Internet will be they way we watch TV, but not anytime soon. Why? Because of bandwidth...

Another good piece is on Digital Rights Management (i.e. copy protection such as Apple uses with iTunes, etc.). He actually suggests cracking the DRM and making back-ups of the files so they will play in the future...

Now I'm going to try and dry out for a while. If you've seen the news over the past day or so (or if you live in north Texas - Dallas specifically) we got drenched in rain. I got trapped over by White Rock Lake in east Dallas and couldn't get home. All the low lying areas were flooded. Cars were swamped. Some places had up to 7 or 8 feet of water. At least one lady drowned.

I ended up spending about 2 hours sitting in a Chilli's waiting out the storm (and the rain really never stopped until today). The drive home after that wasn't so bad - but of course I had increased my courage with 3 scooners of beer. :)

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
