Lack Of Intimacy To Kill Traditional TV?

March 1, 2008

Is online video offer a more intimate connection with viewers than traditional television?  Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision 3, home to the huge successes such as DiggNation thinks so:

“When you watch TV, you’re seven feet away and sitting back. But when you watch on your iPod or your laptop, it’s only inches away or you’re holding it in your hands. I wonder whether the intimacy of our handheld devices and computers creates more of a sense of intimacy and sharedness and companionship than just sitting back and watching TV.”

Interesting concept to ponder.  I pulled the quote from an excellent article in the Guardian about the recent online video show trend.
