HDTV Progress Report and HDTV Links

I am teaching a course on emerging new media focusing on interactive television and other emerging new media. This week we will examing the current status of HDTV in the United States. Because HDTV, like iTV, is a fluid topic, the links to content that is regularly updated will be the best way to use this post today and in the coming months.

I beg, plead and cajole my students to use the new research tools available to them. These include:

  1. commununity bulletin boards specifically on HDTV

  2. Podcasts you can listen to while folding laundry (or actually in your iPod)

  3. Newsgroups now owned by Google and lumped into groups.google.com
