One of Those Days

I spent most of today keeping an eye on the TV coverage of the War. The geek in me was intrigued by the new tech they were using to collect and send back sound and images.

I especially liked Kyra Phillips reporting at 10 frames per seconds from the flight deck of the aircraft carrier Abe Lincoln with F18s taking off and landing over her shoulder.

I wonder if this satellite cell phone, 10 fps video, is going to legitimize web-based, low bandwidth, video feeds.

The whole thing seems to be going surprisingly well. We'll see.
