Current TV

So the new channel Current launched recently, and I’m curious what Pingers think of the idea. The concept is that videos are created by viewers and sent in for airing on television. Every video is called a “pod”, and can run the gamut, but the idea is that people can report on what’s interesting to them.

Today’s schedule includes a segment on the life of a pizza delivery guy, the Challenger disaster, and genocide in Sudan.

I haven’t seen Current, but I’d definitely give it a try. Of course, it probably isn’t up to the high journalistic standards set by the Ping.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
