Vint Cerf on Downloadable Video

Vint Cerf, aka the godfather of the net, predicts the end of TV as we know it, saying:

“85% of all video we watch is pre-recorded, so you can set your system to download it all the time,” he said. “You’re still going to need live television for certain things – like news, sporting events and emergencies – but increasingly it is going to be almost like the iPod, where you download content to look at later.”

We’ve been saying that for a long time here at LPF but its nice to get somebody with a demonstrable track record for predicting the future to make the point.

All you need, Cerf says, is fast download speeds like those in Japan.

Coming soon to a Lafayette neighborhood near you.
