Al Gore unveils his new TV network, called "Current." Gore: "Were starting something new and were trying to bring about a change in the way the television medium is used. We know its hard, but were excited about trying." Read this brief Reuters story and tell me if you understand what it all means. I actually dont get it: videos shown, some as long 15 minutes (wow!), somehow tied in to Google, etc.
Gore: "We are about empowering this generation of young people in their 20s, the 18-34 population, to engage in a dialogue of democracy and to tell their stories about whats going in their lives in the dominant media of our time." Thats helpful. Whatever it is, it starts on August 1st. Cant wait.
