Tom Evslin says theat there won’t be vertical search (responding to a Jupiter report): “My prediction is the opposite of Jupiters. The web isnt going to become more like TV. TV is going to become more like the web. The next generation of DVRs with an ability to pull content from anywhere on the web and to serve specialized ads will make TV channels increasingly obsolete. Programs will matter but channels will disappear as an unnecessary vertical construct in a horizontal world.”
Tom has another post on the same topic.
