Suits

How to get viewers more involved with TV? Read: how do we rescue our business model, which is being convergently disrupted by at least four different technologies? Make programs 'interactive'. Or at least that's the answer the suits have.

I have a better one: make shows people are actually interested in watching. Asking people to press a few buttons isn't 'interactivity' - interactivity is deep simulation. Not to mention the fact that ABC's effort is only accessible by people with XP Media Center PC's. Technology isn't a necessary condition for innovation - but understanding your business model is.
