The history of online video

Very interesting overview of the rise of online video, especially as relates to journalism.

Coinciding with the election of 2004 was the prevalence of broadband speeds, and with half of American homes reaching better than dial-up transfer rates, along with all the noise created by the blogs and pundits of the internet, an audience was born, capable and accustomed to online payments (i.e. market potential) and finally able to watch video, on demand by the masses.

..and now we can watch tv online, both episodes from network television as well as original programming.
