The Biz: SnagFilms Offers Free Streaming Docs

A new venture called SnagFilms is offering a nice library of free streaming documentary films, without any need to download anything. See a MarketWatch story on it here. Traditional media can say what they want about this kind of thing, but the consensus among industry analysts is we'll probably get most of our media content like this within about 10 years. Yeah, there are greater challenges for getting money out of it for us content providers, but I also see it as democratization. Even a TV with a few hundred channels can't compete with the interactivity of the web.
