Current TV responds to my post... well, sorta.

Dan Gillmor recently made a post about my recent entry regarding Current TVs new submission policy. Robin Sloan over at Current TV has decided to respond to Gillmor's post and indirectly respond to my original post via the Current Blog.

Well, the way that is put does sound reasonable, as long as there was no emphasis on the "currentness" of the submissions. In other words if you want to join their team you have to jump through their hoops, but if they don't accept a video you send in and it is related to a changing, "current" situation, no one gets to see your work, including people reading your blog. Not allowing people to put things on their blog seems really a different issue than "commercial" venues.

I still find it disconcerting that they don't enable their comments on their "blog". So I will post my comment here: In the post Robin discusses a plan to create a Current venue for those pesky citizen journalists that don't fit the pod programs, a special boxcar on the "Current Express" if you will, but there is already a worldwide Independent Media Center for that - and I can host my vids on their site and put it on my blog too. I turn to the internet for my news anyway. Why would anybody want to get tangled up into their restrictive user agreement? That's so "mainstream".
