As you may already know, the founders of Kazaa and Skype, Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis have created another blockbuster. Until recently, the new IPTV service has been referred to as The Venice Project, but now it has come out that it will be called Joost. I’m sure somewhere along the line this was a planned leak, but we’ll play along and act like it was “found.”
Yesterday, we were The Venice Project™. Today, we’re Joost™. Tomorrow, we’re yours! Imagine having infinite choice, and TV that is truly interactive. TV anywhere, anytime…
Just after the news leaked of the name change, The Venice Project’s website changed over to Joost.com’s name servers. We’ve got a couple of beta test invites left, so we’ll pick 2 random commenters below to share with.
