Brain Buster Daily Life Geek Stuff

Year of Living Digitally

Paul Colligan has a blog called Year of Living Digitally and I’m calling it a Brain Buster. I stretched my mind last weekend downloading an HD movie to my Xbox 360 and Paul emailed that he’s using an XBox at the heart of his home media center.

But get this: he’s making his family go cold turkey. For this year they are only going to consume media via the internet (and stay legal too! Don’t do drugs! Stay in School!). Think about it – no cable bill, no Tivo subscription, no appointment media.

The crazy part – even though it’s bleeding edge I think that after they climb the learning curve they’ll have no interest in going back. Could you do this? I know I could.

I’m already thinking that I probably won’t go back to appointment media. As I type this, I’m watching Cranky Geeks on my TV wondering why I didn’t do this way back when.

Tomorrow we’ll watch tonight’s The Office, with no commericials, in DVD quality.

We’re not missing much and only gaining knowledge on what happens when the middleman dies.

Thanks for the LinkLuv.
