(CNN) — I watched the Golden Globes on Sunday night. Live. On TV.
That might sound unremarkable except that I can’t remember the last time I intentionally watched a scheduled show that wasn’t on-demand, at a time of my choosing. I’m part of the generation the TV networks have nightmares about: the generation that’s quite content watching all its media online… Mass media would be eroded by millions of niches, the prophesy read, and big audiences would dissipate.
And yet something curious is happening. Increasingly, as topics begin to bubble up on social networks such as Twitter, television has ceased to be a passive medium. With live commentary from our online contacts, people such as me are increasingly seeking to be part of these mass movements.
We’re wiping the dust off the TV — as I did with the Golden Globes — and looking to be part of this global social event. I didn’t plan to watch the Globes, but as Twitter and Facebook lit up with buzz, I couldn’t help but be drawn in… [Full Story]

Video: World’s largest outdoor LED TV.

The ‘C Seed 201’ is a 201 inch diagonal (5 meters!) backlit monster of a display, which stores away underground in a waterproof shaft. At the press of a finger on the remote control’s fingerprint scanner, the unit rises up and unfolds the screen, which can be rotated up to 270 degrees.

Some reports put the cost of the unit at around half a million Euros, although as the saying goes, “if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it”.
