Abstract
It is tempting to predict that the Internet will never be able to support the universal delivery of interactive, high quality, long format video to serve the majority of the population. After all, it would severely stress the capability of the Internet. Further, we enjoy well established television, cable, and recorded video industries that deliver a variety of program material for entertainment, information, and education. These industries continue to evolve to deliver ever-increasing convenience and variety of material. On the other hand, especially given the momentum of the last few years, it is equally tempting to predict that the Internet will subsume all forms video delivery. How do we know where we are on this range of alternatives?
