Thanks to Current TV‘s Twilight Greenaway for dropping me a note on the new network founded by Al Gore. I’d heard the rumblings about Current last year, but never checked them out closely — I like what I see, though. From Twilight’s email:
If you haven’t seen the network yet, you can find it on Direct TV (channel 366) and on Comcast and Time Warner Cable in many markets. (Check out http://www.current.tv for more on availability in your area.) Current has aired everything from hard-hitting enviro-journalism pieces like “Good-Bye Shishmaref,” which chronicles the struggles of native Alaskan villagers soon to be relocated, to “Bio-Skate,” a profile of a company making sustainable skateboards.
At this point, I haven’t started watching and rating (just joined the community on Friday — user name sustainablogger), but I think the idea of community-created programming is very cool. I wonder if some of our more technically-inclined should consider producing a program on the Sustainable Blogosphere (though that would hardly be action-packed). I have Dish network television, so I can’t watch Current right now. Has anyone? What do you think…?
Twilight’s going to send me press materials, so more to come on this…
