The Screen Savers... reunited

While the death of TechTV, and especially the The Screen Savers, is really sad as hell, it's really cool that several of the alumni from the show have come together to record an audio program. Leo Laporte announced the first show and you can download that MP3 show. He's also on with Patrick Norton, Kevin Rose and Robert Heron.

It's a really interesting show to listen to, especially the parts where they talk about working in TV and the old days.

This is pretty free-form stuff (although Leo sounds like he's using compression). It's so great that they get together to do this stuff. I hope it lasts. The biggest issue is that for the moment this is not something that they can monetize. Let's face it, this is cool and interesting, but they do need to make a living. For now they all have day jobs elsewhere.

It's still absolutely mind boggling how Comcast managed to completely tank a great, and presumably reasonably profitable, network.

Jeff-

I haven't found much that Comcast hasn't screwed up in my experience. The sports channels that have been replacing the Fox Sports Network stations are an absolute joke.
