Current TV prepares for lift-off

Current TV is the new cable network from Al Gore and company that will solicit much of its content from viewers. How good can that be? We'll find out starting August 1st.

Today's NY Times offers an overview of the business, and its plans to turn traditional television on its head. Most interesting is that visitors to the channel's Web site will help filter through all of the stuff that's submitted (3000 videos so far), voting on the pieces they like best.

The Supreme Court will get involved only in the event of a tie.
