NBC and Fox take just ten months to come up with a name: Hulu


The Fox/NBC joint venture to create a video site that will rival YouTube may actually launch before everyone forgets what YouTube was.

They picked a name today -- Hulu -- only ten months after the joint venture talks began. A trial will begin in October, but you can sign up now.

I predict this will be every bit as successful as Movielink.com, the site we all download movies from.

I'll certainly remember the name Hulu, because it rhymes with Sulu, as in Lieutenant. (Unfortunately, Viacom, which owns 'Star Trek,' isn't participating in the joint venture.)
