Current Edge

Current TV is a “Network” made up of short video segments produced by their own resources as well as those in their community of viewers. I put network in quotes because I’ve never seen the channel or any of it’s shows. It sounds like something you’d read about in Wired magazine. A kind of a hybrid and hopefully higher quality YouTube with quality assurance department. You can even get paid if your content gets aired on TV. What does this grand experiment mean to you? Toyota is sponsoring a channel of “pods” (I wonder what “pods” refers to?) called Current Edge. Right now there are some good skateboarding segments up there, most notably the Texas Sized Ramps which covers the Death Star and Banana Farm, which you may have seen in the likes of Thrasher or some other mainstream rag. The Renegade Concrete pod on Marginal Way in Seattle is just OK, and the one on the Dublin Skate Scene seems a little generic, at least the first 20 seconds do because it craps out abruptly.

  1. Cool stuff. Thanks.

  2. I found and watched this channel on TV over the weekend. It’s about what you’d expect, most of the video s kind of lame, falling back on cliched MTV/VH1 style editing and production. Occasionally there are some interesting segments, but it is mostly very stale with lot’s of canned neo-pop punk and hip hop soundtracks too. It’s a good idea for a channel but the quality of the content isn’t there. The VJ’s are also very lame. Most of the viewer created content falls into the trap of trying to mimic the style of the crap that is already on TV. Good news is that the segments are short so if they suck, they are over soon. I watched for about an hour and a half and there were a couple decent segments.
