People are going to find a way to watch what they want

It seems a few people used Periscope to live broadcast the premiere of Game of Thrones. How dumb can you be? Nevermind, that is a rhetorical question.

…with all of the ways to watch Game of Thrones right now, would you really want to watch it second-hand over Periscope’s tiny, low-res video streams?

Well, that’s what I said about video on the iPhone too and look how that turned out. I’m now asking the same question of the Watch, “Will people one day want to watch video on this tiny device?” And the crazy answer is, yes. It seems history has proven time and again that people will use any opportunity to consume good content, no matter the device or the quality.

To quote Dr. Ian Malcolm from the great Jurassic Park:

If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life Video will not be contained. Life Video breaks free, it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh... well, there it is.

I should make a t-shirt with that saying on it. Somebody email Cotton Bureau for me.
