CableNet 2000 Tour, Part 2: The Beginnings of the Bound App (Alex Thompson, Mixed Signals)
At CableNet 2000, I interviewed four companies showcasing some of the must-see technologies of the year. In this segment, I spoke with Alex Thompson, CEO of Mixed Signals Technologies, about interactive TV. She (a rock star in her own right – in her spare time she races motocross) explains interactive applications that the let viewers play along with game shows, and gather statistics on sporting events, like HBO Boxing. Her system was up on WebTV+ and AOLTV.
IN HINDSIGHT (2011): Yes I cringe at myself through many of these. Sometimes violently. Did I not notice that she said “you pick up the remote,” proceeding to hoist up an enormous, wired keyboard? Or was it edited out for brevity? Let’s go with that.
