Joost is the new internet television platform by the makers of Skype and Kazaa. While there’s still not a ton of content available for Joost, the company has been signing up major partners like Viacom in recent months. Currently you can catch some B-list Comedy Central and MTV programs like Laguna Beach and Stella.
But that’s not the point. The point is just as Skype dramatically changed the way that people think about internet telephony, Joost is changing the notion of internet television. It’s not a tiny box on a big window. It’s a full screen application with intuitive tools for changing “channels,” and selecting content. But it’s not live like old fashioned TV. It’s more comparable with video on demand.
Anyway, here’s how to enter the contest:
Leave a message in the comments section of this post with your email address in something-at-something-dot-com format. No need to post your information in such a way that the spambots can find you.
