The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

BBC Project Canvas given go ahead to provide internet TV

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER, 1:27 PM on 21st December 2009

The BBC is to push ahead with providing internet services through the TV, after being given the green light from its governing body.

The joint venture, called Project Canvas, will offer a range of free-to-view, HD, video-on-demand and internet services via a set-top box.

It will bring together the UK's major terrestrial broadcasters but has been criticised by pay-TV operator BSkyB.

Project Canvas will provide a number of internet services such as the BBC iPlayer through a special set-top box

Set top boxes using Canvas software are slated to hit the shops late next year. Costing around £200 they will allow access to the BBC iPlayer, Amazon and NHS Direct among others.

The project could make Canvas the dominant platform for internet TV as the partners include the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five along with the Internet Service Providers BT and TalkTalk.

It has been rigorously opposed by BSkyB and Virgin who have their own broadband internet services.

BSkyB has expressed concern that using public money will distort the market for internet TV.

'Sky do not believe that Canvas should be allowed to proceed, or at least, not with the BBC, and the licence fee, playing an active role,' the firm said.

'Given its unique and privileged position in receipt of substantial and guaranteed public funding, the proposals remain inconsistent with the BBC's obligations to adopt the least intrusive and most proportionate means of fulfilling its core public service purpose.'

Despite this, the BBC Trust is expecting to make a provisional ruling next week in favour of the platform, according to the Financial Times.

The project has been awaiting approval since February.

Channel 4 and ISP TalkTalk signed up to the project just last week. Each has committed to invest more than £16million to get the video-on-demand service up and running.

How Project Canvas will work

Canvas is an open-source platform that follows the example of Freeview but uses a broadband connection instead.

Manufacturers will be free to take the Canvas software and use it to create their own set-top boxes that plug directly into the internet.

Third-party content providers, or web services will also be able to plug directly into it.

So Amazon can create a store front for Canvas suited to the television, but use the same back-end technology that powers their web services.

Canvas does not include hardware and will not pull content together. It is there to provide a consistent user interface.
