I was listening to an All Things Digital interview with the head of YouTube, Salar Kamangar, and he said something very interesting in regards to interactive video. He used the example of a football game, and said, imagine being able to choose the helmet-cam of a certain player and watch the game from their perspective. Pretty interesting, but fairly predictable. But then he said something that I had never thought could actually apply to sports. He said, imagine if the viewers could vote on what the next play should be. Wow, now there’s a concept. Imagine a sport where the fans were the play-callers. That would give a whole new meaning to city/state rivalries, because the fans would be very responsible for wins and losses. Suddenly, I think you would start to see whole cities becoming students of a sport. Cities playing cities. Would work with chess too I guess. Very cool.
