Sssh: The Venice Project

The web is buzzing (well, parts of it) with gossip about a project that is in beta-test mode. The Venice Project is…um…I can’t really say because they’re not. This is what they do say:

We’re working on a project that combines the best things about television with the social power of the internet – a project that gives viewers, advertisers and content owners more choice, control and creativity than ever before.

Co-creators include Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, and other talented people such as Allan Beaufour Larsen and Ugo Cei . Although they’re rolling out server hubs all over the world, it seems to be based in the Netherlands. So, my fellow NL researchers: got any info?
