Video web possible in Exeter

A couple of things have happened recently to make me think that a video web is getting closer. People at Life Bytes on Sidwell Streeet opposite the Odeon are expecting a plasma screen sometime next week. Apparently this is funded by advertising and will be one of several in Exeter. Not sure how this will work. Will there be enough content to make it interesting or will the ads just be annoying? But at least the idea of display from web will get over. There may be wireless access at some locations. The content is all supplied over the web. More on this later.

Also I am finding more video from Exeter on YouTube. For example, this about the cathedral. Not sure what is being said as it is in Italian. Still, it means that a guide to Exeter can be made up from various sources.
