Friday Pastime

Bill Maher says it's the first Internet talk show, and that Dean Koontz is the first guest. It's Amazon Fishbowl, complete with commercials. Because of the platform, as Bill interviews his guests, the relevant content appears right underneath the little screen, purchasable of course, with one click. Sponsor UPS features in a segment where an Amazon customer has his book The Goomba Diet delivered by the author, actor (The Sopranos) Steve Schirripa and a UPS driver--all very meta something.

As Bill says to his guests: "Welcome to the computer."

Bill would be about twelve years too late to be first, I'm afraid.

In particular, I draw your attention to Cliff Lynch and Peter Deutsch
