More Thoughts on Joost

I've been playing with Joost a bit over the past week, and I stand by my initial impressions. I like their technology, and the interface is not bad once you get used to it. The problem is they lack compelling content at the moment. It seems to me that Joost either needs to get more deals with television content providers, or else open up the platform for Internet video (Rocketboom, etc.).

I suggest they talk to Mark Cuban, as I think he still owns the Lifestyles of the Rich and famous catalog and since he can't repurpose that for HDnet, since it was shot on video and can't really be upconverted, it may make sense for him to syndicate it through Joost.
