An impossibly young staff hams it up to a 1998 semi-hit, Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta,” and it’s pretty infectious. And yet another Web creation I am spending my time with instead of “professional” content.

Tomorrow night, I plan on spending the whole night touring Joost, the much-hyped (and now much-funded with a $45 million infusion yesterday) new online video service from the creators of Kazaa and Skype, which has the pilot of “Starsky and Hutch” in its offerings (Huggy Bear Heaven!). Could it be the perfect meshing of Web and TV? As long is it is not WebTV–we are old enough to recall that washout, thank you very much.
