Obsessed with the future of TV

This is a notebook about television, internet video, and what the next living room will be. It's an outline powered by Fargo. The editor of Glass is Zach Seward; the lead developer is Sam Williams.

The name is an argument: that media are best understood as competition for attention on screens connected to the internet. Phones, tablets, laptops, monitors, television sets—it's all just glass.

  • Netflix no longer carries Sesame Street (but it's still on Amazon Prime).
      • The eight most recent seasons fell off Netflix at the end of August for unclear reasons. One possibility: Sesame Street has its own subscription video service now.
      • This stuff matters. Some choice Netflix customer comments:
        • Please bring it back! Clara, our two year old, LOVES Sesame Street. Bring it back! Do it! Push the button! -- A sad Dad
        • Why would you EVER remove Sesame Street from the Kids channel?!!! It's a classic!
        • My son is pissed that you removed this. I am too. Seriously thinking about canceling now.
