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.

  • We're putting this notebook on hold.
      • We've decided to suspend the notebook portion of Glass. Our obsession with the future of TV will continue with stories on Quartz and future experiments here on glass.qz.com. The notebook is archived at glass.qz.com/notes.
      • The Glass notebook has been a lot of fun and well received among people in the media industry. It also helped us play around with new story formats, specifically outlining, which directly informed the design of the Brief we recently launched on the Quartz homepage. But broader interest in the Glass notebook wasn't strong enough to justify continued investment of time and resources. We'd rather hit pause now and move on to other experiments.
      • Glass remains an official Quartz obsession, following what happens as television, film, and other media are increasingly delivered over the internet. Stories in the obsession can be found here. You can also follow @qzglass on Twitter for new stories we publish and many of the same links we've been posting on the notebook.
