Interesting thing on ESPN...

Sorry if this is old news, but the other day I noticed on Jim Rome's show on ESPN that for several minutes, the screen showed what looked like a Web page, with Jim Rome's show in the upper right corner, rightfully taking up a large part of the screen, while the rest of the screen showed a sports ticker, and some text boxes. I was on a treadmill when this occured, reading a very engrossing book, so I only noticed this spectacle for a moment.

Is this the future of television, especially with the upcoming broadcast conversion in 2009?

Maybe that "convergence" thing (that is, a variety of media devices and services combining into one platform) really is going to happen.

Imagine the possibilities...!
