Akamai recently created a website to demonstrate the potential of high definition programming on the Web. The site, www.Thehdweb.com, won’t be up long (two weeks or so I have been told), so check it out soon. Right now they are running programming from CBS (CSI), the BBC (the BBC Motion Gallery) and Apple. If you have a high resolution laptop or desktop screen, it is an amazing experience and gives you a glimpse of what the Net of the future will offer. Be warned, however, that if you are not running 7.5 mps or better, the experience can be a bit frustrating. Still, for as long as it is up and running, TheHDweb.com has a spot on “Larry’s List”...
