Revision3 Grows Up – Will it Rival Television?
SAN FRANCISCO, September 29, 2006 (PodTech News) – Digg Founders Jay Adelson and Kevin Rose have taken their underground, hacker-chic Internet television network, Revision3, out of the garage and into its first round of funding. They celebrated the formal launch of Revision3 September 26th at a club in San Francisco. The network hosts eleven edgy, technology-centered programs, with Rose and co-host Alex Albrecht’s Diggnation as the flagship. Revision3 has a loyal audience and over 1.5 million downloads per month â€” but can it grow? Will it last?
