Director, David Lynch thinks “The Internet is the new TV”

On today’s edition of NPR’s Talk of the Nation, director David Lynch had this to say when host, Neal Conan, asked him if he would ever consider doing TV again.

“No, I think the Internet is the new TV. The Internet — continuing stories — is total freedom. Everyone and his little brother has a television station now. You could put shows up, continue them and go in complete freedom. The Internet is getting better and better and better.”

When someone of Lynch’s stature starts talking like this, you have to believe that the Internet, which I interpret to mean YouTube, podcasting and such, is truly becoming a force in the industry — especially for less mainstream fare, like Lynch’s work.

Thanks to Chris Brogan for his Twitter on this interview.
