YouTube Removing The Tyranny Of Choice

I've always pictured utopia as the time when choice, not impulse or passivity, drives our participation and consumption.  But as the NY Times reports, that does not fit with YouTube's business mandate to keep viewers on their site. YouTube LeanBack will debut this fall: “There’s no browsing, no searching, no clicking. It behaves like you would expect television to.”

Thanks to Phillip Lefesi for bringing this to my attention!
