Charlie Rose interviewed Jerry Seinfeld a few nights ago. It’s compelling television, and so much more than the usual “Letterman and Seinfeld goofing around” type of interview we’re used to. It went off the rails a few times, but both Seinfeld and Rose were at their best, and it’s a worthwhile hour of television.
Speaking of Charlie Rose, the CharlieRose.com website has just gone through a complete update, and it has gone all “social software” with comments, episode sharing, RSS feeds, etc. This is one situation where applying this kind of thing is useful because the so-called “social object” — in this case each night’s episode — is a good piece of bedrock upon which to build interactions.
