Venice Project has a name!
From Michael Arrington's TechCrunch page, the Venice project now has a real name : joost. You can get to it now on their site http://www.joost.com .
What is joost? Joost™ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. We're in the process of making it as TV-like as we can, with programmes, channels and adverts. You can also see some things that we think will enhance the TV experience: searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat. There are many more new features to come!
It also happens to be what Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis are doing in their spare time.
