AlwaysOn's Summit at Stanford 2008 began Tuesday evening with the unveiling of the "Global 250" startup companies selected by the media company as up and comers, and a luminary panel on Big Media and online video moderated by investor Bill Gurley.

"The more people watch...the better we perform," said John Edwards, CEO of Move Networks.

Or, as Edwards notes, finding television programming in many ways a replacement to the Tivo/ video recording device... saving the overhead of storing it.
