The Cable Show, the new name for the National Show of the cable television industry in the United States, is taking place back in New Orleans. Interactive television is back on the agenda. Tru2way, the new name for OCAP, the OpenCable Applications Platform, offers the prospect of a more unified approach to adding interactivity after a decade of dithering. We look forward to seeing some interesting applications emerge. Next week is another public holiday in some countries, so there will be no newsletter, but there will be updates on the web site and news feed covering any major announcements.
