My father was a brilliant chemical and mechanical engineer. When he bought a new 1964 Pontiac GTO, he was so curious about the engine that he took it apart and laid the pieces out on the garage floor. And when he put it back together, he didn't have any parts left over (a skill I never mastered...).
But one thing Dad always talked about was the primary operating philosophy of the Shade Tree Mechanic: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." And for all of his life, and for most of mine, that philosophy has worked.

[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "Live Sports: Justifying the Investment in Innovation." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"This session will explore new technologies and platforms that are transforming live sports coverage into an interactive, social and multiplatform experience; and--at a time when sports broadcast rights are becoming increasingly expensive--will also attempt to determine the ROI of these innovations: are they succeeding in attracting new viewers, increasing audience engagement, and opening up new opportunities for monetization?
