CES 2009 – LAS VEGAS. Sarah Austin, video blogger and founder of Pop17, has announced the launch of techku, a new 24/7 internet channel. Techku will focus on original content in the technology space and combine live video with produced shows, and correspondent segments from around the globe.
Utilizing the model of CurrentTV, techku hopes to be the first online technology news television network, featuring up-to-the-minute coverage and breaking news in real time.
