Leave it to a quick thinking Mac user to suggest recording a nationally televised event with his MacBook and QuickTime. If you ever needed  proof that the lines between online and television have blurred, this might be the embodiment of that proof. Jimmy Kimmel hit a snafu during his taping, and a power outage threatened the filming crew, but the MacBook came through in a time of need, like it always seems to do. Kimmel recorded interviews with Seth Rogan, John Hensen, and Deirks Bentley with an iSight and a Macbook.

Who says webcasting is dead, it just may have been given a shot in the arm from an unexpected source.

A preview video is already up on YouTube. It should make for an interesting show tonight.
