From P2PNet:

ZeD is online 24/7 and goes out on Canada's national CBC TV week-nights from 11:25 pm to 12:05.

A, "launch pad for independent creative expression that's slipped the leash of expectation," it's also a, "synapse-teasing space where the yin of the Web slips seamlessly into the yang of TV, and back again," it says.

ZeD features original live music, dance and spoken word performances by groundbreaking artists; frontline indie-culture reportage by a crew of cross-Canada video correspondents; chats with culture creators who are making a stir; and innovative short film, video, animation, music, words, performance, ideas and, visual art pieces from around the world.

And on January 6, the code base that powers zed.cbc.ca became available as open source under Apache License 2.0.
