New Venice Project Name: ‘Joost’

The Venice Project can’t escape hype, with GigaOM and NewTeeVee no exception. Finally, the online television startup from the founders of Skype has a production name: Joost. Of course, the premature hype streak lives on, as that URL is still password protected.

We have some new screenshots below the jump.

At least now we can promise you no more posts on “the Venice Project” before it actually launches!

But…we did just get a new batch of beta invites, so what the heck, we’ll give them to the first five commenters.
