Future of media revealed
Listening to the podcast of WNYC's On the Media last weekend I caught an interview with one of the makers of a fascinating look at the future of media. The eight-minute flick "EPIC 2014" starts with the rise of Google and Amazon, and then leaps off into 2006 and beyond with a plausible timeline detailing how these Internet-based companies will bury the mainstream media by 2014. If you like those slighly dystopian scenarios with ominous voiceovers (aka. William Gibson novels), check out Epic 2014.
