“The Future of Digital Media is a two-month series, sponsored by Orb, that explores how the empowerment of the consumer over his or her media experience, coupled with the technological innovation that’s broadly democratizing media creation, is leading to a revolution in the way people access, consume, share and remake content.
Through interviews with leading commentators and cutting edge practioners, The Future of Digital Media examines the social, legal and economic impacts of this disruptive and revolutionary change. ”
“So now anyone can control, create, market, distribute, find, and interact with anything they want. The barrier to entry to media is demolished. Media, always a one-way pipe, now becomes an open pool. And, most important, the centralization of media — the marketplace, the network, the monopoly — is replaced by a decentralized universe. This changes everything. It changes the relationships. It changes the economics. It changes the power.”
