Flash and sound required. A cool little flick on the history and future of the media.

[thumbsup] Waaaaay cool.

Perhaps I should get a subscription to the NYTimes? [Confused]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Very very good,

and also frighteningly plausible...

Best of times, worst of times indeed, a few exploit it for their benefit... the rest basically get spammed into unconciousness...

Just like now only only upped by an order of magnitude or two...

But then that is how much good SF if written...

Serenak I think you hit the nail on the head. Elements of truth with some wild-eyed speculation thrown in. 'Course predicting the future is tough (just ask the weekly world news). Remember the paperless office? Well the more PDFs I get the more paper there is on my desk! It's kind of like the 70's when the Saudis were going to own everything, no wait, the 80's and the Japanese were going to own everything, no wait, the 90's and Bill Gates is going to own everything...

Dammit, I just want my flying car! [Geek]

Very cool. Just enough reality mixed in to show how possible something like this is.

Whooo... I need a good dystopian futuristic narrative before bed. It keeps me from wallowing in sickly happy dreams. Well done flick there, yes. [thumbsup]

So basically the news becomes a huge global interconnected interactive entertainment forum like this one? Well, let's get started! Why wait 9 years?!?! Who's got rumors?!? Post them!! POST THEM!!!! 2014 is NOW!!!!

I think I saw Britney Spears riding Sean Penn the other day... I swear I did...
