The Chaos Scenario on NPR

Bob Garfield of NPR did a great 12-minute segment on the chaos scenario facing the media business, as new technologies like PVRs, BitTorrent and Podcasting take hold.

My comment were expectedly a little less enthusiastic, but then that’s me. ‘We cease to be demographics, we become individuals again,’ Garfield concludes. ‘Mass media will be overthrown by micromedia,’ adds Drazen Pantic of Unmediated, perhaps a bit too melodramatically.
