The Future of Media

This is a very interesting video on the future of media. Some great thought behind it and some catchy graphics make it worth the six minutes of your life. Is it unrealistic? You tell me. Not sure about the logo right at the end though - conspiracy theory anyone?

"IF a lion could talk, we would not understand him" (Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations, II, xi, p. 223.

Meaning in this context = it's impossible to predict anything about the future because it's a completely different paradigm. The future belongs to the future, the past to the past. History is 'h'istory.

Sci Fi stories always emerge from predictions taken from the present - therefore they are limited. That's why some Art appears completely mad. A true visionary would appear to be completely out of thier mind, speaking in tongues.

That's why this video is pretty limited. It's function is simply to appear intelligent and bring in gulliable clients to it's media consultancy business...
