What you want; when and where you want it
A colleague here forwarded a link to an article about how web sites delivering video are now beginning to offer 3 flavors Windows/Mac (which in of itself has multiple flavors), iPod and Sony PSP. While that tidbit is an interesting leading indicator of how we consume video, what I felt was as interesting was the reference about Steven Soderbergh's new film Bubble. The film will be simultaneously released on film, HD, and DVD. I can't recall that ever happening before. I'm still digesting what it all means, but the first question that popped into my head was "what if books were released in print, film, TV, and DVD simultaneously?" Maybe even a chapter at a time?
