I Told You So

This interesting video combines fact and not-too-far reaching speculation to offer a vision of the future of media and access (read:libraries). I just wrote an article about this last week, didn't I? The movie is a few minutes long, but fascinating. My only complaint is that the final few bits seemed a tad pessimistic. We'll find out soon enough I suppose. Perhaps I overrate the general global public.

Maybe a couple of posts about media merging and access, nanotechnology and copyright should follow. All this makes me wish I was in library school again and had an undergrad in computer science!
Found the video via the freakishly wonderful Jenny. Seriously, give it a peek.
Wish a really good comment session would start up around this. Well, maybe 'round Jenny's way it'll happen. :)

Thanks, Michael! I haven't read it yet, but your post sounded eerily like this one awaiting viewing in my aggregator! It sounds like something you would enjoy....

Thanks, Jenny! That article seems to point towards other things I've read as well, though the transpotation aspect isn't something I'd thought of much. Here come the Jetsons!
