Technology Disrupts Every Media Industry

As newspapers, radio and television companies struggle with the relentless advancement of technologies and their effect on our business, we are reminded that technology is an agnostic disrupter. The movie industry is now squarely in the path of the coming changes. See the link below for more detail. It will be interesting to see if we start hearing movie executives quoted in trade journals saying something like, "We find the new technologies interesting, but it really will not have a material effect on our core business anytime in the near future." Remember when newspaper execs said that about 3 or 4 years ago?
