Epic 2014

Interesting eight-minute b/w Flash movie (EPIC 2014) on the recent history and future of media consolidation, the broadening alliances of Google, Tivo, news providers, and P2P networks projected out a decade into a future where ubiquitous smart servers (“the Google Grid”) and the consuming public cut up and co-create their own news, ultimately pushing the NY Times out of business. “News is now shallow, trivial… but it is what we wanted…”

Not sure who’s behind this, but noticed an embedded reference to montagist Winston Smith (though this doesn’t really feel like his work).

Music: Jorge Ben :: Os Alquimistas Estão Chegando Os Alquimistas
