I spent Friday morning at the Digital Media Conference at the AFI Theater is scenic downtown Silver Spring. What an interesting show! I can't think of a technology segment undergoing such radical change as digital media. One phrase I heard really stuck in my mind, "Now, it’s no longer two eyeballs and a screen, it’s two eyeballs and three screens." That's a quote from Joe Bates, director of research for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). Newspapers, music, film, tv are all being impacted by technology change and the subversion of their traditional business models.

Not new news exactly...but the pace of change seems to be gathering momentum.

There is a nice summary of the event here.
