Many years ago, I had thought what an amazing thing technology was. It was ever moving always improving, and solving problems. My thoughts drifted to the next resting stop in entertainment. I wondered how they were going to get the media to us. Like Video killing the radio star. Computer killed the video star, even thought it is not dead yet, TV. is ,as we know it, heading out.. As a matter of facts, communication as we know it is out the window.
This Christmas my children were gifted all the new computer games and all the add-ons that come with it. I am not a Computer person, sure I can type really long Blogs and I can check my e-mail, but other then that not-a. Well after four hours, they had the house wired as one. Hand held game systems, Computer, TV, phones, surround sound: all acting as one. I said all acting as one. What that means is if I am sitting here typing you, my son can get on his video game console through the TV and watch internet movies from the computer. Did you follow me there? No, well do not feel bad I did not understand either.
My point is this; Life is changing and you have to keep up. If my son can watch a www.YouTtube.com video on a 42-inch screen TV, it means its all changed again. The next resting place for entertainment is anywhere it wants to be. Instead of one person hunched over a computer screen watching your video, it is on the big screen, more views. I can get any internet radio station, or sound for that matter on my surround system ANY. Therefore, that means no more mini speakers blotching out your music. Now I can hear what every sound in beautiful quality.
Soon the TV screen shall be converted to a one stop shopping Mecca for entertainment, news, drama, music, education, meetings, communication. Mother can check her stock quotes on www.yahoo.com as her www.limewire.com selection plays. The phone rings and she will watch her new grand daughter walk across the Screen, and say her first words. Soon everything will be wired to the internet.
The internet, once a loosely controlled system with few conveniences, is now the one thing keeping a Nation from falling to its knees, the next Civilization, maybe. A tool for the masses, one great thing is as technology advances it gets easier to use. With the internet, it is not only easy, it’s cheap. You can make a music video for little to nothing; have it played in any home in any part of the world. Nothing new about that, but for the fact that now it is going big screen. Same with the music, big sound and more listeners makes sense. It‘s been proven that the world can make a star out of a computer user, but now it is changing. I can open my phone surf the internet, find music, send it to my home system, and listen to it. Buy it and own it. All without going to a store. No intermediaries, no travel, just me and the artist
One thing that interests me is “live case”, for those that do not know technology has leaped again with an amazing thing called holographic imaging, premiered on election night. An incredible 3d image of a person was broadcasted to a live CNN report. It was as if the person was in the room, but was really hundreds of miles. Just think, you could watch a live concert in your back yard at the same time someone in Japan has the same live concert in his or her yard. All 3D. You can now be in two places at once, via the internet.
My point is this: the internet is growing, and a smart creative person can make it work for them.
