Wow…I’m just over 4 minutes into Bruce Sterling’s annual SXSW closing rant, and he’s already dropped a supremely memorable meme:
They [the Internet and Movies/TV] don’t converge. Broadband eats everything. It just eats the living daylights out of it. And the old line guys are trying to live on artificial scarcity, and they’re really trying to just guard the pipes, and just pile up the DRM, and it’s just…it’s a terrible business.
Any question as to whether or not Bruce gets it? Get this from the SXSW podcasts page, or direct url here.
