I’ve got to thank Amazon for recommending this one to me…
I’m only about a third of the way through and I’ve already gotten ten times my money’s worth.
Ostensibly, the book is about how Big Media is trying to limit the evolution of the new Internet-centric media tools in order to protect its turf. (If you think that’s implausible, you missed the vicious legal battle Hollywood studios waged against electronics companies to try to stop them from bringing the first VCRs so market.)
The author J.D. Lasica does a good job telling the story, but his book is much more than that.
It’s a superb documentation of how the new media tools are turning the entire media landscape upside down
We’re heading into completely unchartered territory and Lasica’s one of the best navigators I’ve come across so far. Two thumbs way up.
