I love collecting quotes about the future from “experts.”
Here’s what one of the most powerful men in Holywood had to say about television in its early years:
“Television won’t be able to hold onto any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box.”
– Darryl F. Zanuck, head 20th Century Fox
Today, there are still a lot of people who think Internet video isn’t a serious threat to televsion. I just met a bunch of them at an advertising conference in New York. All I can say is “dream on.”
