Ben Elowitz, co founder of Wet Paint has written a thought provoking article on the website All Things D. There has long been talk of a future landscape in which TV is motion controlled. This article makes that prediction look archaic. Ben thinks Siri, Apples A.I language interface on the iPhone 4GS will be the game changer. Not just for device manufacturers, but more importantly, content creators. Networks will become meaningless to the viewer. There will be a blurred line (probably no line) between a YouTube video or a BBC programme. The hierarchy that has existed in TV forever will disappear. Choice will be king.
My question is- How do we monetize this myriad of content? What will be free? What will be paid for? What is the business model?
