  • kind of media being consumed
    a dichotomy
    small, fast, cheap; long, expensive, immersive
    5 minute youtube clips and individual songs vs. 12-18 hour TV series, bought on DVD and consumed in a single sitting, games with 40 hours of play, even movies going 3 hours+
    (can movies ever really be immersive in terms of story?)
    the traditional time unit of media - 30 minutes to 2 hours (a TV show, an album, a film) - disappears, at least in consumption
    (the dichotomy holds for websites, too)

  • virtual size of media is growing quickly, as the physical size disappears
    media I have with me just now:
    150 gb in my computer
    150 gb portable hard disk
    4gb in my camera
    8gb in my phone
    4 gb memory stick
    1gig ipod
    325 gb without really thinking

    at home I have 3 computers, network storage, various backup disks.... 2 terabytes

    swallowable media - 8-16gb micro SD cards
    6 movies, 100 albums
    discographies, life works, complete genres, not individual albums or films

  • size of connection
    3Mbit mobile Internet
    10-20Mbit fixed Internet
    100Mbit wireless networking
    1Gbit fixed networking
    no ubiquitous - always working - wireless connections
    local sharing is always going to be an order of magnitude faster
    fixed Internet is getting 'fast enough' - but putting 60Gb of music in the cloud took over a month
