Just by talking to a few people about my online publishing efforts, I realized there is yet another movement happening online which relates to what I do but which I was unaware.
And I try to be aware.
What chance do any of us have who aren't even trying?
Art and technology are intersecting in all kinds of ways below the radar, and I suspect they are going to explode full blown onto the scene and surprise just about everyone. Stodgy old publishers and media are just browsing the surface.
There will still be room for old-fashioned, brick and mortar stores -- but this whole idea that somehow existing stores are going to co-op the new technology and art movements is just naive.
Like adding an engine to a bike and thinking you're up to date -- and the Harley Davidison is coming up on your rear view mirror and is going to blow you to the side of the road.
