For years now, the term ‘convergence’ has been bandied about as the ‘next big thing.’ The paradise envisioned has all media in digital format, and distributed from a central location to multiple devices throughout the home. The Web on your TV. TV on your PC. Music everywhere. Your refrigerator ordering food on the Internet. Your […]

Comments Off on Kicking things off

Two years ago I felt the buzz of the new media revolution.
