Scott Macauley at the Filmmaker Magazine blog tipped me to a stock market blog, SeekingAlpha, and the post "How Video Is Going To Take Over The World". But the reality is that its not "going to", it already has.
It feels pretty damn close to Bladerunner in NYC with video coming at you in all directions: in taxicabs, on subway station signs, and in corporate elevators. Where's the escape? Scott pointed out a comment on SeekingAlpha where we will soon need to have anti-video glasses to squash the onslaught.
There needs to be a Citzens' Bill Of Rights enacted that guarantees that the marketeers don't have the right to invade our minds in the public space. Turning On should be a matter of personal choice. Soon we will have no escape from commercials others than our own home. If I was backpacker, I wouldn't be surprise to find a large flat screen at the top of the hike, selling me more cheese.
How are we going to stop Omnivideo World from materializing everywhere? I like daydreaming.
