Trying to predict how web technology will force changes in the news media over the near future is very close to writing science fiction. I’m sure there are some high priced consultants out there making the attempt, but all they’re doing is throwing out their best guesses and wrapping them in a nice story.
So the two guys who created the short film EPIC 2014 are probably as accurate as anyone in their vision of how the news media and the web will evolve in the next decade. The video is not fancy but is very hypnotic in both style and substance, with some very compelling concepts given the way that web socialization tools have progressed in just a few years.
Accurate? Who knows. But their ideas are at least as good as any I’ve read lately.
