In 1000 days – sometime in 2013 – 11 billion square feet of digital screen surface will exist on earth, enough to cover the planet’s surface almost 50 times. For Peter Kaufman of Intelligent Television, the potential exists in the emerging global “screen culture” to transform everyone’s lives for good. Kaufman says online video programming is quickly surfacing wherever content is found, and is about to transform all media – including book publishing – utterly and completely.
“Imagine the day that Wikipedia becomes video-enabled,” Kaufman muses. “And when the video on Wikipedia will be as easy to edit, manipulate, correct, annotate as the text is today, it will blow the doors off of everything.”
