This concluding episode we’ll be looking at a couple of real-world examples of what you can come to expect from the future of digital media, and how to best prepare for it.
Of course like all modern trilogies, there’s the potential for sequels. If you have questions or if there are new developments in this area, Digital Fanboy is the friend who will either explain it or tell you you’re better off not knowing.
In Episode 1 we talked about the benefits and additional features we get from electronic media. The terms we hear and what they mean. This round we’ll be looking into how digital media works, and fails – What DRM is and means and how it creates opportunity and complicates “ownership” of digital works. (If you’re paying attention, there’s a little Rebels V. Empire here that you can try at home, but you didn’t hear that from me.)
Digital Fanboy is our exploration into digital media. How we use it, how it uses us, and how to get a better handle on everything. I hope that by breaking this down into small tastes I can help you understand what the present and future hold for us, just as I exorcise my own demons in this area. Come, take the red pill…
