So what is in the world will we be discussing? This is meant to be a discussion about the tools and technologies that will enable content creators 5 years from now to create quality content.
What will be important to content creators and their audiences? Will meta data or even farther down that path access to additional content that that relates to the primary content be needed?
How will the ability of the average viewer to take the creation of content for granted in the form of the ever blossoming user created videos on sights like Vimeo, Flixster and you tube affect their demands on the content they are willing to pay for and or get on a premium outlet?
What do the serious content creators need and want in the tools for the future and are those desires with in the realm of possibility?
What is the one thing the manufacturers are missing today and which they really need to focus on now in order to be on point in five years?
What are todays cutting edge technologies and where will they take us and themselves in the future?
Will content creators be developing direct relationships with their viewers in the same way we see musical artist breaking ground with today?
Will large screen TVs and handheld viewers like the iTouch and PSP change the demand for content?
Does the nature of the business of technology actually drive the creation of content as in the tail wags the dog? Ultimately the perfect tools to create may never be made if they are not economical to produce.
