Week 2 Minute Paper: Digital Storytelling and Distribution, Walled Gardens Suck and the TV is Dead

Posted: October 7, 2010 in Com 597, Digital Media

Walled gardens suck and the TV is dead… or at least it’s hanging on in hospice. It amazes me that companies like Sony are still coming out with media products that regulate the type of content that can be accessed. Nobody wants these products anymore! Or, in my opinion, if they do, they just don’t know any better. I am all for an open market in all facets, and this is definitely not limited to my TV usage. I have always been frustrated with the restrictions of classical TV viewing, and I believe that these corporations that are coming out with products that are their own walled gardens will find that the success of these items will be short-lived. Long live open access!

Also looking forward to working on these group projects… should be interesting to see what we come up with!
