Why the press?
Pretty simple really – this is yet another medium that is being attacked by technology. What need is there for physical textbooks? None anymore. We don’t need record companies to distribute music. We don’t need film companies to distribute. We don’t need publishers to distribute.
Yes, we need them to produce content – music, video and text – but the middlemen that we needed to produce and distribute? Sorry – no longer needed.
There is no doubt in my mind that this is the way of the future.
