Nice insight into the idea that media is less about content and more about context. And the context is personal – you are the starting point. Content will conform to the individual – place, form factor, time of day, etc. – not the other way around.

When people want to know how the media business will deal with the Internet, the best way to begin to understand the sweeping changes is to recognize that the consumer of entertainment and information is now in the center. That center changes everything. It changes your concept of space, time and location. It changes your sense of community. It changes the way you view the information, news and data coming directly to you.
