Re-introduction

As a follow-up to the previous entry, I am trying to better define what this blog is all about. If it has not been clear what I am trying to achieve via these postings, well, here's a brief explanation.

For the past few years, I have been observing some new trends emerging in content creation and distribution, and also new and innovative ways of merging two or more technologies to create a new services and products.

Examples of Content Creation and Distribution: Flickr, YouTube, Google Video, iStockPhoto etc.
Examples of merging technologies: Zillow, ThinkFree Online etc.

What I hope to do through this blog is to, both, document these emerging technologies and to start a discussion regarding the future direction of the medium.

I think there is trememdous potential in content creation in the future due to the proliferation of digital still and video cameras, easy to use computer software such as iPhoto and iMovie, high-speed internet connection for sending and receiving content, and easily available distribution channels online (and offline such as iPods).

We are at the begining of the next big thing and I am just trying to see the big picture and learn from other peoples experiences. So, that's in a nutshell of what I'm trying to do.

I am open for your comments, advice, criticism etc.

Thanks. This whole thing is a learning experiment on my part to see if I can map my own future direction.
