Heavyweight Creativity: The Next Big Idea

Should we kill television before it kills us?

Mass communication technologies have never been replaced

Communication technology move from public to home to personal

Now we are in the post modern phase: a mirror in stead of a window;
the tv is now about us self
Future; no reality at all; a own reality of the digital environment

Distributely equally; not pull or push

In fifteen minutes everybody will be famous

What will we do with it
Who will control it
How will we be part of it

* John Underkoffler, Chief Scientist, Treadle & Loam, and advisor to
Spielberg on the film “Minority Report” (United States)
