The growing pains of the New Media…

This comic from Hijinks Ensue elaborates changes in new media, and will for many be a fantastic and encouraging statement on the future: that media is becoming more. Becoming less about directly monetized intellectual content and instead focusing on the mass of human brains who choose to tune into this digital art.

Imagine a world where it is almost a silly idea to pay for media. Digital TV, Music, Feature Films, Books and Print Media will be widely and easily available. The public, amateurs and fans will have unprecedented power… Is that scary — or exciting?
