Video pods are here, and chaos is coming

So what does this mean?
If you are sensible enough, you will discuss this around, tell your colleagues, friends and whoever cares that TV is not, and will not be, what it used to be.
Get this:
TELEVISION WILL NO LONGER BE REALLY A MASS MEDIUM.
AND IF IT IS, IT WILL BE FRAGMENTED AND CHAOTIC ENOUGH NOT TO FEEL LIKE IT!

We are entering a new age, when TV will be replaced increasingly by "group videos" or "video blogs"..in other words, videos will resemble books. There will be countless numbers of podcasts----on streets, in libraries, in stalls, being sold first-hand, second-hand, borrowed.
And downloaded.
There will be the mediocre and the excellent, the experimental and the vain. There will be creators and racketeers, hyping and triping.
Chaos, chaos, chaos.
Media's freedom will look like this:

What happens to the electronic media?
Guess!
