Silly Site o' the Day

Via Dean Landsman comes a little film that I'm calling silly because it posits all sorts of things that will happen between now and the year 2014 (including the Death of Journalism As We Know It) involving companies like Amazon and Google and other online places we never heard of ten years ago, and I think these corporations don't necessarily determine whether we become a more Orwellian society, as it's likelier a whole new set of corporations will come into play that we can scarcely imagine at this point in time. Still, it's a well-produced 8 minutes at any rate, and didn't hurt my eyes the way stuff like Bladerunner can.
