The Web is a Serial Killer

Laurence Haughton points us to an article from The Economist in which the Web’s industry changing nature is very candidly characterized:

“The web takes its victims one at a time. First, in the mid-1990s, print media started to feel the terrifying effect of losing their monopoly on publication…in the early 2000s, the same thing happened to music…Now it’s television’s turn. In 2007 TV will have its first “music moment”—the realisation that a core audience (the 18-34-year-old male) has moved online, possibly for good.”
