Don’t ask “the experts”

July 2nd, 2006

I love collecting quotes about the future from "experts."

Here’s what one of the most powerful men in Holywood had to say about  television in its early years:

"Television won’t be able to hold onto any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box."

– Darryl F. Zanuck, head 20th Century Fox

Today, there are still a lot of people who think Internet video isn’t a serious threat to televsion.  I just met a bunch of them at an advertising conference in New York. All I can say is "dream on."
