"It is the best of times, it is the worst of times."
About two years ago, I saw a video called 'Epic 2014', it talked about the 'Evolving Personalized Information Construct'. At the time it was a very powerful video, it also made some wild predictions about what the 'media scape' might look like (such as Googlezon [Google/Amazon merged]).
Below is the updated sequel to the original video, with a slightly different prediction of the future.
Like the previous video, this one contains some imaginative guesses at what the Web and media could look like in the next 40-50 years. According to the predictions from the video Google will buy Microsoft, Amazon will buy Yahoo, and Second Life becomes the dominant virtual world.
