Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Whats on the Mind of the YASMIN art/science/technology community of practice ?

What's on mind? What has my internal radar picked up on?

Well, one "thing" I've been watching is the convergence of various electronically delivered media. Consider how non-stations, such as Hulu and Netflix, are now "broadcasting" shows they've produced, rather than content from other media. Also, how various broadcast and cable stations now have a web presence. In addition, services such as Livestream allow us to "attend" a performance from the comfort of ... well ... nearly anywhere.

All of this implies that an individual can receive content without ever using a "TV" or leaving their domicile. How will this impact performance arts such as film, theater, dance, music? Will we see more and more of a virtual audience presence at these "events", perhaps leading to the "death" of the physical performance?

Anyway, you asked. ;-)
