More on this lecture after I actually see it. But there was a Huffington editorial in the local paper today and she had this comparison regarding traditional media converging with new media:
The shifting dynamic between those two forces is exactly like the relationship between Sarah Conner and the T101 in the "Terminator" movies. At first, the visitor from the future(digital) seemed intent on killing Sarah (print). But as the relationship progressed and the sequels unspooled, the Terminator became Sarah and her son's one hope for salvation. Today, you can almost hear digital media (which for some reason has a thick Austrian accent) saying to print: "Come with me if you want to live!"
Am I the only one who finds that ... funny?
