By the way, that V is Vinnie of The Escape Pod (how apposite is that name?). His post on this is much better than mine (how could it be worse?) because it points to where this event might lead us.
As I said in a comment on his blog, could this be the tipping point that leads advertising back to being the fun industry that most of us wanted to get into?
Of course, the big networks will still survive, and with the money they have behind them they will be able to attract a certain degree of talent, but it’ll be interesting to see how this affects things.
