Classical Structures in a Jazz Age

|

I was just listening to a piece from NPR's On the Media about the Google purchase of YouTube. The analyst pointed out that three years ago. if you were predicting the future of the Internet, YouTube, MySpace and iTunes would not have been on your radar.

Furthermore, in the past month:

RISHAD TOBACCOWALA: ...In the last three weeks, give or take one week, you basically have had the Google/YouTube relationship, you've had Freston getting thrown out -

BOB GARFIELD: Of Viacom.

RISHAD TOBACCOWALA: Right. You've got Jobs talking about iTV. You've got Amazon basically talking about Unbox. And so forget about three years. In a month, you've got a new world, and this whole idea of planning is becoming very, very difficult. In fact, what we basically say is we now have classical structures in a jazz age.
