From David Carr In Today's Times

Emerging technologies that threaten to destroy the current paradigm can have precisely the opposite effect. Remember when VCRs and then DVDs were going to lay waste to the movie industry and ended up saving it instead? The Web leaks of entertainment that NBC bought and paid for served as a kind of trailer for the real thing.                         —Fred Wilson Dot VC

    Too bad that it killed the link to the NYT. Kind of annoying to have to click through twice.
