So here’s the deal. I am going to be a Content Developer of New Media at the UFC. This means I am dealing in the on-demand World as opposed to over the air World. I will go to fights and so on but I will be mainly responsible for putting things online or to other new forms of devices and distribution channels.
So now that that is out here is a thought along the same lines.
It’s always reassuring to me to see heavy hitters in the Movie business like Lucas and Rodriguez point to technology and believe in it. Because I carry some of their beliefs such as technology will only get better, costs will come down, and we are only scratching the surface here.
I read an op-ed today on CNET from John Chambers the CEO of Cisco Systems. He was giving praise to Prime Minister Tony Blair for embracing technology and education and seeing not only its impact but also its potential. Again I felt reassured of my beliefs.
Seeing that people like Blair, Chambers, and Lucas are seeing beyond the 6 inches in front of their face gives me hope that these things are going to happen and are going happen sooner rather then later.
PLUS: I am moving Monday and will attempt to blog from the road. We’ll see how that goes.
