Intro:


"Online entertainment as an all-streaming entertainment cornucopia is rapidly approaching. You might be surprised how quickly the transition is taking place.''


When you look at this infographic from Sandvine (a company that makes devices that assist broadband providers with throttling the connections of their users, so they should know about high bandwidth usage), you’ll see how the long-heralded convergence of broadband and entertainment is almost there. It’s not all-streaming yet, but close to it.


In fact, according to Sandvine’s Global Internet Phenomena Report for Fall 2011, if you’re subscribing to broadband Internet service, 96% of you were using some sort of real-time online entertainment each month.


Beyond that, using some combination of broadband-tapping devices such as smart TVs, gaming consoles, settops, smartphones and tablets, “55% of all real-time entertainment traffic” is coming from sources other than cable or broadcast TV, says Sandvine.


****That number is only going to get bigger. Will streaming ever completely replace broadcast and cable TV?

Great discussion here between futurists Ross Dawson and Gerd Leonhard of The Futures Agency discussing where Twitter is going."


In this talk, both Gerd Leonhard & Ross Dawson say the Twitter News Network will become bigger than CNN. Right now CNN is using a combination of Youtube, Skype and Twitter to deliver the most up to breaking news as it happens, this is only the beginning, it will be interesting to watch this unfold.
