Flow Conference | University of Texas (kinda an Unconference - very interesting)

The 2012 Flow Conference will resemble traditional academic meetings in name only: there will be no panels, no papers, and no plenary sessions. Instead, the event will feature a series of roundtables, each organized around a discussion question on contemporary issues in television/media culture and scholarship.

 

Respondents are asked to submit a brief abstract addressing one of the roundtable questions listed below. We especially encourage responses that address issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and ability, as well as international perspectives.

To submit a response send a 150-word abstract to flowconference2012@gmail.com by July 13, 2012. In the subject line of the email, please put the title of the roundtable to which you are responding. Be sure to also include your full name, e-mail address, and affiliation in the body of the e-mail.

The question is... how fast?...


So, what are the key points of this shift in user behavior for the traditional TV business?

The only question that's relevant is whether it's available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or iTunes. This means that one of the key traditional "businesses" of TV--the network--is obsolete.


The majority of what we pay our cable company is wasted. We get broadband Internet from our cable company, and we use that constantly. But we also get 500 channels that we almost never watch, along with a couple (HBO, Tennis Channel) that we pay extra for and do watch occasionally.


We rarely watch TV ads, and when we do, we're usually doing something else at the same time--like typing. Also, the ads seem startlingly intrusive, because we're not used to them.
