News media in the year 2002 (1998)

A future scenario made in 1998, when the news media knew that the Internet was going to mean something to them -- but not what it was going to mean. Key ideas in the video were hyperlocal news production (similar to news blogs, even though that concept was not around at the time) and personalized news consumption.

We were wrong about voice-controlled kitchen displays and living-room table keyboards for the digital TV, but fairly right about smartphones and citizen journalism blogs.
