Raise your hand if you think it will last

A recording industry business model based on selling coasters and sueing college students. Lower your hand if you think they're just stalling until they can figure out an Internet money making scheme.

Clear Channel Communications's dominance of the airwaves. Lower your hand if you think the airwaves are a thing of the past, and Clear Channel is buying all the railroad tracks at bargain basement price.

Blogging as indistinguishable from journalism. Lower your hand if you think big money and lawsuits will bring a division between journalism and creative publishing to the blogsphere.

Bigbuck mainstream artists, music and movies. Lower your hand if you think long tail, 'people who bought ..' and iPod DJs will lead to more variety and a consumer-driven market.

Blogging taking on mainstream media. Lower your hand if you think mainstream media will take on blogging.

Apple's dominance of the MP3 market. Lower your hand if you think a closed platform with fixed pricing is another walled graden.
