"Victory, I am free!" Fist up in the air, weev, Andrew Auernheimer, laughed. Last week, Aurenheimer was released after serving 14 months in federal prison.
Telling stories across multiple media forms, tapping the strengths of each, offers the potential to develop meaningful stories in much deeper and more engaging ways.
Big media tries to ease its headaches through big lawsuits, but that strategy has backfired. A couple of suits, against Sony's Betamax and Cablevision's network DVR, resulted in landmark decisions against media companies and in favor of viewers.
