I find this piece from the Financial Times fascinating. Who would have thought that the sex industry could be dying? After
all, the porn business used to be the one sure way to get rich. This is a story about technology, rather than sex, and is significant because where porn leads, the mainstream usually follows. The success of VHS was intimately connected with the rise of the global porn business. For the last three to four years it has been evident that DVD market is slowly dying, and what is replacing it is free content delivered online, either by downloading or streaming. This has profound implications for all of us involved in publishing, television, journalism and broadcasting.
