The collapse of the old

I've just read a very interesting article by Clay Sharky "The Collapse of Complex Business Models". His general argument feels sound and its specific object, the television industry, looks to me like an industry about to undergo violent reconfiguration. Whereas the music industry seems to be returning to the staple business model of the past - live performance* - television can't return to being cinema.
