Assume Moore's Law equivalent for: 1. LLM quality 2. Text to video generation quality 3. Apple VR headset resolution / fidelity Seems like infinite content universes eat 80-90% of existing media content consumption?
I don't think infinite content universes work for sports — what makes it interesting is Lindy gladiatorial element + random number generator within a set of conditions.
@balajis had an interesting thought about how in not-so-distant future it will be faster and cheaper to generate the content locally rather than download it from cloud
The exciting part of this for me is for the worlds I love, Star Wars, the Matrix, John Wick, etc, I always want to go deeper into universe and learn about the side stories and characters. Transmedia programming. SW is doing a good job but it’s still all so heroic and maybe I want to learn more about crime and degen.
1. a cambrian explosion of home-made, but almost-pro quality => faster; it's already high now with youtube, but now it'll be ever quicker to convert you idea to video / blob 2. an echo chamber of ideas you "love" => greater divisiveness
We already at the infinite. What matters more is what can be shared. The infinitely lonely won't be enticing over the shared. Tangentially, it means more and more that intent & meaning matters more.
