by David Carr, New York Times
According to Mr. Shirky, consumers expect exactly what they want, when and how they want it. Music sellers, networks and movie studios are adjusting to a new paradigm where the customer is not only always right, but expects to be able to exercise that judgment with a flick of a finger.
