Winning in the attention economy?

A day of contrast today at the NAB Show in Las Vegas as the doors were flung open on the first day of the Exhibition. 

The floor, as ever, was filled to capacity with crowds marvelling at the latest broadcast technology on offer from all the expected vendors, the usual suspects.

But, will these vendors be the same next year, or in five years time? Or is something stirring in the woods?

Is bigger, better, faster the way. Or do we need to change gear, even change the road we are on?
