Lunch Break

The music sounds like the sort of thing the W hotel pumps through its lobby, but this Economist video on the changing media landscape -- and the tidal flood of information -- is striking.

It's an amazing time to be alive.

Two millions toilets in bathrooms? I mean, I guess I believe it, but good god, that's disgusting.

I also find it hard to swallow that a typical teenager sends 75 text messages a day, but what can you do?

The video says the mobile device will be the primary connection tool to the internet in 2020. That is not very ambitious. That's 11 years from now. 11 years ago, in 1998, not many people would have predicted how nearly every coffee shop in (urban) America would have broadband wifi for their notebook-toting customers by 2004.

I'd be surprised if the mobile device isn't the primary connection to the internet by 2012, and replaced by something else already by 2020.
