In one of my TCOM classes we watched a futuristic video called EPIC2014.
"The movie is presented from the viewpoint of a fictional "Museum of Media History" in the year 2015. It explores the effects that the convergence of popular News aggregators, such as Google News, with other Web 2.0 technologies like blogging, social networking and user participation may have on journalism and society at large in a hypothesized future. The film popularized the term Googlezon and touches on major privacy and copyright issues raised in this scenario." -Wikipedia

EPIC2014 provides a pretty extensive history of the internet, makes somewhat accurate predictions about the future and some far off ones as well. Shirky talks about the decline of the newspaper and this movie touches on what we discussed in Chapter 2.
