I'm off again to the Sony Open Forum tomorrow. It's an annual event. The main event is Sony's sponsorship of a golf tournament, but there is also a small forum where Chairman Idei invites executives of Sony and several other people to discuss some of the key topics for the year. Last year I was invited to speak about the future of Japan. This year I'm going to be talking about media consumption and the future of media. My talk will kick off a discussion session. The conference itself is not public, but I'm assuming my comments are. I've put my talking notes on my wiki and Kevin Marks, Roger Wood and danah boyd have contributed some thoughts on a page about media consumption. The actual talk isn't for a few more days so any thoughts you might have would be greatly appreciated. Please add them to the wiki. Thanks!

Next time you're getting jarred with Idei-san, would you ever tell him to stop installing all that rubbish software on those Crusoe laptops he makes. The chip runs slow enough as it is, and all the bells and whistles that run at boot-time turn the whole thing into treacle. Then I have to crawl through the Windows registry trying to stop them from running.
