Ah, but what about the social aspects of getting out of the house, to a cinema, or "real" theatre, or, well, wherever? Are we becoming a society of recluses?

Can we integrate the "long tail", blockbusters, home theaters, TiVo, digital delivery [satellite or IP], in-person socializing, and online virtual gatherings?

Maybe add MMORPGames, SecondLife, and other avatar-based online socializing/networking to the mix, and there might be an answer.

I must admit that I haven't been to a movie theatre in almost 20 years. For two reasons: one, they're generally filthy and two, I can't control the volume and cineplexes often have the sound up to migrain inducing levels. ;-) Or maybe I'm just rationalizing becoming a recluse.
