Ben Kunz on Apple's Potential for Saving Publishing: Now in Technicolor™!

Ben Kunz, who did the Five Minutes With... segment for our "Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms" episode, turned his cameo into a visual manifesto with witty subtitles and music saturated in foreboding.

What we like about Ben is his special way of looking at hype from a critical perspective -- not just to be a contrarian, but because he accounts for both the history of Apple and the trajectory of industries similar to publishing. It's wrapped up all nice, swaddled in logic, and you sit there wondering why you never saw it before.

Give it a watch and decide whether he's right. We've got thoughts on this, but by now it should be clear we like to save those until we're compromised by a stimulant or abject boredom.
