Video streaming ain't looming AT ALL until:

a) The Big Telecom Cartel says it is
b) The Big Entertainment Cartel says it is
c) There's enough money to outfit classrooms with the infrastructure to do
something with it all
d) There's a social or political or economic or technological revolution
that makes digital content affordable for the havenot as well as the
well-equipped haves.

Even if video over the web does become a reality, the problem of what gets
streamed and what gets forgotten isn't gonna go away!
