Sure, right now alot of us are thrilled by the method of deliver -- I'm
currently one who is always exploring how to get things delivered to my
phone or Archos device. But inevitably, once the initial thrill of being
able to receive content anywhere subsibes, it's still the quality of content
I'm most interested in.
That said, I find it exceptionally interesting when the artist experiments
with the new technology/delivery means in ways that make even the delivery
itself interesting. You'll perhaps recall Joe's interview with a mime --
aired on the radio! Classic.
