06cover060213_150.jpgRunning aroud the Austin Convention Center here this weekend at the concurrent SXSW film and interactive conferences, I ran into Peter Rojas (pictured right) arguably the most important new technology blogger (writing and editing the influential Engadget.com)...

More often than not, he said that he watches movies on portable devices (either a laptop computer or smaller personal player) and wonders when the film business will develop a system for distributing films that mirrors the way the music business has embraced emerging platforms. Rojas told me that he gets his most of his music via the Rhapsody subscription service and, rifling through his messenger bag filled with gadgets and cables, showed off an iRiver player that he uses for his music. With all the debate about day and date, collapsing windows and VOD, its interesting to hear about how many people actually watch movies today...I have a feeling Rojas' habits are consistent with the way that many younger folks are consuming content.
