EPIC 2014

In the year 2014, The New York Times has gone offline.

The Fourth Estate’s fortunes have wanted.

What happened to the news?

And what is EPIC?

In the 10 years or so that I’ve been online one of my favorite activities has become watching the trends in the internet and trying to imagine where we’ll be 10 years or so from now.

EPIC is a flash movie piece which proposes a possible future: A future in which Google and Amazon join together and create a revolutionary content and search system, powerful enough that the Times feels their intellectual property is being infringed on. In 2011 or so the case goes to the Supreme Court and the Times loses.
