Are We Doing Multimedia?
October/December 2003 (vol. 10 no. 4)
pp. 112, 111
Ramesh Jain, Georgia Institute of Technology

Here's another thought to ponder. When television first appeared, the radio industry believed that it was doomed to fail because they thought nobody would be glued to a silly screen. It was audio, according to them, that conveyed all the information that people really cared for.
