Cinema on demand

While simultaneously feeding body and mind, I found this gem on M2M. In short, even theaters won't need physical media anymore, opening up the cinema experience to the long tail.

From a technology perspective, I like the use of WiMax here. More interesting to me is the social aspect, which is the biggest difference between cinema and home viewing. The idea of my group being able to see perhaps our favorite film even though it's been out for 20 years in a cinema environment rather than stuffed into someone's den is very appealing. I could see corporate teambuilding sort of activity generating a lot of on-demand business.
