Apple Does Digital Packaging

Talk from Aspen Live 2007

Anyone who knows me knows I’ve been rambling on and on about digital packaging since 1999, when I realized the Winamp skins we were distributing were not the future of the CD case.

Two Octobers ago I pleaded with the industry to embrace standards before some company interested in platform lock-in developed a proprietary, non-standardized format.

Well, looks like it’s here.

Whee! Three cheers for hegemony!
