This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This particular segment is our first proof of concept video short. It's not really a trailer, because a trailer is a much more complete promotional short used to give the viewers a feel for the final product. This proof of concept, by contrast, is really just to see how these particular segments would look together; to introduce a few of our interviewees; to show the audience some of the...

This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This series of interviews features Jay Moore, evangelist for Garage Games.com. Jay's interviews are important for the DTP, because people don't buy computers for the operating system, they buy computers to do stuff with them. Like playing games.
