In my Spare Time :Running, reading, cooking, agonizing over next ATG column

How/Where Do I See the Industry in Five Years:  I think the industry in five years will be dynamic, with more new types of electronic content, new ways to package content, and new ways to acquire content. I think we will be challenged by how to understand and incorporate end-user software and hardware into our business and service models. We will wonder if doing so will increase our relevance at the expense of our traditional mission and values.
