The Countdown for the Extinction of the CD

Dotcom billionnaire Mark Cuban (sold Broadcast.com before the crash) is powerfully explaining the future of popular culture media on his blog ... when he isn't gushing about his basketball team (he owns the NBA Dallas Maverick). In a new post, he starts with the personal and moves to the global perspective to explain why and how CD's will soon be historical artifacts the way LP albums and 45's are today.

Once that first label, or the first organized group of indies goes purely digital at retail, then the countdown for the extinction of the CD begins. T-minus 5 years from that first day, and your CDs will be sitting right next to the LPs your dad and mom collected when they were kids.
