Canaries in the mine

Coming soon in March, Denver Public Library plans to be the first U.S. public library to offer downloadable movies They will be offered from the same site where downloadable eBooks and audio eBooks are offered, and will use a newer version of the Overdrive Media Console and Windows Media Player, Find out more here.
Another nail in the coffin for VHS and DVD.
SirsiDynix Normative Data Project data is showing that DVD passed VHS as the movie format of choice in November/December 2005. I suspect that this next period won’t last too long.
The first streaming movies at Denver PL will be documentaries, self-help and travelogues.
DPL is already getting press in the Denver Post and Rock Mountain News.
