I'm not sure I even have a "vision" for content acquisition in the future. I'm content to explore what this new thing, digital distribution, has to offer. But by all means, people should be continuing to explore "traditional" means of everything: music production, marketing, distribution, even performance.

The tape "killed" vinyl, the CD "killed" tape, digital online distribution "killed" the CD--none of these are true, because nothing is dead. Vinyl changed to become an actual means of making music. Ever hear Kid Koala? He's my favorite turntablist.

This isn't really an aswer to your question, I know, because I don't truly have one, I don't know the future and don't want to stake any claims just now. But I do know what happens is almost always more surprising and more wonderful than people think.
