"Nobody wants to use mobile applications! Nobody is interested in interactive television! Nobody is interested in entertaining websites." You can proceed stating such sentences for a long time if you listen to the voice of analysts and other pessimists in these times. Of course, a critical view is necesseary if you work in the convergence industry these days, but have a look at Japan for i-Mode or to the UK for interactive Television.
What are the basics of the success of such new devices? What is the technology behind them? What constraints are there if I want to write concepts for such media? What is the status quo and what will the future look like? The lecture tries to give answers to such questions.
