All this week we're talking about the near future of tech. Not clones and robot servants, but what's coming in the next decade. Today we look at what's coming in our own industry: Media. More and more it isn't just a discussion of old forms, but new forms as well -- I know one of my go to news sites these days happens to be Twitter. Kara Swisher, the co-exectuive editor of AllThingsD, says any media company that wants a future needs to be thinking about going mobile in every way.
