Snack-o-tainment from March Wired...

In the March 2007 issue of Wired Magazine, senior editor Nancy Miller coins the term 'snack-o-tainment' to sum-up the trend of people consuming media in smaller doses. The issue's cover highlights this feature coverage, and several of the sidebar items are themselves endless cornucopias of delight, from both the personal and marketing-research perspectives. With big thanks to Wired and contributor Sean Cooper, I hereby present these brilliant diggs. If you have a few minutes to burn and are equipped with one of these devices, enjoy!
