Does Microsoft’s (And Everyone Else’s) Future Media Integration Plans Kill The Indie Producer? Is Felicia Day A Star Or What?

Today as I sat through an amazing presentation by Microsoft that included Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Steven Spielberg and Felicia Day (you can read the details of the Xbox/Zune E3 announcements here), I had to ask myself a single question:

Where is the indie producer in this?

As I look at Hulu’s attempt to kill Boxee earlier this week, I had to ask myself a single question:

Where is the indie producer in this?

As the products for media consumption get “cooler and cooler” (take a look at the Project Natal video – amazing stuff), I can’t but help wonder if it is going to get harder and harder to get yourself inside of the interface.

Last week brought us a few glimpses of the Zune HD interface – and it looks like Podcasting is still in there. There are rumors of Podcasting in iPhone 3.0 allowing video downloads over the air. YouTube remains open for the indie – but that is about it.

How can I (you) get my (your) content into these channels? Should I be trying? If I can’t get in, …

BTW, was thrilled to see Felcia Day on stage – even more so than the Fab 2 (and a director I really haven’t cared for since Close Encounters). She should remind us all that there is room for us in this game if we play our cards right.

Thoughts?
