The Future of Themed Entertainment

If you've read any of the older posts on this site, you know I sort of pipe-dream about developing a theme park of my own design. Anyone who is interested in the magic behind the scenes could look at the website Themed, where many articles on "imagineering" are posted.

One of the articles posted is a paraphrase of a speech given by Bob Rogers, and it concerns where the concept of the theme park might be headed in the future. I think it's a very interesting read, talking about Walt's reinvention of the form of entertainment in the 1950's, and how the theme park has digressed to sort of live by the "old" rules again.
