This edited collection examines time and its relationship to and impact upon media industries, studying how the media industry views time and makes business and economic decisions based on considerations of time. Contributions from an international set of authors analyze time constraints and competition between different media; the quantity and quality of time spent in media consumption, audience and readership time valuation/costing/pricing; and the emergence of new media businesses around individual time management.
Specific topics examined in the volume include:
• a philosophical look at the concept of time and its application to media markets;
• temporal aspects of media distribution for the media industries, and how time affects their activities;
• the impact of increasing media industry consolidation and convergence on managerial effectiveness;
• approaches to time by CNN and its various cache of news channels, in a managerial context;
• the application of niche theory as a framework to examine competition between the Internet and television;
• Internet access in the United Kingdom and Europe, examining the cost of time for online access;
• the exchange of time and money in the television market for advertising; and
• a summary of research and an agenda for future research on the topic of time's role in the media industry and markets.
With its origins in the third World Media Economics conference, held in 2000, Time and Media Markets is a distinctive and important collection appropriate for scholars and advanced students in media management and economics.

"I'm Aline; ranked #1 Keeper Hunter." She said, smiling. Blake ignored her, eyes focused on Genevieve. He slowly walked over, dragging a chair with him. <p> Numb. Why does she feel numb? She pondered this, hearing footsteps and voices, but seeing nothing. She shifted uncomfortably, finally opening them slightly. She tried sitting up; she was so stiff. She groaned when she saw the plaster across her ankle; there were bandages everywhere. She looked around. Where was she? She noticed there was a quite chunky lady; and there were cots, one bearing a barbie-like figure. She rolled her eyes, laying back down. She then glanced at Blake, who was slumped forward in a chair, stirring slightly. He then opened his eyes, smiling when he saw her. "How are you?" Blake suddenly broke her train of thought; she scoffed at him. "What?" He asked, chuckling. "I was trying to think..." She said darkly, still staring at the women laying in the cot. He followed her gaze, then turned back to Genevieve. "That's Aline. Beware; she always brags about being the #1 ranked Keeper Hunter." He said, rolling his eyes dramatically. She laughed at this, shifting her gaze to look at him. He had bags under his eyes, and his clothing was raw and bloody. "Oh my g<_>od, Blake, you look..." She stopped. "I know." He said, brushing his fingers through his hair self-cousiously. "I waited all night for you to wake up." He replied. "And kinda forgot to change." He said, chuckling. He then stood, glancing back at her. "I'll be right back." He said, brushing his fingers against her cheek; he placed a few strands of hair behind her ear, walking away. She lifted her hand to her cheek where he had touched her; it felt tingly. A few minutes later, Blake came back in, wearing a black tshirt, baggy jeans, and...had he washed his face? She asked herself, noticing a few water droplets on his chin. He sat next to her, not saying anything for a while. "So, this is where Physons and Keeper Hunters stay in order to be safe from Keepers. It's called 'P and KH Sanctuary.'" He then chuckled. "If you ask me, they should have come up with a more creative name." He said, staring into her eyes. She laughed, then winced. "You ok?" He asked, taking her hand in a gentle manner. "Everything hurts..." She said, wincing again. His gaze softned, letting go of her hand. She winced again; this time surprised; why did he let go? His hand was warm; and comforting. The click of high heels clack across the wooden floor inturrupted her thoughts; it was Aline. "You must be..." "Genevieve." Blake answered, still staring at Genevieve. "Oh.Hello, Genevieve. I'm Aline, the-" Blake cut her off. "#1 ranked Keeper Hunter here. Ya, Aline, we know." She scoffed. "Of course, he has to have mind reading..." She said, pouting at him.; she was twirling her hair and batting her eyes. Ugh....Genevieve was suddenly angry at this, narrowing her eyes. She pondered getting revenge; Aline was staring at her; had she asked her a question? "I'm sorry, what was that?" She asked, anger welling when she heard Aline mumble 'Not quite the listener, is she?' to Blake."I said: What's your power?" She asked, annoyed. "Telekinesis." She replied, demonstrating with the glass, watching it pour onto Aline's head. "Ahhh! Not funny!" She shrieked; glaring at her. -That's for flirting with Blake.- She thought, an alarming thought rushing through her mind; it ran her blood cold: Blake's power is mind reading. <p> Oh Sh<_>it. ~**~MoonLight~**~Was this review helpful?
