Wired takes the videosnacks meme and busts it wide open, proclaiming on its cover: Snack Culture! I first read the metaphor describing online videos as snacks (in contrast to the full meals that are TV shows and movies) in this November interview with the CEO of Brightcove. Now Wired is applying it to everything that has gotten shorter or smaller, from music and web apps to TV shows (mobisodes, say) and celeb gossip. Even t-shirts are snacks now. Bon appetit.
