There are several articles touching on this subject at:

The article, "Media Banks: Entertainment and the Internet" is
specifically on this subject. All of these articles are from the IBM
Systems Journal Vol. 35, Nos. 3&4, 1996. This is the MIT Media Lab

It looks like IBM is putting every one of their journal articles online.
They are well worth reading.
