1. A media management system comprising:
at least one vector adapted to present a primary digital content;
a controller, comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, wherein:
the memory stores information identifying:
a plurality of digital content suitable for presentation via the at least one vector;
an identifier associated with the at least one vector;
user-specific preference information indicative of digital content and vector preferences;
user-specific password information;
user-specific identification information, and
a syntax for interpreting user commands; wherein the at least one processor is adapted to:
receive from at the least one user a representation of a command conforming to the stored syntax, wherein the command is indicative of at least one of the plurality of digital content; and
identify, based, at least in part, upon the received user command and the information stored in the memory, at least one of the plurality of digital content to be presented and the vector for said presentation;
wherein the at least one processor is adapted to:
execute at least one pre-configured routine to retrieve from the memory user-specific information, comprising at least a user-specific password, required to access the identified at least one of the plurality of digital content to be presented;
utilize the retrieved user-specific information to access the identified at least one of a plurality of digital content to be presented; and
present the at least one identified digital content upon the identified vector, based, at least in part, upon the primary digital content.
