Disney's Bob Iger brought Matthew Fox and Evangaline Lilly along to the 2007 CES to talk about lost. According to the Ottowa Citizen
a great part of that conversation, appropriately enough for CES, centered on the impact the show had in its multimedia ventures. Iger went as far as to say: ABC created this worldwide phenomena called Lost, It has become the most successful multi-platform show ever. ABC.com has been overrun with fans coming to watch podcasts, discuss the show or view full length episodes."
Evangaline Lilly expressed some intimidation over the rampant fan following on the net, stating that the producers keep an eye on the fan community to figure out where to go next with the show.
"We are really at the mercy of the fans. Producers go online to look at what is being said and they react to that." Lilly said.
