    The image itself looks laid back enough — a 20-year-old man in a hoodie and jeans, walking through New York City. Except that this image is 150 feet tall and pasted on a plaza near the Flatiron Building. Cabs and cars flow around him while pedestrians scamper past. This image, created by TED Prize winner JR, is on the cover of The New York Times Magazine’s “Walking New York” issue this week. For the issue, JR photographed 16 people who arrived in New York within the last 365 days. While living in New York part-time for the past four years, the artist has found himself intrigued…

According to, Earth Day was founded in 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, who called for a “national teach-in on the environment” after witnessing the terrible effects of the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. The first Earth Day brought major actions to the streets of many major U.S. Cities. For fun, check out this vintage newscast from after that first Earth Day. Earth Day went global in…

I was disappointed to see TechCrunch, a publication that I long viewed as being supportive of the start up community, using their pulpit to tear one down. Not only do I think Josh got a lot of the story on Ello wrong, but the dramatic tone of his article was unnecessarily disparaging and that is disappointing. I’m not sure how much Josh uses Ello, but I use it every day and it’s currently my favorite…

    Going it alone in the home entertainment business has never been a good idea. Back in the early days of home video, VHS triumphed over the far-better Betamax primarily because JVC, which designed VHS technology, was willing to license it to other manufacturers. Sony refused to share; only in the late 1980s did the company finally agree to license Betamax to other manufacturers, but by then it was too late: VHS had an overwhelming market share. The home video market grew and prospered regardless of this disharmonious start, but I fear that’s something of an exception. The home video…

    Comcast April 24 officially ended its 14-month attempt to acquire Time Warner Cable for $45.2 billion. The deal, which would have combined the No. 1 and No. 2 cable operators, would have also consolidated much of the nation’s Internet distribution in the hands of one company, according to critics of the transaction. In a statement, Comcast didn’t explain why it ended the acquisition effort, but added there were provisions in place so it could exit the deal, according to CEO Brian Roberts. “Today, we move on.

  • Becoming a Lean Entrepreneur

    Andrea Hill
    11 Apr 2015 | 5:03 am
    The Lean Startup movement has become a popular approach to considering and validating new business opportunities. It focuses on customer discovery and taking an iterative approach to designing and developing the business. Although it’s generally associated with the development of completely new businesses, we are using it at ReadyTalk to identify new areas of business. I believe it combines the best of both worlds: exploring new opportunities while still having the security of a steady paycheck. Actually, some would say that missing out on that drive to turn your first dollar could slow…
  • Why (do?) The Three Horizons Matter

    Andrea Hill
    24 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    In 2000, Consultants from McKinsey & Company, Inc proposed a portfolio management approach known as the Three Horizons. Each of these horizons describes projects at a point of evolution. The premise of the book “The Alchemy of Growth” in which the approach was first described is that an organization must have initiatives in each of the three horizons to ensure long-term success. We used the Three Horizons approach in the Innovation team at LexisNexis, and we have recently started using this vernacular at ReadyTalk. We are coming at it in a descriptive fashion, attempting to…
  • Freemium vs Free Trial

    Andrea Hill
    15 Dec 2014 | 11:14 am
    Both the free trial and the freemium model lower the barrier of entry for prospective new customers. But what is the difference, and when is it appropriate to use one versus the other? The free trial offers users a way to try a full-featured product for a limited period (generally time-based) before requiring them to pay to continue to use the product. The premise is that users need to have proof of the value of the service through usage, and will convert after the experience. At the end of the trial period, all users become either paid users or non-users. The freemium model allows users to…

    Rarely do you see the CEO of a $180 billion company care much about its warehouse workers. But Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos takes a pretty unique approach in providing career help to its employees at the company's fulfillment centers, where Amazon’s orders get packaged and shipped. Since 2012, Amazon has offered a program called “Career Choice,” where the company pays 95% of tuition for its fulfillment and customer service center employees to take courses in non-work related fields, such as airplane mechanics, nursing, and medical lab technologies. And according to Bezos’ annual shareholder…

That was the message, time and time again, at today's second annual Hustle Con event in San Francisco. As you might guess from the name, Hustle Con celebrates the non-technical side of any tech startup — The pluck and grit that can mean the difference between a successful start-up and roadkill.  While the details changed from speaker to speaker, the message was the same: When it comes to getting your first customers, get ready to roll up your…

    In Jeff Bezos' annual letter to Amazon shareholders, the founder and CEO celebrates the fact that the company doesn't have just one profitable side-business, it has three — Amazon Marketplace, Amazon Prime, and now, Amazon Web Services. And it's on the hunt for a fourth.  "Each of these offerings was a bold bet at first, and sensible people worried (often!) that they could not work. But at this point, it’s become pretty clear how special they are and how lucky we are to have them," Bezos says.  Bezos reserves a lot of space in his letter to praise the growth of Amazon Prime, the…

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    This week, news of a new project to install and run bliss on FreeBSD (and FreeNAS). bliss currently has "official" releases for Windows, OS X, Linux and VortexBox. In addition there are a few unofficial packages built for NAS devices, and one HOWTO for Solaris. That meant FreeBSD users were without installation instructions. FreeBSD is important for a number of reasons, one of which is that it is the base OS for the popular FreeNAS distribution. It's also commonly used as a home server OS. So it was without bliss installation instructions... until now that is! This morning I received an email…
  • Two ways to auto tag

    Dan Gravell
    13 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Digital music files contain tags that describe information about the musical contents, alongside the actual audio data. This information includes everything from the song title and the name of the containing release to its year of publication. It is this data that music programs use to organise and categorise musical collections in helpful ways, such as searching by genre or era; without the appropriate data, people cannot make use of these features. If you have a widespread absence of metadata in your music files that, combined with the size of modern music collections, means your music…
  • Lossless streaming versus lossless audio

    Dan Gravell
    6 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    The benefits of lossless audio are much more pronounced when considering locally stored music collections. But that doesn't mean we should decry TIDAL's offering of lossless streaming. The recent high profile launch of TIDAL caused me to think about who benefits from lossless, and in which scenarios. TIDAL offers lossless streaming in its HiFi plan, starting at $19.99 a month (or £19.99 in the UK. I think their currency converter must be buggy). This is a boon to those with high quality audio equipment - finally the benefits of lossless but without the hassle of local storage and…

    A recent email from a bliss user reminded me of the need to cover a topic I'd long considered: FLAC corruption. I'd previously discussed fixing corrupt MP3s and I'd always had it in mind to cover other file formats, but until now I'd deferred this. Writing this up makes all the more sense when you consider that my advice is always to rip to lossless and of the lossless formats, FLAC is my preferred default choice (unless you live in/endure iTunes land, in which case it's Apple Lossless). What could possibly go wrong? Plenty can go wrong. Unnoticed problems during the encoding process…

The main area of work has been in improving the consistency of bliss's internal database, particularly after large scale file renaming. I had a few reports of issues in this area, and I've reworked some fundamental database code to try to avoid said consistency problems. Other improvements in this area are to take positive steps to disallow multiple instances of bliss running, and when a database corruption issue is discovered upon startup make sure bliss is shutdown completely (it sometimes runs in a "zombie" state which makes…

    Many in radio wonder where the next generation of talent is going to come from.  As smaller markets increasingly lean on syndicated programming and other efficiencies, how can radio tap into the largest, emerging generation?  Of course, we know them as Millennials. Some also believe that many young people aren’t interested in radio, and have ventured out into digital media, tech startups, and other fields.  And yet, if radio is to survive and prosper, having initiatives and strategies in place that reach out to this generation would seem to be an imperative.

As both a researcher and a programmer/content creator, I’ve always tried to look at the data two ways. Yes, we should be fascinated by the trends, trajectories, and the stories the data tell us. That’s the researcher in me. But we…

At more than 77 million downloads, Serial has singlehandedly put podcasting back on the radio broadcasting map, spawning many new business plans and lots of homegrown efforts centered around on-demand audio.

And it’s that way on the radio, too. The good news for Classic Rock and Classic Hits stations is that their overwhelmingly strong performance in Nielsen PPM ratings continues.

The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

His graph below shows the difference between the current Beats Music payout and average Spotify payouts (0.428 cents) for the last few years. It is not surprising Beats Music is a higher rate.

    23 Mar 2015 | 1:27 pm
    Lately I’ve read a couple of articles on failing, which have echoed something I’ve felt for some time now. See, I’ve been preaching that failing is no disaster, that as long as we learn from our mistakes we shouldn’t be worried about not getting where we’re aiming to get. What I’m a bit worried about though – and what I’ve seen echoed elsewhere – is the growing notion that it’s become a sort of a badge of honor to fail, that failure can be a goal in itself. ”No biggie, I must’ve learnt something from this right?” There have also been a number of people I’ve talked…

The Netflix original series, House of Cards, is the only series in the last few years that has managed to grip me as much as Games of Throne and Breaking Bad. One of the main reasons for the shows success is the superb central performance from Kevin Spacey (two Oscars, one BAFTA, one Golden Globe) who winds back the years with his brutal depiction of Frank Underwood, a…
