    And they thought cable was dead…well it is…kind of…at least as a bundled content package… …but everything is now migrating OTT… …and content is king…giving those little guys a huge opportunity. Think about all of the little cable channels you never heard of. Niche networks serving niche audiences with specific programming that never got the time of day. They were buried under an endless and unsearchable cable menu that numbered in the thousands and most of them never had a shot at national distribution. Enter YouTube and the digital revolution.

    Having had a few weeks now to spend significant time exploring Flickr 4.0, I thought I’d write up another more detailed post about my ongoing thoughts on the recent update by Flickr. 1. Autotagging. Autotagging has received a mixed reception by the Flickr community as well as the broader press. Initially a lot of the Flickr diehards have very vocally opposed it. On the one hand, every time Flickr makes any change whatsoever a certain segment of the community will vocally oppose it no matter what the change is. The “who moved my cheese” crowd is strong and vocal at Flickr, so…

    Lots of happenings in the TED community this week. Below, some highlights. Police on trial in Afghanistan. This week, Kimberley Motley represented the family of Farkhunda, a 27-year-old woman who was brutally murdered, in an Afghan court against 19 policemen who are accused of standing by while she was set on fire, run over and then thrown into the Kabul River. The trial, which is being broadcast live across Afghanistan, includes cell phone footage taken at the scene, “To see this young lady in a sea of men being abused and beaten and no one doing anything,” Motley says, “and to watch…

    Paula Johnson’s talk at TEDWomen 2013 gave attendees a new appreciation of why it’s so important to include women — and female animals and female cells —in medical research. Photo: TED “Women’s health is an equal rights issue as important as equal pay.” When Paula Johnson uttered this sentence on the TEDWomen 2013 stage, the audience broke into spontaneous applause. “At that moment, it said to me they got it,” she says. Johnson has been working for decades to raise awareness about how diseases behave differently in women and in men — and calling out how…

On Tuesday night, five speakers in TED’s New York office shared a salon that explored the hidden opportunities, truths and humor in these split-second assumptions. First up, NYU associate professor Adam Alter showed how exploiting a simple human trait could actually make us more generous. “We like things that remind of us of ourselves,” he says. There’s no shame in that — it’s why so many humans look like…

    I’m a big fan of the new Flickr. Despite a few bumps along the way, like last weekend’s uploading fiasco, it feels like a new fresher Flickr and I think the fact that people can download their photos now in bulk will be a wonderful way to attract new talent to the site. There are two little things that bug me about Flickr right now though. They are unimportant in the big picture of things, but the compulsive side of me tends to focus on the little things sometimes. The first is the artifacting that takes place around icon that tells you if a photo is favorited or not or commented…
  • Flickr Users Unable to Upload Photos All Weekend Long While Flickr Staffers Take the Weekend Off

    Thomas Hawk
    11 May 2015 | 6:12 am
    Usually I publish photographs to Flickr twice a day, in the morning and in the evening — random batch of 16 photos in the a.m. and in the p.m. This morning I cannot upload a single photo. For the entire weekend I have not been able to batch upload to Flickr at all and have resorted to uploading photos one by one by one with consistent upload failure with each new attempt. If this were happening at Facebook, it would be the top story on Techmeme — but because it’s just Yahoo and Flickr, it doesn’t get that sort of attention. It’s not just me that this is happening…
  • Today’s New Version of Flickr Implements Bulk Downloading of Your Photos — Your Photos Really Do Belong to You

    Thomas Hawk
    7 May 2015 | 9:03 am
    Today Flickr is launching a number of new improvements to their service. I’ll review what they are in this post, but in my mind the most significant change coming today is that Flickr is introducing the ability for you to bulk download your photos from their site. I’ve been critical of Flickr in the past over the inability to easily get your photos back out of the service. While not a silo, Flickr’s never made it exactly easy to get your photos back after you upload them. You’ve always been able to download your photos on a photo by photo basis, but for someone with a…

    Mike Clark
    25 May 2015 | 2:59 pm
    Available via Warner Archive Warner Drama $21.99 DVD Not rated. Stars Van Heflin, Marsha Hunt, Lee Bowman. Fred Zinnemann’s modest 1942 debut feature turned out notably well on a ‘B’ budget, and it couldn’t have hurt the reception that the picture’s lead actor had just won an Oscar about a month before its director’s big break went into release. This is the dominant reason Zinnemann’s crafty quickie rewards a look today — as it did, just for the record, on my first viewing in 1959 at age 11 or 12 when its then still offbeat story hook also…

To appease anyone about to wave a red flag, I’m aware that those in the know much better than I continue to note that this one’s official title at the time of its 1963 release was simply X — and that the rest was only added for the newspaper ads that distributor American International Pictures concocted. Yet given what the 24th letter of the alphabet has come to connote not just in the movie industry but just about everywhere else, you can see why the…

    The May 2 Showtime pay-per-view fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao may not have proved to be the most engaging live event ever, but it certainly made a bit of history in live Web broadcasting. As the fight took place on pay-per-view, with many potential viewers fighting the rush in PPV traffic rather than watching a fight, Periscope members broadcast the event live from their cell phones. The Periscope service, which offers live streaming, shut down those “broadcasts” as soon as they were nabbed for piracy, according to Periscope executives. But the point…

    Netflix appears to have an insatiable appetite for original content. Speaking earlier this month at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit in New York, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos attributed much of Netflix’s 20% year-over-year subscriber engagement hike to the success of original shows such as “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black.” The percentage of its total acquisition budget that Netflix spends on original programming keeps shooting upward; on an earnings call last month, chief financial officer David Wells said…

  • The next big thing in digital content…those little cable channels you never heard of.

    22 May 2015 | 10:44 am
    And they thought cable was dead…well it is…kind of…at least as a bundled content package… …but everything is now migrating OTT… …and content is king…giving those little guys a huge opportunity. Think about all of the little cable channels you never heard of. Niche networks serving niche audiences with specific programming that never got the time of day. They were buried under an endless and unsearchable cable menu that numbered in the thousands and most of them never had a shot at national distribution. Enter YouTube and the digital revolution.

  • Is #VR our new reality?

    Jared Hendler
    17 Feb 2015 | 11:12 am
    Let me get a bit esoteric for a minute. We hunger for things that have the promise to transform us. Our search for meaning has always led us to want to understand the origin of life itself. We use science and technology to play creator in order to get us closer to the answer. Advancements in computing, artificial intelligence and robotics are all a part of that search but nothing brings us closer to being a creator of our own reality than Virtual Reality. After many false starts, the VR industry is finally taking hold as the largest companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Samsung,…
  • Waking up to meditation instead of technology.

    Jared Hendler
    11 Jan 2015 | 10:08 pm
    Far too many of us start our day, while still in bed, by reaching for our phones. What might start out as a lazy, luxurious excercise of checking the weather, news or our social feeds, soon turns into text and email…and just like that we project ourselves into the middle of our fast-paced, never-ending to-do-list of a day…body tense and heart pounding before a foot steps from the warm comforter onto the floor. For the past month I have changed this by stepping into meditation. I started by training my mind as I wake up to first be grateful for a good nights sleep before stepping…
  • Rising Stars! Digital Celebrities Rewrite the Rules of Fame.

    22 Dec 2014 | 5:53 pm
    It used to be that celebrity sat atop a pedestal, protected behind managers, publicists and their sacred talent agency walls. Celebrity was the product of scarcity, traditionally out of reach of their audience outside of the occasional sighting on ‘E’, People or Us magazine. But a new crop of celebrity, born out of digital – not so long ago laughed at – but now revered, is crossing over into the inner sanctum as they surpass their traditional peers. The New Celebrity thrives on abundant, open access and that is exactly what they cultivate as they connect and communicate…

    Classical Dance. An art on the short list for extinction if it cannot be made relevant to the next generation. So much a reality that the industry formed Center for Ballet and the Arts just for the sake of finding new ways to connect with new audiences. Like most of the performing arts, patronage has traditionally happened via stage performance and while that may remain the primary means for now, other mediums are necessary and essential for survival. Want proof?…look at the music industry – dessimated by their suspicion of new technology and a fear to adapt. Television and Film…

    Back in 2001, Andy Wilson and Sheng Yang were working at a Washington, DC, print shop frequented by lawyers, banks, and real estate firms.  Their speciality was in helping lawyers with what legal types call "discovery," or the process of sifting through e-mails and documents to find things relevant to the case at hand. At that point, discovery was done by literally printing out every possible relevant e-mail for attorneys to sift through.  That print shop got tapped to print the emails for the landmark 2001 Microsoft antitrust case.

    If you’re like me, you probably take lots of pictures with your phone. Organizing thousands of images can feel overwhelming. Apple has tried to makes this a seamless process with the introduction of iCloud and the new Photos app. As convenient as it is to automatically upload all your images to the cloud, Apple’s service has one glaring omission. You can not delete individual pictures. It’s an all or nothing solution. So I’ve created my own workflow.

  • Solving music file and tag inconsistencies

    Dan Gravell
    18 May 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Even in these days of streaming, plenty of music lovers still store their collection, or parts of their collection, locally as computer audio files. Importantly, metadata stored inside the resulting audio files identifies the music, but inconsistencies can arise between internal metadata and the names of the audio files. How can you fix this and keep it fixed? Metadata is important. It is the way that the otherwise anonymous audio files in your music collection are identified, categorised and classified. Without metadata your music collection is near impossible to browse, search and playlist.

  • A PPM Lesson…From Howard Stern

    Fred Jacobs
    21 May 2015 | 3:10 am
    If you know your radio history, you probably recall that among his many wise career moves, Howard Stern got out of broadcast radio before the advent of PPM. His exodus to Sirius in 2005 was about a year before meters became the currency of radio ratings. But that can’t stop “The King of All Media” from weighing in on what it takes to keep audiences riveted – getting them through commercial stopsets (and Stern’s were notoriously long). In an article in The New York Times about David Letterman’s swan song, Stern talked about how the “Late Night’s” perennial #2…

    A few years ago, we put a spin on our Techsurvey mission. In the early years, the guiding principle behind these massive nationwide web surveys was to determine what radio listeners are doing when they’re not listening to the radio. As satellite radio, streaming, smartphones, and social media proliferated, getting a handle on how audiences are informing and entertaining themselves has helped radio better understand how the media culture is changing. But in recent years, we’ve introduced the corollary question: With all the new media options, why do consumers still choose to listen to…

    The news of blues legend B.B. King’s passing last week brought back a torrent of memories for a music icon I have long admired. While I had always passively enjoyed his music, it wasn’t until I saw him live in 1979 at Chicago’s Park West with fellow consultant Alan Burns that I realized what an amazing performer the man born as Riley B. King truly was. Ironically, I went back home to Detroit only to discover that King was booked at a club embedded in the Dearborn Hyatt Regency – so I saw him play again that weekend. Over the years, I came to enjoy B.B. King concerts, saddened only…

  • How pay-per-view helps churches connect to Millennials

    19 May 2015 | 4:42 am
    Church attendance has been on the decline and the stats are alarming. According to the Barna Group’s research, 156 million U.S. residents are currently not engaged with a Christian church. To put it into perspective, if that number were to relate to population of a country, then it would be the 8th most populous country in the world. It’s predicted that in 2015, more than 10,000 churches will close due to declining attendance. This trend holds true especially among Millenials: 80 percent of 14-33 year-olds find church unimportant in their lives. Further, nearly one third of the…

  • Apple Positioning To Dominate Streaming Music

    4 May 2015 | 8:52 pm
    The Department Of Justice is rumored to be looking into Apple’s business practices concerning streaming music. Why would the DOJ be investigating? According to The Verge, Apple has been pushing the music labels to remove the free tier from streaming services. As Spotify negotiates to renew their licenses with music labels, Apple is lobbying music labels to not include a license for a free music tier anymore. If successful, this would greatly reduce the competition when Apple releases the new Beats Music. To date, Spotify is the most successful streaming service with 60 million users. 15…

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…

    Simon Staffans
    22 May 2015 | 3:15 am
    I’ve had a number of epiphanies over the past few days, mostly because I’ve spent almost every waking hour of those days in the company of a lot of highly intelligent and creative people in the form of the participants of the 2015 version of F/S (ForwardSlashStory). Among those epiphanies a couple stood out, however, one of them coming after having had a discussion about how to address your own work and your own productions. As I presented some of the things I’ve been working on, I felt more clearly than ever before that the projects that were my own were the ones that meant something…

    As I wrote earlier, I’ve been working for a couple of different organizations helping them analyze projects and transmedia projects in particular over the past month. Looking beyond the debate (which has faded quite significantly, perhaps to the current non-buzzwordiness of the term) about what exactly should be considered ”transmedia”, some things have jumped out at me time and time again while reading projects plans and proposals, and interviewing the people behind them. Many have great ideas, good solid foundations for their projects. Many have a passion about what they are doing or…

My mission was to help some projects a little bit further along the way to fruition. The projects were many and varied, ranging from the very much we’re-just-starting-this-idea-up-right-now to the ones that have been in the works for years and have many things already solidly in place. Thus, they all had different needs and different challenges and issues to tackle. Some…
  • The good and bad of failing

    Simon Staffans
    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…

I’ve taken part of all the different discussions on what transmedia really is and what it’s not, I had the privilege of attending the first Storyworld conference in San Fransisco (probably the best conference I’ve ever been at, in hindsight) and I’ve been blogging and interviewing about transmedia ever since.

    Politics is often known to be scandalous, however I never thought a drama related to politics could be so intense that it would leave me binging for hours on end as soon as the new season is finally released onto Netflix. 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…

    Marketing is thinking beyond money. When you start designing your marketing strategy on this note, then deriving marketing goals and tactics become easy and achieving those goals becomes a believable job. Another important aspect of good marketing is authenticity. Your product can be the best in the world but it will go waste if you are unable to connect with people. You have to treat your customers and team like real people and establish a strong connection that they choose you from the existing clutter of similar products. That is what exactly holds true for digital marketing as well.
