Life and death in the App Store | The Verge
[ land grab and winner takes all environment, the long-tail is not what it was supposed to be promised by some ] 'the app store resembles now a lottery' [...] Today, profiting from the App Store most often requires a mix of in-app purchases, subscriptions, and advertising. [...] Meanwhile, a fatigue is setting in among customers. There are now more than 1.5 million apps in the App Store (Android users have 1.6 million to choose from), but by 2014, the majority of Americans were downloading zero apps per month. And it turns out people simply don’t use most of the apps they do download. According to ComScore, the average person spends 80 percent of their time on mobile devices using only three apps.

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

Spare Me Your Sh*tty Advertising - YouTube
"advertising business model doesn't make sense." for publishers! Business insider makes 50cent per user per year. ARPU. OUCH! It's like worse than brand awareness banner advertising.

Networks and the Nature of the Firm — The WTF Economy — Medium
“publish, then filter” - Clay Shirky. >> It is fundamentally an open-ended network in which filtering and curation (otherwise known as “management”) happens largely after the fact. [ Twitter lacks a management/curation feature, has to overcome its once cheered differentiator of no curating nor using algorithms to make sense of the noise one subscribed to. ] [...] [ Replacing knowledgeable workers, sales person, support staff, with software. ] One way to think about the new generation of on-demand companies, such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb, is that they are networked platforms for physical world services, which are bringing fragmented industries into the 21st century in the same way that ecommerce has transformed retail. [...] This fragmented industry [Taxi] provides work not just for drivers but for managers, dispatchers, maintenance workers, and bookkeepers.

The Shazam Effect - The Atlantic
"“Because the most-popular songs now stay on the charts for months, the relative value of a hit has exploded. The top 1 percent of bands and solo artists now earn 77 percent of all revenue from recorded music, media researchers report. And even though the amount of digital music sold has surged, the 10 best-selling tracks command 82 percent more of the market than they did a decade ago. The advent of do-it-yourself artists in the digital age may have grown music’s long tail, but its fat head keeps getting fatter.”" &! http://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/382837/who-made-pop-music-so-repetitive-you-did/ &! http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/revenue-streams?currentPage=all &! http://www.katinkahesselink.net/his/influence-theosophy.html &! http://ma.tt/2014/11/science-of-hits/

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? http://youtu.be/SDPasRas5u0 Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream.

BBC News - I meet Tumblr whizz-kid David Karp
curation is a new, more accessible way to express yourself.

"We used to have a text blurb on our networks, the Geocities - a blank slate you hacked together; then MySpace where you had more structure but you could still hack it to pieces: it was ugly, but it was still very personal, if a little janky looking. Then we got Facebook and we left all that behind, everybody had the same vanilla page, in a big directory of other people."

MySpace went big, was bought by Rupert Murdoch and then declined. Facebook killed MySpace, went public at what looks like a massively over-valued price, and now faces big questions about how it will make money going forward.

Tumblr - and its rival "curating" platforms - are one clue as to what might, one day, if this is even thinkable, kill Facebook. Facebook, to me, is increasingly like a family living room at Christmas in the 1970s, with a lot of people I am supposed to be polite and friendly to.
