Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

Why Everyone Must Get Ready For The 4th Industrial Revolution
For example, as automation increases, computers and machines will replace workers across a vast spectrum of industries, from drivers to accountants and estate agents to insurance agents. By one estimate, as many as 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk from automation. Many experts suggest that the fourth industrial revolution will benefit the rich much more than the poor, especially as low-skill, low-wage jobs disappear in favor of automation.

But this isn’t new. Historically, industrial revolutions have always begun with greater inequality followed by periods of political and institutional change. The industrial revolution that began at the beginning of the 19th century originally led to a huge polarization of wealth and power, before being followed by nearly 100 years of change including the spread of democracy, trade unions, progressive taxation and the development of social safety nets.

Börsenpläne von Spotify: Der Sound der Zocker
Eine Milliarde Dollar (880 Millionen Euro) leiht sich der Musikdienst laut "Wall Street Journal" bei Finanzinvestoren und der Großbank Goldman Sachs. Spotify verspricht den Geldgebern neben Zinszahlungen auch Anteile am Unternehmen. Wie viel Spotify zahlen muss und in welcher Größenordnung Anteile den Besitzer wechseln, hängt davon ab, wann die Schweden an die Börse gehen. Mit jedem Halbjahr, in dem das Start-up die Erstemission herauszögert, wird es jedenfalls teurer.

Das macht den Deal hochriskant für Spotify: Von Profitabilität ist der Dienst weit entfernt, 2014 fuhr der Dienst einen Verlust von 162 Millionen Euro ein. Die neuen Schulden könnten das Unternehmen in einen ruinösen Strudel von schrumpfenden Geldreserven, drückender Zinslast und immer mieseren Börsenaussichten reißen.

Matrix director Lilly Wachowski comes out as trans - BBC Newsbeat
"It began to dawn on me where I had heard of the Daily Mail. It was the 'news' organization that had played a huge part in the national public outing of Lucy Meadows, an elementary school teacher and trans woman in the UK.
"Now here they were, at my front door, almost as if to say - there's another one. Let's drag 'em out in the open so we can all have a look.
"We continue to be demonized and vilified in the media... We are not predators, we are prey."
The founder of LGBTQ charity RUComingOut, Wayne David, has reacted to the news, tweeting: "The Daily Mail journalist who tried to force Lilly Wachowski to come out as trans should be truly ashamed."

Jenny Beavan’s Oscars outfit struck a blow for all women | Laura Bates | Opinion | The Guardian
This was not the first stand taken against the reduction of women in the industry to their clothes and jewellery. The past few years have seen Elisabeth Moss give the middle finger to the “mani-cam” at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett demand: “Do you do that to the guys?” as a camera panned up and down her body on the red carpet, and a series of women from Reese Witherspoon to Amy Poehler demand that reporters ask them more than questions about their frocks. We’ve also seen the actress and singer Zendaya speak out about racist responses to her dreadlocks at the Oscars, and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy design her own dresses after designers refused to dress her, proving that Hollywood’s incredibly narrow definition of beauty is discriminatory on the basis of size and race. [...] find themselves pitted against each other in excruciating “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists, the awards season will continue to provide a high-profile, glossy microcosm of wider prejudice.

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.

Pando: Pandora the TiVo-esque tragic hero?
Perhaps we’re only allowed to have one publicly traded Internet music company at a time. Pandora beat extreme odds to survive long enough, and well enough, to make it to an IPO, than. And then almost immediately things started to go wrong. A $7 billion market cap has dwindled to just north of $1 billion-- a fraction of Spotify’s private valuation. The New York Times broke a story yesterday that it was in talks to sell itself, halting trading for part of the day. There was no speculation on who the buyer might be. Pandora may go down in Silicon Valley history as a TiVo-esque hero

SoundCloud to seek more funding in 2016 - FT.com
SoundCloud will need to raise more money in the next 12 months to stay in business, according to the music streaming service’s latest financial statements. The lossmaking company, which has 175m monthly listeners, reported that in the year to the end of December 2014 it made a loss of €39m on revenues of €17m. KPMG, SoundCloud’s auditor, said in the report that the need for additional funding represented “a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern”. However, SoundCloud said that its directors were “confident” in their ability to raise sufficient equity funding this year to continue operating ... //&!

No Expensie Brands. Everything canned or else. No fresh produce. // Stelios Haji-Ioannou opens easyFoodstore with 25p offer. EasyJet founder takes on supermarkets with discount grocery store in north-west London // There can’t be many customers in this shop – or anywhere – who remember easyCinema, easy4Men, easyMoney, easyInternetCafe, easyMusic or easyCruise. But despite some of the nags that flopped at the first hurdle, the brand has endured, thanks largely to easyJet. The airline Haji-Ioannou founded – and in which he still has a 35% stake – paid him £77m in dividends last year and also provided the lion’s share of the £13.2m turnover easyGroup made by licensing use of its brand.

Jan Kregel: The Continuing Risk of Derivatives - YouTube
The other common feature that Kregel notes is that the major objective of active, global financial institutions no longer is the maximization of profits by seeking the lowest cost funds and channeling them to the highest risk-adjusted return. Rather, they are most interested in maximizing the amount of funds intermediated in order to maximize fees and commissions, thereby maximizing the rate of return on bank capital. This means a shift from continuous risk assessment and risk monitoring of funded investment projects that produce recurring flows of interest payments over time, to the identification of riskless "trades" that produce large, single payments with as much of the residual risk as possible carried by the purchasers of the package. The upshot is that most derivative packages mask the actual risk involved in an investment and increase the difficulty in assessing the final return on funds provided.

Donald Trump and Isis both benefit from a powerful fuel: our fear | Arie W Kruglanski | Opinion | The Guardian
The Republican presidential frontrunner and Islamic State both know how to exploit the fear and uncertainty so prevalent today and skillfully cultivate it [...] All these factors jolt people out of their comfort zones and foster existential anxieties that spawn yearnings for order and predictability. They privilege simplistic concepts that lack nuance and lend significant edge to leaders who talk tough and offer what psychologists call “closure”.

Interview ǀ „Man muss entscheiden – wie Luke Skywalker“ — der Freitag
Interview Die Vikare Ulrike Garve und Lucas Ludewig entdecken in Star Wars viele christliche Motive. Die wollen sie in einem Gottesdienst in Berlin aufgreifen [...] die wichtigen Fragen anzusprechen, um die es in dem Film geht: Zum Beispiel, wie gehen wir mit einem Imperium um? [...] Das Gute und Böse? Ludewig: Zum Beispiel diese Dialektik. Wie geht man damit um, dass man von der Sünde befreit ist, aber ja weiter fehlerhaft durchs Leben läuft. Die Situation, die Luke Skywalker im Film erlebt, betrifft uns alle. Wir sind nicht per se böse oder gut, wir müssen uns entscheiden, was wir sein wollen. Luke weiß, dass es einen dunklen Teil in ihm gibt. Er macht eine Entwicklung durch – und entscheidet sich, seinen Vater nicht zu töten, also böse zu sein. Er wirft sein Lichtschwert weg und nimmt den Tod in den Kauf. [...] "Wir müssen den Staat immer wieder danach fragen, ob er sein Handeln verantworten kann."

Jon Snow: ‘I would defend the BBC to the death’ | Media | The Guardian
but that some media owners had a negative effect on the industry. “I think there has been a negative pull on the British media and I blame some of the proprietors for that. I still think the BBC is pretty good and I would defend it to the death, even though I have never worked for it.” [...] Asked about press coverage of Jeremy Corbyn, he said some of those writing about the Labour leader were “experiencing some kind of fear”, adding: “I think they may need to see a psychiatrist.” He said the biggest issues facing the UK were housing and inequality between the very rich and very poor, adding: “I don’t think there will be a revolution, but it has all the characteristics of what has led to revolution in the past.” [...] [ on Journalism / Covering human tragedy ] He said that while he tries to remain objective, “sometimes when powerful emotions are in play, this can be very, very hard”.

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!

Google Plans to Introduce Android Laptops, Replacing Chrome as OS | Re/code
Scale Google loves scale. It shutters products with user numbers that many companies would kill for (remember Reader?) because they don’t reach the billion-plus of its flagships. Chrome primarily lives on Chromebook devices. Gartner estimates Google will ship 7.9 million devices this year. Android, Google recently announced, crossed 1.4 billion users. Very different scale. Despite some traction, Chromebooks are still a tiny slice of the market, and Google has faced difficulty corralling developers to build apps for it. It hasn’t had the same problem with Android. [...] Google has manically reiterated that it does, in fact, have a cohesive plan for mobile. A chief Android distinction from Chrome is that it is built for mobile behavior. A vote for Android is, in some ways, a tacit admission that Google must devote its attention to the devices on which it lives.

The Math Behind SaaS Startup Valuation | TechCrunch
One of the most critical metrics for software companies — but also one of the most difficult to measure — is the lifetime value of their customers (LTV). The lifetime value dictates how a company should spend its marketing and sales dollars. Unfortunately, many early stage startups struggle to measure LTV, because they haven’t been around very long and, consequently, haven’t seen a large number of customers through their lifespans with the product. // &! http://techcrunch.com/2015/08/29/the-saas-success-database/

Authors Robbie Kellman Baxter and John Warrillow explain the rise of the subscription model. // advertising only cuts it at scale, and then you actually sell your users data/privacy to target them and you go down the rabbit hole to improve the ad product to get better rates thus the user is the product you sell to the advertiser - in the first place, not the product itself that is free to use, for the consumer.

Gurley on Global Selloff: Bloomberg West (Full Show 8/21) - YouTube
'averting catastrophic events' - hard things about hard things - book // when taking on growth round to grow aggressively company (buying customer growth)... you might actually take on risk. especially when the sentiment and the market turns and you burned it all and weren't so good at allocating the money and 'growing' you have to maybe raise a flat/downround ... ooopsies. Or even have to accept a debt round and massive lay-off to get to cash flow even/positive. And run a tight ship with the user base/business you've got. // re: post-price correction after speculative China bubble burst and massive China weakness and still existing/persistent deflationary pressures in western world. // &! bit.ly/1NTc3GM - Public markets affect venture funding.

Howard Stern Just Sent Ad Blocking Mainstream. — Verses From The Abstract — Medium
mass market = commodity business = zero marginal cost/economic of abundance = low quality = value only short-term &! https://soundcloud.com/ianschafer/howard-stern-on-ad-blocking - UPDATE: This is the App Store trending searches on the morning of Wednesday, August 26th. There is definitely a Stern effect: [...] Heck, if Howard Stern can convince people to buy Squatty Pottys, he can convince them to install ad blocking extensions. Are ads even the future of advertising? Let’s figure out what the future actually is while we still have some runway. In the meantime, let’s make advertising that actually provides value to people while we still can. // // native, brand awareness, not annoying, value creation - added value, shared economic interest ads !!!

Staff Exodus, Pressure From Microsoft, Apple Hit Google Now | Re/code
According to multiple sources, their initial vision of Now — as a mobile assistant tailored to particular users — works best living on the mobile operating system, not within search. Also, Google is a political place and search is Congress. Big, necessary, stodgy. [...] “‘Look, I’ve got a lot on my plate. Chrome and Android are my top priorities. Google Now is not on that. I can’t fight that battle for you.’” [...] Apple, for its part, looks prepared to launch a competitor to Now on Tap. With its proactive assistant and spotlight search, the Apple entry could elbow Google out. // // Amazon released a (SW/HW)PA for the living room, Apple got Siri & just recently launched its own integrated search engine called "Spotlight" & Google released Google Now (voice activated search in response to Siri) and at last Google I/O, Now on Tap [ Now on Tap will solve app developers’ nagging issue with discovery. ] And FB just came out w an assistant product for Messenger. // &! bit.ly/1JYeNCT

How China's economic slowdown could weigh on the rest of the world | World news | The Guardian
[debt fuelled recovery ] // In the year to July, China's customs agency reports that imports from Australia are down by $15bn dollars on the same period last year - a loss which is already equal to 1% of Australia's GDP, and many other countries stand to lose out to similar degrees. China's imports overall are down by 14.6% over 2015. Find out what happens if this decline continues for the rest of the year - or worsens - and how that loss compares to each country's GDP

BBC TV chief warns of US threat after big-money Amazon deals | Media | The Guardian
>> iPlayer needs to become an international subscription business. and leverage the BBC brand (sought after and trusted, it's the last public crown jewl that actually can compete in a global market! Channel 4 or ITV can't. ) // “Their model is built on having global rights and we have got to respect that. They are a very smart, impressive bunch of people,” Cohen said. “The key thing we look at more and more is the impact of global competition rather than just in the UK where very big companies can distribute their content around the world. That is a very big challenge.”

Complaints about banks’ packaged accounts soar to 1,000 a week | Money | The Guardian
Barclays disclosed on 29 July that it was putting aside £250m, and the following day Royal Bank of Scotland said it was lifting its provision to £307m. Lloyds and Bank of Scotland have the Silver and Platinum packaged accounts, which cost £9.95 and £17 a month respectively, while NatWest and RBS have Select Silver and Select Platinum, costing £10 and £16 a month. But packaged accounts have long been criticised by many commentators – consumer organisation Which? labelled them a “useless financial product” – while customers have complained they were “unfairly pressured” into signing up to an account they did not need. Others have said to the ombudsman they were told they could not have the mortgage or loan they wanted unless they also took out a packaged account. [...] The ombudsman service has now revealed it is receiving around 1,000 new complaints a week.
