GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

The Vergecast 168: Really good codeine - YouTube
min 46 // Instagram increased res for square format, now allowing all photo formats (vertical and landscape, after user hacked the square format - putting in landscape or portrait photos with borders - to make it square) vs what it was and was not and what it only offered on release day. "the great equaliser." all had the same tool, limitations, options, ways to express, make photos more interesting. thus it showed off some specific creative you (how to use your phone camera), not your skill and experience with Photoshop, lighting, photo school rules - that can set you apart. Instagram was a small, limited, enhanced window you your world, to that moment - captured. And now like Social Media. It is being gamed. Exploited. Abused. For specific commercial and or personal purpose. // Instagram was sort of, lucked out, with not being something for everyone. No it has become that thing that can be used by everyone - for their purpose. Follows it being primed for advertisers ...

Facebook Confirms Live Broadcasting Will Soon Open To Journalists And Verified Profiles | TechCrunch
Live streaming/Broadcasting from your phone, being a feature. Not a product. Nor a company. Good luck Meerkat finding a soft landing, exit, getting to cashflow postive quickly. If you are lucky an Android device maker like Samsung buy you for cheap and put your app pre-loaded on their devices. Twitch came out of Justin.tv and found itself a crowd with gamers, bought by Amazon. I wouldn't be surprised if Twitch releases an iPhone/Android app soonish.

Pando: “Video is an unfair advantage you either join or lose” [SPONSORED]
your Newsfeed in Facebook became 50% video over night, and those videos started to autoplay, grabbing all of your attention. I think the change was dramatic, and it changed social media from being this static journal to something where everything is moving all the time. [...] Video is not even remotely close to photos when it comes to complication, but it’s also 1000 times more powerful. [...] Just to give you an example, consider, autoplay video. It has different requirements. It needs to capture your attention very fast. When we design for autoplay video, how do we create the first few seconds to capture your attention? [ GaryV does edit his videos between YT and FB differently! ] [...] We expect the market will penalize someone who is not prioritizing video. [...] Photos and text are just becoming more and more invisible. // Snacking, Entertainment, Escapeism, - or - Utility (here is a 20% coupon)

Periscope founder: “Portrait is the future"
Later, Forte pleaded with the entrepreneur. “Please, landscape view for pros.” “We’re working on it,” Beykpour assured, but added that his “philosophical conviction” was that “portrait is the future.” Neither Forte nor Temple seemed convinced that Periscope was useful, journalistically speaking. And Forte pointed out that it could be detrimental. “There is a hesitation not to do what newspapers did on the web in the late ‘90s, which was put it all up for free. There’s a sense of ‘what’s in it for us?’ and caution before we put stuff up there,” Forte said. [...] How will Periscope fend off the Chatroulette moment? (to wit, when its better-intended uses are subsumed by the global community of mostly-male sexual exhibitionists. Beykpour knew precisely what I meant without further explanation.)

Reddit's fate hangs in the balance as revolt against CEO makes waves | Technology | The Guardian
While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! bit.ly/1NMqxYG - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

Meerkat CEO: Competitive Products Are a Sign of Success - YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD3FYSmTADQ - Why Twitter Users Prefer Live-Streams in Their Feeds // serendipitous of YouNow, Persicope, and Meerkat (plus their previous version) are a sign when one technology capability matures for wider user adoption and not just for early adopters. #timing #luck --- Jobs talked about the user experience and utility and working backwards to the technology from that point of view, of the user. "It just works." // first there was 3G and ustream and qik and others. then there came 4G/LTE and we now have huge reach with social networks(effect) and instantness of twitter and co. ... and we will soon have 5G which will make the experience even more immersive because of more bandwidth, think of streaming 720p from your phone to the world with a great sound.

Drowning In The Livestreams | TechCrunch
everyone is shouting .... The problem is the incentives are aligned all wrong. Livestreaming apps want content and engagement, so they’re built to make starting a stream as quick and frictionless as possible. Livestreaming apps are not designed to make you take a deep breath and consider whether anyone gives a shit about what you’re going to broadcast. // vs. measurement of quality metrics like Medium measures reading time. // vs ephemeral nature of Snapchat - guaranteed attention. - // and FOMO,
