The Growth Trap
[ growing for growth sake! vs growing in a world/area that is not conducive to grow ] When Twitter went public in 2013, its stock soared and its value jumped to $25 billion. Its founders and early investors got rich. But since then, the company has been considered a failure, despite the fact that it boasts 320 million active users, because it's not growing fast enough. Douglas Rushkoff, author of "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity," talks to Steve Paikin about why he sees the push for more growth as dangerous. // true capitalists (shareholder, crony, greedy) w/o self-regulation or governance extract all the value there is to extract and then leave, dispersing it to the few who already have [...] WE MUST REWRITE THE RULES OF THE GROWTH GAME ITSELF! [...] you want to optimise the economy based on velocity of money (circulation of money), not share price and value extraction [...]

Marissa Mayer vs. “Kim Kardashian’s Ass”: What Sunk Yahoo’s Media Ambitions?
After a pricey talent spree, Yahoo News is reversing course—again. [...] Yahoo’s journalists used to joke amongst themselves about the extensive variety of Kind bars provided, but now the snacks aren’t being replenished. Instead, employees frequently remind each other that there is little reason to bother creating quality work within Yahoo’s vast eco-system of middle-brow content. “You are competing against Kim Kardashian’s ass,” goes a common refrain.

Security Experts Warn of Orwellian Future in Apple Case | Re/code
[ all without a warrant ] Your Samsung smart TV or Amazon Echo might spy on you next if the government succeeds in forcing Apple to disable security protections on a smartphone to further the FBI’s investigation into the San Bernardino attacks. Security experts from Stanford, Harvard and Rice universities and independent researchers laid out this Orwellian scenario in a court filing today, supporting Apple’s fight against a court order to help investigators hack a smartphone used by one of the assailants in the mass killing. The group of seven experts argues that the judge’s order [...] disturbing possibilities for how law enforcement might turn everyday items into surveillance tools. //&!

Yahoo: Was der Niedergang Apple, Google und Facebook lehrt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Yahoo baut Stellen ab und endet wohl als Ramschware. Der Abstieg des Internet-Pioniers ist auch eine Warnung an Apple, Facebook und Co. [...] Die Krise von Yahoo lässt sich in einer Zahl zusammenfassen: minus 13 Milliarden Dollar. So niedrig bewertet die Börse das Kerngeschäft des amerikanischen Internet-Konzerns inzwischen, hat der Tech-Journalist Matt Levine ausgerechnet. Abzüglich einiger lukrativer Beteiligungen und seiner Bargeldreserven ist Yahoo nichts mehr wert. Weniger als nichts. [...] Die digitalen Mode- und Tech-Magazine, die sie startete, finden wenige Leser. Auch die 2013 gekaufte Blog-Plattform Tumblr entwickelte sich nicht, wie von Mayer erhofft: Von der 1,1-Milliarden-Dollar-Akquisition schreibt Yahoo nun rund ein Viertel ab.

Yahoo to cut its workforce by 15% - BBC News
Yahoo is cutting 15% of its workforce as the company pursues an "aggressive strategic plan" to return to profitability. The job cuts will reduce the number of its employees to about 9,000 by the end of 2016. The announcement came as Yahoo reported a $4.3bn (£3bn) loss for the year. In a statement, chief executive Marissa Mayer said: "This is a strong plan calling for bold shifts in products and in resources." [...] The focus on cutting costs and raising profits is being seen as the latest sign that the company is becoming more serious about selling its core business. "They can slim down to improve profitability, but they are in an industry that is growing and they're not," said Martin Pyykkonen, managing director at Rosenblatt Securities. If Yahoo does sell its main internet business the process is unlike to be a quick one. "If the core business was really a valuable asset someone would have come and tried to buy it already," said Mr Pyykkonen.

Despite Wall Street Noise and Sale Rumors, Yahoo Board Backs Mayer | Re/code
If you want to know what's really going on at Yahoo this month, there's one person to ask: Kara Swisher has a comprehensive report about the (continual) swirl around Marissa Mayer and her company. Short version: Yahoo's board backs their CEO, and doesn't want to sell off its core Web business. But it still has to consider its options, which it will do, in a pre-planned board meetings this week.

Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer Says Executive Departures Were ‘Careful Planning’ (I Beg to Differ!) | Re/code
nervousness about what happens after the spinoff of Yahoo’s stake in China’s Alibaba Group. Mayer said today it could be delayed until January, but once done, it means Yahoo’s shaky core business has to stand on its own. Shaky indeed. Yahoo reported weak earnings for its third quarter yesterday, not meeting Wall Street expectations of earnings and revenue. How to turn that around is still a work in progress, said Mayer and CFO Ken Goldman on the earning conference call with analysts. But employees are bracing for the bumpy future. One source noted that “some execs are just slotting people in anywhere so they can hang on until whatever is planned for post-spin … people in the know know that whatever is coming post-spin isn’t great.” [ cutting 10-20% of its workforce? size apropriate? ]

Major Executive Shake-Up at Yahoo Media Unit Amid Company-Wide Talent Turmoil (Update) | Re/code
There have been a lot of changes in the media unit too, including some layoffs and other adjustments. Under Savitt and with the support of Mayer, Yahoo has sought to create a content destination site, with elaborate online magazines and big-name hires like Katie Couric and David Pogue. Still, the lack of traction in reviving its core business, especially advertising, has begun to take its toll. And, no surprise, there are many more as other Silicon Valley companies — such as Twitter, Facebook and others — have grabbed the cream of the crop at Yahoo of late, as its core business has continued to suffer. I have spent the last several weeks compiling a long list of the leavings, so more to come.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's minimal maternity leave plan prompts dismay | Technology | The Guardian
When she had her son in September 2012, she took two weeks of paid maternity leave, a fraction of what the company allowed. Eight months later and three months after banning telecommuting, Mayer announced more generous maternity benefits at Yahoo. The company doubled maternity leave and now offers new mothers 16 weeks of paid time off. Fathers are offered eight weeks of paid paternity leave. Both parents can take eight weeks in the case of adoption, fostering or surrogacy. [...] There is speculation as to whether another famous technology chief – Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook – will take his company allowance of paternity leave. [...] “Mayer’s announcement is disappointing,” said Anne Weisberg, senior vice-president of the Families and Work Institute in New York. “She’s a role model and I think she should take whatever Yahoo’s parental leave is – the mark of a great leader is that they have a strong team and don’t need to be there all the time themselves. &! vs bit.ly/1VGGunZ

Heads-up, Google: Fighting EU Is Useless - Bloomberg View
That approach was part of a charm offensive. Last year, Google doubled its EU lobbying budget to 3.5 million euros ($3.9 million), according to anti-corruption group Transparency International's Integritywatch.eu site, which aggregates information from official EU disclosures. That isn't much less than Deutsche Bank or ExxonMobil is spending. According to data on the same site, Google has held more meetings with EU officials than any other company since last November -- 32 in all, although only one of these officially had to do with the antitrust case, which has developed since 2010. "We want to do a better job of listening to Europe's concerns and explaining how our business works with Europe," the company said of these efforts.

People are underestimating Snapchat just like they underestimated Facebook - Vox
In fact, almost every one of today's big internet companies — Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and Twitter — faced similar skepticism in their early years. Back in 2007, Kara Swisher (who now runs Re/code which, like Vox.com, is part of Vox Media) expressed astonishment that Facebook could be worth $15 billion. A year before that, a Slate headline read "$1 Billion for Facebook? LOL!" (Facebook is now worth $260 billion.) [....] A company's early ad revenue just doesn't tell us anything interesting about its long-term earnings potential. It takes a while for a company to hire a sales team, settle on an effective advertising format, and build awareness among potential customers. [...] But while it might take time for Snapchat to build a successful advertising program, there's little doubt that it will be able to. Every day, 100 million people open up the Snapchat app. As long as that's true, advertisers are going to be willing to pay top dollar to reach them.

And acquisitions that help it make Yahoo! a mobile app company, relevant in the ecosystem (see Flurry acquisition, Brightroll, ... ad network/platform). Yahoos one disadvantage is that it doesn't have as much context to serve relevant - re-targeted ads to customers compared to FB, Twitter, Google. Same with Yahoo.com, its a bland/blunt page. No contextual, personal content nor advertising apart from cookies data derived. [...] "User data belongs to the end user." [...] "Portable" [...] "Standardized."

[...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective.

It's official: Google blew it with YouTube, and Facebook has caught up | Nicholas Carlson | LinkedIn
"In April, Facebook hit 4 billion views per day, matching the latest estimates available for 10-year-old YouTube." [...] This is a core mission for Facebook. Facebook has become "synonymous with mobile," Facebook ad exec Carolyn Everson says. "I think that the next frontier is becoming synonymous with mobile video." People used to share video from other sites on Facebook. In February, however, "70% of Facebook's videos were uploaded directly," Griffith reports. Griffith: "Complex Media reports average completion rates of 78% for its Facebook videos, which last two to 10 minutes." Facebook has tweaked its News Feed algorithm to favor video, according to one Facebook page owner. If you have a page with a million followers, your photos will reach 14% of your followers, your text-only posts will reach 4%, and your videos will reach 35%.

PANDO - Sarah Lacy: "speaking to the truth of the power of tech [and Wall Street C-Suit spin & PR speak]" // A combined Verizon/AOL is nowhere close in terms of scale that actually matters in the ad business. [...] Verizon has just bought a technology platform [programmatic content and advertising]. That’s why HuffPo, much of the sales team, and nearly anything else can probably go. [...] AOL is hardly leading in anything ad related—it was growing revenues at less than 10% a year and ad sales are only one-third of AOL’s revenues. Verizon likewise hardly leads in “mobile video”—the stated reason they say they’re doing this deal is to augment their mobile streaming video service which launches next month. AOL mostly just gives them a platform to sell ads across it. Woo hoo! That’s why it was done at just 8.3 times next year’s expected earnings in an era of high priced deals. // &! bit.ly/1JujF2q

I promise. Multi-year! As I wrote earlier today, Yahoo is facing a number of challenges in making its core business healthy and growing. Among them, a management rejiggering by Mayer, a possibly costly effort to get back into the search business and increasingly negative morale at the company due to “drip layoffs.” [...] Most of all, it’s the lack of revenue and earnings growth that is the problem, which Mayer will address later today in a call with analysts. I’ll be liveblogging, of course. // http://recode.net/2015/04/21/the-bumpy-road-ahead-liveblogging-yahoo-q1-earnings/

NYT - EU and Google
“With more than a decade of hindsight, the theories supporting the case against Microsoft have all but fallen apart, and the pursuit of the company that makes Windows may suggest a reason for skepticism about this fight against Google: The tech marketplace is fluid and unpredictable. The giants that look most unbeatable today could falter in ways that may once have seemed unthinkable — and without a lot of help from the government.” [...] Google makes most of its money from search ads, but the market for such direct advertising may be tapped out. The next great wave of digital advertising — a market far bigger than search spots — will come from ad budgets now reserved for TV commercials, and many observers bet that Facebook, not Google, is in the best position to get that business. &! bit.ly/1aCgTK7 &!

Just say no. Please, Marissa. Just. Say. No. | PandoDaily
We’ve heard it at PandoMonthly after PandoMonthly: If anyone can do it, Marissa can. Everyone has wanted to believe. This rare and sweeping benefit of the doubt – greater even than what Tim Armstrong got when he took the reins of AOL – was why Marc Andreessen’s immediate reaction was to call it a no brainer career move for Mayer. Either she fixes it, in which case, she’s one of the great CEOs in Internet and Valley history. Or she doesn’t, and the meme is that Yahoo is so broken even Marissa couldn’t fix it. [...] Every great CEO will tell you the hardest part of their job isn’t say yes. It’s saying no. And Mayer has seemed incapable of it. That was especially bad given that Yahoo was a number two player in a cascade of silos. It was exactly the company that needed a long series of No’s. I defy anyone to look at the last 18 months and articulate a strategy of discipline and focus.

Yahoo’s layoff train continues, arriving in Santa Monica today | PandoDaily
Since the earliest days of Mayor’s tenure at the head of Yahoo, tech industry insiders and Wall Street alike have pushed for her to do a massive bloodletting of Yahoo’s arguably bloated organization. Netscape founder and Facebook board member Marc Andreessen* suggested that as many as 10,000 people needed to be let go. After more than two years in the role, this reorganization by 1,000 paper cuts isn’t quite the decisive action that many initially hoped for. But anything that represents focus and an emphasis on lean operations should be met with applause at this point. But now that Yahoo no longer has the benefit of its Alibaba holdings to bouy its stock price, Mayer is under pressure to cut costs and deliver meaningful growth. Counterintuitive as it may seem, a leaner organization, and the focus it brings, might actually help on both fronts.

A Year Later, $19 Billion For WhatsApp Doesn’t Sound So Crazy | TechCrunch
Messaging is the center of mobile. Snapchat is raising at around a $20 billion valuation. And no one cares who owns apps. On February 19th, 2014, we didn’t know any of these things for sure. So when Facebook announced it would pay $19 billion to acquire WhatsApp — an app most American pundits had never used — it seemed ludicrous. Zuck had to be crazy, right? Wrong. Without WhatsApp, Facebook’s international situation would look a lot dicier. And if a competitor like Google acquired it instead, it could have been disastrous. Instead, Facebook possess the most popular messaging app, and has neutralized the biggest threat to its global domination of social networking. Why? Chat Is The Mobile Portal! [...] Its Stories feature has grown into a competitor to Facebook’s News Feed. And Discover could make it all quite monetizable if it gets popular. Snapchat is constantly cited as where teens are ditching your parents’ social network for.

Anybody who can't make money off iPads or TUAW should get out of the money-making business | iMore
But just because AOL can't make money off a niche blog, that doesn't mean the niche blog is dead: It just needs to evolve. We might be looking at a future where niche blogs stay far away from multi-million dollar corporations, and find different forms of money-making apart from blanket advertising. Ben Thompson wrote a fantastic piece this morning on blogging's bright future that follows those lines: No, it's not scale that is the problem, but rather reach. I am, of course, acutely aware that there is a tradeoff when it comes to the subscription business model: by making something scarce, and worth paying for, you are by definition limiting your number of readers. Stratechery, though, serves a niche, and niches are best served by making more from customers who really care than from milking pennies from everyone.

Yahoo to Spin Off Its Stake in Alibaba - NYTimes.com
Marissa Mayer said on Tuesday that the Internet company would spin off its 15.4 percent stake in Alibaba, China’s leading e-commerce company, into a separate company. The decision, which Wall Street has been waiting for since Ms. Mayer joined the company in 2012, cheered shareholders because they will directly reap all the remaining profit from Yahoo’s prescient investment, which cost almost nothing a decade ago but is now worth about $39.5 billion. In the process, Yahoo will avoid any taxes on the transaction but will be stripped of its single most valuable asset. The Alibaba stake alone now makes up nearly 85 percent of Yahoo’s market value. - via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8956129

Why Yahoo’s abandonment of core Tumblr users is actually almost commendable | PandoDaily
Nevertheless, a platform for existing video superstars is not exactly in the spirit of Tumblr’s gonzo community of lost toys. But couldn’t Yahoo conceivably chase its YouTubian ambitions without ruining Tumblr for its original users? Apparently not. Over 50,000 Tumblr users have signed a Change.org petition asking the company to reverse course on a change it made to image size requirements. Tumblr likely made the size changes, which involve wider images, because they would make video content (and video ad content) more attractive. But as a result, many older images are now stretched or otherwise distorted. Commenters say the impact has been especially great on animated GIFs, one of the most popular formats on Tumblr.

Tumblr Rolls Out Auto-Playing Video Ads To Users’ Dashboards | TechCrunch
[average revenue per user] - Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said last week during Yahoo’s earnings call that Tumblr is expected to generate over $100 million in revenue for the company, mainly due to the introduction of sponsored advertising. She also noted that Tumblr will achieve positive earnings before interest, tax and depreciation next year, and the platform has seen its audience grow 40 percent to 420 million users. The news surprised investors, who had previously been writing off the $1.1 billion Tumblr acquisition as something of a dud, especially as Yahoo had been silent about Tumblr’s financial situation. (So much for all that brouhaha about Tumblr users abandoning the service following the Yahoo deal.) Mayer also revealed at the time that the number of blogs on Tumblr had nearly doubled to 206 million, and people were staying on the service longer – with Dashboard browsing sessions growing from 22 minutes to 28 minutes.

Forget AOL — Activist Attack on Yahoo Is All About Forking Over Alibaba Cash | Re/code
many think such a merger [w AOL] could save costs by bringing together two companies that are in the same two key businesses, advertising and content. Others consider it a potential disaster, knitting together two companies saddled with backward-looking assets and a questionable recipe for future growth. That is, outside of acquisitions, which Mayer has employed heavily in the past two years of her leadership, frantically buying up a range of small mobile-focused startups to try to inject more innovation, talent and product savvy into the long-moribund Yahoo. While the effort is laudable in principle, investors seem unimpressed with her purchases, and, at this point at least, they have yielded no concrete bottom-line improvements to Yahoo’s much-flagging core business.

Dropbox was asked not to inform users of 80% of its government data requests | PandoDaily
Many of the leaks published by the Guardian, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and ProPublica over the last few months show that companies might not even be aware of everything the government is doing to access their data. The US National Security Agency can reportedly infiltrate Google’s data through a program called MUSCULAR. Upon hearing of this program, Google engineers “exploded in profanity” and others issued a “giant Fuck You” to the NSA on their Google+ profiles. How could these companies disclose such programs in their transparency reports — even if the current restrictions are lifted — if they are unaware of them in the first place? [...] Dropbox’s transparency report is a stark reminder of just how little we still know about what information law enforcement seeks from tech companies more than a year after many of the government’s surveillance programs were first revealed.

Yahoo’s Core Business Value Cut in Half to $6.8 Billion After Alibaba IPO - Digits - WSJ
With Yahoo’s market capitalization at $41.86 billion, the value that investors are placing on the core business – the entire empire of media sites, advertising, email, mobile apps and other Web properties like Tumblr and Flickr – sits at about $6.8 billion. That number was $13.85 billion at the IPO pricing, but it fell as Alibaba’s stock rose and Yahoo’s shares sank. A long list of factors could influence the value of Yahoo’s core business in the coming months. Chief Executive Marissa Mayer may look to use her new war chest on acquisitions that could accelerate growth and change investors’ muted outlook on the stock.  Finance chief Ken Goldman is on the hunt for ways to avoid paying the full tax rate on the remaining Alibaba shares. If the run up on Alibaba’s stock continues, and Yahoo’s stock sags, the value of its core business could dwindle to nothing at all.

Most content startups have two things in common with my three year old: - They have an incredibly hard time apologizing when they’ve done something bad.

To a three year old– or most startups– patience is like purgatory. Waiting five seconds for Animal Mechanicals to load on Netflix is the worst punishment Eli can imagine.

A Look Back At Yahoo’s Flickr Acquisition For Lessons Today | TechCrunch
[The Future is uncertain & Vague"] .... Flickr decided in January 2005 to take the Yahoo offer — reportedly for $35 million. There were too many compelling reasons to take the offer during what was still an uncertain time. Because it was early in the growth of tech startups after the dot-com crash, Flickr missed some of the up-tick in the market, as others sold for more when the market took off: Myspace sold to News Corp. for $580 million in July 2005 and later YouTube, which Google acquired in October 2006 for $1.65 billion in stock. “We definitely made the wrong decision in retrospect. We would’ve made 10 times [what we did]. But it’s not like I regret it,” Butterfield says. How can something be a mistake and also be completely correct? The sale left potentially 10 times more on the table. But Butterfield doesn’t regret it because he believes they made the right decision knowing what they did at the time. And he and other team members have all gone on to do well at other ventures.

A Former Yahoo Defends Marissa Mayer - Business Insider
What I didn’t get then, but understand now, is Marissa most likely made a conscious decision to put the legacy display business on the backburner to focus on building a new, more modern monetization platform capable of driving predictable and systematic long-term growth for Yahoo. [...] Native ads now make up 40% of all impressions sold on Yahoo, up 100% quarter over quarter. That’s huge. It means Marissa’s native ad play has a pulse. This is her big bet in display and, based on the current trajectory, native ads should become the majority of impressions sold on Yahoo! by the end of Q3.

And when you’re a broad-based, horizontal platform, your competitors are going to specialize in certain verticals, and that’s all they’re going to do. And they’re going to get that vertical right. I don’t know of any company that can compete across every space it’s in if it’s a broad-based horizontal platform, when you have single minded competitors that specialize.

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. Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++ http://bit.ly/1r64hlX
