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.

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 !!!

Interview with Rashida Jones on Her Porn Documentary 'Hot Girls Wanted' - YouTube
[ talks about little melt pot / map-over of 'pornification' of pop culture (ie music, urban, black, stripping, dancing, buts, twerks ("do you have to be able to twerk to be cool?") pics on instagram, "have to be sexy to be notices" ... "we have to differentiate between sexuality and sexualisation (ie of pop culture) "porn = peak of capitalism, commoditization of sex" [...] "WHY DOES SEXY HAS TO BE WOMEN'S ONLY CURRENCY" << and worth judged by other women and patriarchy ... "ITS LIMITING" ] "Parks and Recreation" star Rashida Jones has established a lovable reputation for herself through roles in hit comedies like "The Office" and "I Love You Man". Over the past few years, she's also ventured into writing and producing films, currently tackling projects like writing Toy Story 4. We had a chance to hang out with Rashida and talk about her shift behind the camera, and the documentary she recently produced on Miami's amateur porn industry, "Hot Girls Wanted.

The Kesha Rape Allegations Reveal One Big Problem We Aren't Talking About - Mic
The statement does not say why Kesha allegedly wants out of her contract.  But one thing is clear: Kesha doesn't want to work with Dr. Luke any more. But she can't stop their partnership, because pop music is a business founded on the commodification of people. Whether or not Dr. Luke is guilty, this sort of exploitative dynamic is all too common.

"The main thing that has caused companies to fail, in my view, is that they missed the future," - Larry Page At TED - Business Insider
"The main thing that has caused companies to fail, in my view, is that they missed the future," Page said. This is why Google is going full steam ahead working on a variety of projects.  "When we bought Android, it was small and I felt guilty working on it, but it was smart, it was the future," he said.

BBC News - Is Hollywood's blockbuster model broken?
The irony is that Spielberg almost singlehandedly invented the blockbuster genre. When his film Jaws was released in 1975, Hollywood realised that making a few big-budget films a year that appealed to the masses was more lucrative than making dozens of smaller ones, and a business model was born. Since then budgets have soared and artistic merit has taken a back seat. [...] After a wave of acquisitions in the 80s and 90s, the six "majors" that dominate global box office are now parts of massive media conglomerates. They have found ways to both boost profitability of their films and mitigate the risks associated with making such huge investments. [...] The first thing the studios have done is spread the risk by getting dozens of smaller production companies to invest alongside them, reducing their exposure to a potential flop.
