On Google's new Search Algo Push/Update - Called Panda.
Lesson Learned. Don't build your business on other peoples platform. Even if it is search. Meaning if your business is primarily impressions/unique visitors coming in via search, or even Social Media (FB - newsfeed algo, Twitter - noise + search algo, Pinterest - search algo, Amazon - product search) ... then you have one more thing to worry about every day - because you can't fix it if they break it for you. +++ http://recode.net/2014/05/23/yes-google-punished-ebay-for-bad-seo-practices-but-it-wasnt-part-of-panda-update/

Warner Bros. Gets Ready to Bet on YouTube With a Machinima Investment | Re/code
Machinima’s long road for this round is partly a reflection of its own problems — several of the company’s top executives have left in the last year, it has had multiple layoff rounds, and is looking for a replacement for CEO and founder Allen DeBevoise — and may also be related to issues many video producers are having as they try to make money on YouTube. Even companies that garner lots of eyeballs on the world’s biggest video site — and Machinima says it generates billions of views a month — have had a hard time turning that into a profitable business, because ad rates are low and much of the money they do make goes back to YouTube.

Confident As F*** But Scared as S*** - YouTube
... personal investment. one should know that a business outcome isn't reflective on a persons value. Leads me to the end conclusion of http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson "Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies" - where he shows that inequality leads to social stress. Paul Robinette associates his business outcome and other peoples reviews of his brainchild with his personal likeability and his social value to the overall community / friends and family and associates. + see http://www.youtube.com/user/ThisWeekIn/search?query=Jerry+Colonna

CuteWinFail Fires Toby Turner - Tubefilter
The online video industry has grown to a point where enough money is at stake to warrant seemingly sever repercussions when a contract is allegedly breached. It’s a signal of the maturation of the space, and a note that the players involved are becoming increasingly more serious about, and protective of their businesses. - See more at: http://www.tubefilter.com/2012/11/30/cutewinfail-fires-toby-turner/#sthash.0W6U2lVz.dpuf + http://www.tubefilter.com/2012/11/27/ray-william-johnson-runaway-planet-studio-julian-smith/ - RWJ, “but as far as I do know, there’s no good reason to ever sign your Youtube Adsense account over to a 3rd party. Ever. Period. Anything a Youtube-based network wants to do for you, they can accomplish without seizing control of your Adsense account. If you want production or managerial assistance, then partner with a production entity or manager and pay them a percentage of your expected revenue, but don’t sign your Adsense over.

The Great Venture Capital Rotation | LinkedIn
You can only succeed as an angel investor, I believe, if you are a massive gambler. You have to bet, bet, bet with ice in your veins: knowing that after dozens of failures, you’ll hit a winning bet of epic proportions.
