It's a good time to stay focused on the goal." [...] There has been speculation in recent months about some MCNs looking beyond YouTube for distribution of their videos, in an effort to boost views (and thus ad revenues) while reducing their reliance on a single platform. [ << Don't build your castle on someone elses tropical island. ] "I think every multi-channel network would be wise to continually focus on how they serve creators not only on YouTube, but through different means of distribution and channels," he says.

Jeff Bezos Bought The Washington Post For One Thing: Distribution ⚙ Co.Labs ⚙ code + community
[surrounding yourself with smarter people] In some sense you wouldn’t even be human anymore. People like Jeff are better regarded as hyper-intelligent aliens with a tangential interest in human affairs . . . Trust me folks, I saw this happen time and again, for years. Jeff Bezos has all these incredibly intelligent, experienced domain experts surrounding him at huge meetings, and on a daily basis he thinks of shit that they never saw coming. It’s a guaranteed facepalm fest. [...] Purpose-built distribution networks for different kinds of content are beginning to solidify into infrastructure, just as e-commerce did 10 years ago. And if we’ve learned anything about Bezos, it’s that he loves to own his own infrastructure and leverage it into new kinds of business we can’t even imagine right now.

Financial Times editor says most news websites will charge within a year | Media | guardian.co.uk
The Financial Times editor, Lionel Barber, has predicted that "almost all" news organisations will be charging for online content within a year.

Barber said building online platforms that could charge readers on an article-by-article or subscription basis was one of the key challenges facing news organisations.

"How these online payment models work and how much revenue they can generate is still up in the air," Barber said in a speech at at a Media Standards Trust event at the British Academy last night.

"But I confidently predict that within the next 12 months, almost all news organisations will be charging for content."
