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.

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.

Franchise redux: The professionalization of the sharing economy has deep implications | PandoDaily
But for all Airbnb and Uber’s much deserved “disruptive” acclaim, these businesses have older roots than the hype cycle suggests. According to conventional wisdom, Airbnb and Uber enable “regular individuals” to make a few extra bucks renting out an extra bedroom or giving fellow travelers a ride. They unlock a new class of assets, where fellow consumers share in collaborative consumption. In fact, while these businesses nailed rapidly changing consumer preferences  –  buying services at time of usage, rather than owning assets fits the post-recession, Millennial sensibility of the moment –  the supply side of their businesses does not match the narrative. Supply in these marketplaces is increasingly delivered by entrepreneurial, small business owners, not fellow consumers. Uber and Airbnb are best understood as reimagined franchise operations that leverage mobile data, the social graph, and continuous feedback loops to deliver a better consumer experience.

Just as teen boredom couldn’t predict Facebook’s demise, teen excitement can’t predict Snapchat’s success | PandoDaily
would be interesting if Snapchat can shake off its image and capture the adult audience ... growing its userbase. + http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/2/5676196/snapchat-acquires-addlive-video-chat ... >> acqui-hire trend :: insert Dropbox, Google, FB, etc etc all that have a warchest of funding to gobble up small product and technology teams with little or with no traction. BC being based in SF is expensive ( http://bit.ly/1netbu6 ) ... but up to what cost? Questionmark. Technology, product, design talent doesn't live only in SF, CA. and surroundings. You forego potential. Would be interesting to see - as SF area and surroundings get more and more expensive and the Start-Up land gets more and more distributed across the globe, whether or not the next big hitters (not just single hitters) can come out of non-Silicon Valley location (ie berlin, london). Q: Is the infrastructure good enough to facilitate that? ( http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/26/lets-talk-about-exits-berlin/ )

Joe Gebbia - The Airbnb Story - YouTube
AirBnB is the ebay for places and experiences. Sharing is caring - you space. This kindness to open up you personal space to strangers ... magical moments can happen. Stories are written. Lives are changed. Still there is the 80/20 - there will always be bad eggs, say bad customers. And because national travel is vry affordable and people want to escape their walls on the weekend if they could afford and its users use it for niche items/services >> providing accommodation for events. Staying in someones place is very different than a hotel. a hotel is generic. every AirBnB is different. It is an experience. not only might you experience a new city, but you also experience someones life, how he or she or they live. Their view. Plus - this is the time of the Airbnb - experience services - because millennials favour experiences of commoditised consumer goods. and babyboomers want that cake too because of the youthification trend. only retrospective u see the pieces of the puzzle.

Musik-Downloads in den USA erstmals seit zehn Jahren rückläufig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Musikindustrie bieten Streaming Dienste wie Rdio, Deezer oder Spotify neue Absatzmöglichkeiten, auch Internetgiganten wie Google wollen den Boom nutzen. Einzelne Musiker und Bands sehen den Streaming-Trend jedoch mit Sorge. Unter anderem beklagten "Radiohead"-Sänger Thom Yorke und der einstige "Talking Heads"-Frontmann David Byrne, dass diese Dienste mit ihren geringeren Auszahlungen Künstlern auf Dauer kein ausreichendes Einkommen bieten könnten. + http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-improve-music-streaming/ + http://www.spin.com/articles/music-documentaries-netflix-best-streaming-movies/ + Internet Radio Stations (Amazingradio, Capitalxtra).
