Facebook The Movie: Coming Soon

The West Wing creator says his grandmother has more Internet savvy than he does, and she's been dead for 33 years. Already I'm not feeling it about this movie. Shouldn't someone who knows a little bit about Facebook already and can make a decent movie be working on this project? Seems like there might be one or two around that fits the bill. I am not confident. Looks like a flop in the making and an embarrassment to the Facebook folks. Unless they get some really, really good consultants. Think the Facebook members out there will be kind or critical on the group he's starting on Facebook to learn this Internet thingy -- not a direct quote but it may as well be. From "Aaron Sorkin, a man whose discomfort with the Internet goes way, way back to the days he got angry at the Television Without Pity message boards, is writing a movie about the founding of Facebook."

Amazon may enter college textbook market with new Kindle

I wish I had this when I was in college.

My backpack was filled with books professors made me buy and then used only sparingly throughout the year. This is a brilliant idea. Everyone knows that once you get the kids hooked on something they're hooked for life.

These college kids aren't going to just throw away the Kindle after they finish school. They will continue to use them for novels and business books and resume writing guides, Wall Street Journal subscriptions, and job listing subscriptions, blog subscriptions... The possibilities ate virtually endless.

Boy. Now I want one. Between this and the iPod, my three biggest addictions (books, movies, music) will be fulfilled electronically.

Oh wait. They still haven't gotten to a place where virtual sex is downloaded into my pants, have they? No. OK only three out of my four additions have been filled. Guess it's still bit torrent porn for me until VR porn becomes available and mainstream.

Can GameFly Survive in a VGOD World?

While the music industry offers downloads, Netflix has already embraced the downloaded movie business, somewhat tentatively. I believe that you can now even download movies to your X-Box from your Netflix account, bypassing the need for one of those Roku devices. For gaming, this model just makes sense. X-Box has burst open online gaming with X-Box live. I believe Microsoft has already expressed interest in software that is subscription based. Naturally, gamers would be quicker to embrace such a concept by virtue of their technological advantage and acuity. Then again, I can't see developing GTAIV for the money it cost and then releasing it at the regular subscription price. There will be a premium for these big name releases. Otherwise we'll see quality gaming go down. While subscription based models may increase overall access to more games, without the windfall of a GTAIV-type release, no big box releases will ever come. But I think that with a little tweaking this download, subscription-based model can work for movies, music and especially gaming. (Even books if Amazon has its way with the Kindle!) From the blog post: "What happens when users can download video games directly? Can GameFly survive in a video game on demand (VGOD) world?"

No Matter How NBC Spins It, Olympics Web Strategy Comes Up A Loser (?)

I dugg this because it seemed and interesting and very true take. NBC probably missed an advertising opportunity from a revenue standpoint but annecdotal evidence and from pure hours of streaming video standpoint I see this as a success. It seems that people generally liked seeing lesser broadcasted events and elimination events online (sans commentary) and that led to a cross polination of viewership back to television. From a marketing standpoint, it was a success and proves to be a model of what we can do in the future (or broadcasters can do.) Was Silverlight the right choice? Don't know. Could Flash have been better? Probably. Only because more people use that format and are used to it. (YouTube uses Flash video, correct?) Anyway, while this was a lost revenue opportunity, NBC proved it could handle the challenge of streaming hours of content from a live event and have people generally happy with it, while promoting it back to a television broadcast, leading to one of the most watched TV events in history--from China, no less. Like I said, it was not a failure by any means, except for the bottom line. From TechCrunch: "Despite its special Silverlight-powered Website and more than 2,000 hours of online video, it looks like NBC flubbed its opportunity to make its Olympics Web revenues more than a rounding error. may have streamed 72 million videos and racked up 1.2 billion pageviews, but Yahoo Sports still edged it out with an average of 4.7 million visitors a day versus 4.3 million (source: Nieisen Online). And Yahoo didn’t even have video. NBC is spinning its numbers as a success to the New York Times today, in response an estimate eMarketer put out on Friday that NBC’s Olympics video ad revenues came to only $5.75 million. That compares to $23 million that CBS made from video ads when it streamed the NCAA basketball tournament live on its Website in March."

Beijing Olympics most-watched event in TV history.

So despite all the controversy (or probably more like--because of it) the Olympics this year are set to go down in history as the most-watched television event of all time. We had Michael Phelps (A.K.A. Aqualad) and the Chinese accused of screwing around with time travel and somehow getting children who are too young to compete in gymnastics, aged appropriately before their years. Amazing, those Chinese and what they can accomplish when they put their minds to it, ain't it? Anyhow. In this year of broken records and human rights issues, it seems that Americans don't need all that sappiness and backstory to may hay out of the Olympics. All they need is a mutant and a little good old fashioned Communism. I suspect that the web aspect also fueled a cross viewership to the television. The hype was upheld. Now we know that 2008 Chinese can bang a drum in sync. Who would have thunk it? From the blog post: "Through 15 days of coverage, 208.7 million viewers have watched the Olympics on NBC Universal (including the NBC broadcast network and its cable channels), according to Nielsen Media Research."

Wine Spectator gets scammed. Not sure how I feel about this one. If you check the link to Wine Spectator's website they make a compelling case for themselves but there is something very deceitful about giving out awards simply for cash, no physical visit from a critic required. Though they claim it's a transparent practice, it still takes this kind of scandal to "expose" the "transparency," so to speak. Read the story and decide for yourself. Personally, I would not have guess that their common awards are not visited even by a local stringer or someone else. A listing based on non-visit is fine but calling it an "award" doesn't seem right, somehow. Anyway, read and decide for yourself.
