What is online content worth?

  1. Two things to add:

    The “Riding the Waves of Uncertainty” is a piece of strike propaganda created by Hollywood writers to call out the huge media companies on the “Digita golden age” and one of the key issues of the strike: residuals for new media.

    The other is a Marc Andreessen’s piece about how this strike could in many ways hasten the demise of huge industrial complexes like Hollwood and hasten a new, micro-cosmic age of media, here’s the “thesis:”

    “The writers’ strike, and the studios’ response to the strike, may radically accelerate a structural shift in the media industry — a shift of power from studios and conglomerates towards creators and talent.”

    The idea of this shift to”creators and talent” is kind of weak, but the idea that this strike is dangerous at this moment o media history is fascinating to me, and may explain why both parties are ready to come back to the table so soon. They may be increasingly irrelevant before long!
