New OECD report shows that connected TVs won't break the internet, but they will break business models | GigaOM Tech News

New OECD report shows that connected TVs won't break the internet, but they will break business models | GigaOM Tech News | immersive media | Scoop.it

Television has gone broadband, and that transition will continue over the next decade as more content finds its way onto IP networks as opposed to the old-school dedicated pay TV networks. As this transition has unfolded, new players like Netflix, YouTube and Hulu have entered the market while both ISPs and big content companies are trying to figure out how to protect their revenue and adapt to this new era.

 

Amid the confusion and competition comes an Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development report full of data that digs into the peering debate that is currently causing customers of certain ISPs pain. This is an issue that, like an earworm, keeps popping up and drives anyone looking to consume internet delivered content on televisions nuts.

 

As I laid out on Wednesday, the issue concerns how internet giants interconnect. Right now some ISPs look at interconnection points as a source of potential revenue — a way to get a company sending large amounts of traffic through to the ISPs end users to help offset the cost of maintaining and building the ISP network. Thus, they want to implement a paid peering model for companies that send a lot of traffic their way.

TN educators, parents mark huge wins against vouchers, Parent Trigger, for-profit charters | Education Votes | NEA.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

In the end, the best efforts and deep pockets of a small army of lobbyists and out-of-state corporate ed reformers weren’t enough to derail relentless Tennessee educators, parents and their allies in their quest to defeat multiple pieces legislation that would have harmed students, educators and schools.

 

When the Tennessee legislative session adjourned last Thursday, educators and their friends breathed a collective sigh of relief, for they had done what few thought possible in a state that has been a hotbed for ill-conceived education reform fads. Vanquished was a bill that would have drained school resources through vouchers, another that would have opened the door to for-profit charter school companies, and yet another that would have lowered the vote threshold for the state’s Parent Trigger law, which educators and parents describe as a back-door attempt by for-profit charter school chains to corporatize neighborhood schools.

 

“It was definitely a battle,” said Arlington high school teacher Lomay Richmond when describing the number of bills and their well-financed backers. “One of the things that made a difference was the constant, personal contact with legislators by teachers, parents and other education stakeholders.”

 

The Parent Trigger legislation, which would have made it easier to close a school or convert it to a charter school, among other options, was pushed by an out-of-state group called Students First. Sponsored by state Rep. John DeBerry, whose election campaign received more than $100,000 from Students First, the legislation did not make it out of committee. The Parent Trigger legislation popping up in states is identical or strikingly similar to model legislation by the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, a powerful and secretive organization of corporate lobbyists and state politicians that churns out model bills behind closed doors.

New Community-Powered Curation Platform: Milq

New Community-Powered Curation Platform: Milq | immersive media | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the review article by The New York Times:
"Social media users know the frustration: a deluge of videos, images and music clips flows through their news feeds all the time, some of it precious but mostly not.

The people behind Milq, a new website and app, say they have one solution: change the network. 
Milq lets users organize songs, video clips and other bits of media around common themes, resulting in something like collaborative mixtapes.

 

By trying to tame the web’s chaos through communities of taste, Milq is entering a crowded field of websites and apps that are betting on the power of human “curation”.
Perhaps Milq’s closest competitor is Pinterest, but Milq sees that personal process and raises it with group curation.
To do this, Milq has come up with something like a new atomic particle of online media: the bead. Milq is set up as a permanent collection of topic pages, or beads, each containing media clips posted by users.

 

Milq is free to use, on the web or on iPhones. (An Android app is being developed, the founders said.) But the involvement of corporate sponsors and media outlets is crucial to its expansion.
Condé Nast is an early media partner, and has been exploring ways to incorporate beads on its magazines’ sites..."

Yes, I agree with my colleague Andrew Nemiccolo, the author of this article -- most business case studies are BORING boring boring.


Good grief -- you'd think by now after all these years of business storytelling work (since late 1990s), we wouldn't find case studies that are not stories. It's sad but true -- we find them aplenty.


Nemiccolo has written a nice piece here about how to get out of the boring case study rut based on a very outmoded structure. He's got a good example of what we typically see. Nemiccolo then poses some questions about the example to turn it into a story.


Get with the program folks! Read this article and re-write  your case studies so you can get more traction. Don't leave business on the table with case studies that will put your readers to sleep.
