Ken Morrison's insight:

My first game that I felt fit Jane McGonigal's description of 'epic' was TV Sports Football.  I really did not love football at the time.  The the TV style 'reeled' me in. Pun intended :)

Emanuel Maiberg:  "Videogames and sports are kissing cousins and are part of the same family of life known as play."

Walker Fuller's curator insight, December 12, 2013 9:16 PM

Time Warner Cable and CBS Make Up Just in Time for NFL Season

Time Warner Cable and CBS Make Up Just in Time for NFL Season | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
In a resolution that's as timely as it was expected, CBS and Time Warner Cable have kissed and made up. You'll get your Under the Dome as scheduled tonight, but more importantly, you won't miss any of your sweet professional football action.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway:

It is ugly. These deals are always ugly. When elephants fight, ants (subscribers) pay the price.  It is frustrating when one elephant says they are trying to defend the ants. Anyway, my key takeaway is that technology and libraries of back episodes may actually extend the length of the disputes. In an article my Mashable, they were talking about how the subcribers (ants) weren't going to miss any episodes because they were all in the library.  Perhaps it is live sports and live events that are the only thing that will force these deals.

How big was the big game?

How big was the big game? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Baltimore Ravens' victory over the San Francisco 49ers, broadcast on CBS, set a record for highest overnight ratings in Super Bowl history

 

The power outage was an immediate hot topic for quips and questions online. There were an estimated 47.7 million social media posts during the game, according to the company Trendrr TV, which tracks activity on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. That compares with 17 million during last year's game and 3 million in 2010, Trendrr said.

 

 

Ken Morrison's insight:

Super Bowl XLVII falls short of ratings record on television but Trendrr TV released stats today that say that there were 47.4 million social mediaposts during teh game.  This compares to 3 million in 2010.  Ken's note:  Don't forget that the electricity problem prolonged the time for possible social media posts about the game

Lolo Jones Apologizes for Offensive Tweet to Paralyzed Athlete

Lolo Jones Apologizes for Offensive Tweet to Paralyzed Athlete | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Take-away.

In my opinion, this is a bad headline.  Stars can't be expected to research every fan who they respond to.  If this man was so famous, they would put his name in the headline and we would all know about his condition.  The story makes it clear that the situation is not as bad as the headline implies.  However.  I do think this is a good lesson for us to consider sharing with students, peers and children.

Life and death? No, Much more Important than that; How Sport turned into Big Business and a Global Obsession | University of Oxford Podcasts - Audio and Video Lectures | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken Morrison's insight:

I truly enjoyed this podcast about the recent history of sports and culture and broadcasting. It is 50 minutes long.  My favorite part is how in the 1960s, so soccer players refused to wear Adidas shoes for profit.  Althought they were offered a payment that would have equalled one year's salary a few years earlier, they hated the feeling of selling out.  There are important parts of this podcast that help us explore how, when and why war vocablulary entered the world of sports. This is an excellent discussion about the history of sports in the second half of last century from one of the top sports reporters in Europe.

Newsjacking at it's best

Newsjacking at it's best | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

David Meerman Scott wrote a book called newsjacking.  He talks about spotting late breaking news and associating your brand with insight, a solution, a positive message, etc.  

 

Although this is not corporate newsjacking, I think this is a good example of the power of newsjacking:

I love the fake twitter account
