Georgia Gibbs Design's insight:

For Syfy's Defiance it's "life in a petri dish". Everyone is examining their  multi screen convergence, and the apparent success so far, for a working model that can transfer to other shows. Sadly, with the general lack of imagination we seem to get from Hollywood what viewers can expect with a degree of certainty is a lot of clones.

Concurrent prepares for world without set-tops - FierceCable | tvRemote | Scoop.it
Georgia Gibbs Design's insight:

You may ask: "So why do I care?" This is the story of our future unfolding and it will have huge ramifications in our daily lives and, for many of us, our livelihoods.

 

We are all looking for ways free ourselves from the "ties that bind us" be it the desktop computer, cd players or set-top boxes. As much as we are overwhelmed with the amount of time and the physical space demanded by our personal electronics, companies too are seeking to free themselves from the yoke. Eliminating the ownership of a specific device from their delivery chain allows them to respond to market demands faster. They can now allocate resources for true innovation and not implementing tools to bridge innovation with legacy products. More exciting times ahead!

Social TV: Facebook Vs. Twitter Vs. Tumblr

Facebook is more of a closed off platform. Facebook's challenge is to provide tools to give access to the conversation that happens on Facebook.
Georgia Gibbs Design's insight:

This is the race to watch. I prefer Twitter because you can so easily step outside of your "friends" into a public conversation. Twitter just doesn't have the bagage of Facebook when it comes to simple interations and the risk fo bumping into privacy issues. Trying out second screen apps in the past was anticlimatic when they depended on my connections for the interaction value. If none of of my friends had come on board with that app it was like showing up for a party on the wrong day.

The Olympics and Second Screen - not so great

The Olympics and Second Screen - not so great | tvRemote | Scoop.it

While the 2012 Summer Olympics has certainly been appropriately dubbed the first "Social Olympics" (Twitter and Facebook comparisons discussed daily on the broadcast discussions by commentators) and even NBCU has come out and described it as a TV Everywhere success (streaming every event live for authenticated Pay TV subscribers in the US), it has be abysmal for Second Screen enthusiasts.

 

Don't get me wrong--I think the streaming capabilities to watch the events live were usually well delivered, and I have nothing against the massive Twitter and Facebook discussions. I guess my point of view stems from the belief that until now, it has been live sports that has really driven the most valuable use cases for a second screen or companion app while watching the first screen, usually resulting in a more engaged consumer. Knowing the stats of the football, baseball or basketball game of key players, updated in real time, is a big plus for the sports enthusiasts (of any sport). But somehow, the Olympic implementations fell well short.
