As someone who's worked many jobs with crazy and sometimes ridiculous performance metrics, I can tell you this is clever.

This is not only back, but with gusto.  I'm still not sure I should get my hopes up, but it's looking a little less crazy.

Apparently, there's not enough money being spent, despite the NASA-sized announcement:

Libraries Make Space For 3-D Printers; Rules Are Sure To Follow http://n.pr/1Dyeesa
+Pammy Rembold​ relevant to our conversation from yesterday.
They're the latest addition to so-called "maker spaces" showing up in a number of libraries. But as libraries work to redefine their purpose in the digital age, it also raises questions about misuse.

Now, if you're blue
And you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Putin's on the Ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits

This is somewhat ironic considering superhero stories are modern day mythologies. Other than that, I definitely agree. Hope requires no faith or affiliation. Whedon's skill for showing hope in the darkest of times is definitely what attracts me to his work.



(The clever dialog and characterization is icing on that cake.)
Christians rarely resist a joyful story of hope, and atheist Joss Whedon tells it better than most.

Back in my day we watched the same show every night and we had damn well better have liked or risked getting a paddlin'! That's the problem with you damn kids today, you don't have any respect for brand valuation and distribution channel controls!


Seriously though, this kind of thinking shows a huge disconnect with the market. First, the assumption that any buzz will be gone within a couple weeks is just foolish. Some people will gobble up a show as soon as it's available, others will not. This idea that you can control the "buzz" is based firmly in an aging distribution model. When TV and print were the primary distribution mechanisms, you could manufacture buzz. Now, it's unreasonable to think that you can control that flow of data. You can still "stir the pot" and keep your name in the news (pay attention t to brands like Tesla), but trying to generate buzz can hurt more than it helps. Develop a story fully. Take care with direction and production. Feed consumer desire on their terms. That's how you generate brand valuation.
While Netflix and Amazon may be catering to binge-watchers by releasing all episodes of their original shows online at once -- and even though HBO's online library allows users to plow through enti...

+william crisel​​​ my point exactly. Some people prefer that experience. I'm somewhere in the middle. I've got two more to go. It will be a little over two weeks. The assumption is people will turn off HBO once Game of Thrones is over so they don't want to do that. That just means HBO doesn't have the content quantity necessary to justify a subscription model. They have the quality of content to be a content producer and use a content distributor. I'm assuming the dollar cost of creating their own distribution channel is less than the dollars earned from deals with the cable companies, so they (in a more general sense) have no incentive to change. That will be their undoing. If priced appropriately, they could distribute Game of Thrones directly without subscription. Buy it as a pack or al a carte based on your budget. They could still work out sweetheart deals with Netflix and Comcast if they want (think NFL packages) or even incentivize a subscription "pay $60 for the year and get GoT, True Detective, and <insert new thing here>". Netflix now has a relatively steady flow of new content and substantial other content. At $8 a month it isn't worth my time to turn it off. I could handle, without blinking, several more dollars a month (which I think is coming shortly, that or a "premium tier").

+Asbjørn Grandt​​​ please continue with those thoughts in mind.

I just finished the first episode... it's definitely worth a watch.  Good start to a series.    Who knows if it holds up, but you have my attention.

Now for episode 2...

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research. - Albert Einstein
