Interesting and I often wonder if Disney should have been allowed to buy so many media companies.
Good one this weekend.
Totally agree with the 2 speed life explanation.

Good read – the streaming wars are gonna be brutal.
Super excited for Jon and for the new content that will hit The Ken.

Also something in Japanese as well:
Wish I was going.

I used to watch he-man as a kid. This story killed me.
I am enjoying this newsletter. I like the way their referral program works as well.
Check it out!
I don’t have opinions on this but it feels like an overreach.
However it is sad the big platforms have let this happen to the point that the governments want to step in.
My guess is we are gonna hear a lot more about this in Singapore and other countries.
I think about this a lot too – I read the article on the post cause I still had some free views.
I am guessing Fred couldn’t cause he already used his free views, so it is not like he is just reading that one opinion article. 😉
That being said I feel this conundrum more with email newsletters and what I am guessing soon is the podcasts attached to them.
Not sure the ATM analogy works since that is about withdrawing money unless Fred means that you pay somewhere and everyone can pull from it?
This is where crypto is super interesting but all the media plays attached to coins have not worked out.
Something does need to change though since I am NOT gonna be able to subscribe to everything and the big boys will also win the paywall game if we can’t figure out a better model.
