Roger shared so many insights in this presentation that I had to listen one more time to try to understand his recommendations. He presents many ideas that are worth pondering. If you haven't yet listened, you should. <a href="http://www.cariboucleanwater.org/"> International Relief </a>

Roger McNamee does a superb job of addressing the changes in technology and how organizations can best survive and even flourish.

I agree. This says it all! Great post and great vid! Quote: Originally Posted by tiedtiger Follow me here if you will: 1. Apple did not say 'the web is dangerous'.

And it's 12%. But really what this is about is this: Lots of content creators are afraid of the un-packaged world, the world where there is no publishing layer to shield and protect them, where they really have to go ahead and do great work. The app store is not the saviour of that any more than iTunes was. And nor, while we're on the subject, is the 100% indexable (that means searchable) HTML5 (which by the way is slower than lighter apps, but that's an aside). Xbox 720 In short, you are reading too much hot air and hoping that it somehow pivots us back toward the broadcast age when only a few music acts were hyper-successful and everyone else was screwed by record labels, and you are doing so because it somehow offends you that Google made a way for the world to come to your door. And all they asked in return was the right to show some relevant advertising alongside those searches (not the work, the searches) as a way to make their business work. Which, since we're on the subject, is no different than all the ads appearing beside articles for your work in NME. I don't see you wandering around demanding NME for some of the ad revenue from Kasabian's new album campaign just because it appeared beside a feature for your band. Search is the best thing to happen since the printing press was invented for writers, artists, film-makers, game developers and anyone else that calls themselves creative. That they are too terrified to learn how to use it is entirely their problem.

Now last year, all smart-phones combined only made about about 1% of all internet usage, so the above is an impressive growth. And when he says Google isn't important on devices like this, he's obviously holding up an iPhone, which ironically uses forfait mobile Google as the default search-engine for mobile Safari.

Music is no longer has scalability without attached proprietary hardware. Anesthesiology has never been. Musicians will have to just make a living like other professionals. ME www.memarkelliottme.com

Incidentally, I tried watching this on my BlackBerry, but "The video is not available on this device"... so I've had to resort to my good'ole Windows desktop. Looks like the future hasn't arrived just yet.

Is he serious about all he states. What the hell. I agree with RagingBeard, thanks for looking up the impressions percentage. Google is dying, where does he come up with this. He is seriously lining up something with Apple. It is so transparent. Let's keep an eye for his new ventures.

This guy is a flat out liar. I know his companies' portfolio doesn't contain Apple, but it's clear he has a biased for their product and this is nothing more than a FUD campaign to further some agenda they've lined up. To correct one of his intentional lies -- which he stated was fact, mobile searches 'now' account for 12% of all paid search impressions, not 1%; http://searchengineland.com/mobile-n...ressions-86121 Now last year, all smart-phones combined only made about about 1% of all internet usage, so the above is an impressive growth. And when he says Google isn't important on devices like this, he's obviously holding up an iPhone, which ironically uses Google as the default search-engine for mobile Safari. It's really easy to debunk anything he says, just use Google's search.
