"If you want to get pays to be ready." Michael Bierut

Michael Rosenblum continues to post stuff that matters, to wit:

"Broadcasters have spent 50 years working in one way - creating content for broadcast - a one way street. You sit and listen. I will create the stuff for you to watch. It’s the ’shut up and take it’ school of content. Which was fine, so long as the technology was dumb and passive.

But it isn’t dumb and passive any more.

It talks back.

Broadcasters are a in unique position to seize the initiative here, because for the moment, they have the attention of the audience. But only for the moment. If they don’t seize that moment and start the conversation, the audience is going to drift away.

Because the product no longer measures up… not to what the technology can do… it no longer measures up to what the technology will do."
