The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — talked SOPA, Amazon Fire, FaceBook Borging our data and not letting it out, the end of books, the beginning of Pad magazines, and why Spotify, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Starz, Arrested Development, House of Cards, and Comcast cares.
Another Gillmor Gang recorded Monday morning at 9, the show asks the musical question: should we start the week off with a bang or end it with a whimper? In the new world of streaming, nothing is more fitting than messing with the broadcast window from the start. If Congress can only pass bad laws to prop up the content cartel, maybe it’s up to the tech community to turn reality TV into our fantasy of what should happen next.
Produced and directed by Tina Chase Gillmor. Recorded live Monday, November 21, 2011.
