The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Doc Searls, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — go through an entire show (almost) without mentioning Apple’s big event next week. Instead, we discuss Netflix’ new 26 hour movie model, why news silos can be good for you, the relationship between the Republican primary process and the secret source of innovation, and Cluetrain vs. the carriers.
Doc’s theory that Verizon killed fiber to get into the mobile market certainly does raise some eyebrows, but @scobleizer is happy just sucking down data because he’s living in the future. Me — I’ve been living in 1919 and Downton Abbey, waiting for Mad Men to return. So it goes in the Land of Licensing, where the only thing we own is the electric bill.
