The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — marked Farber’s transition from the media to the new frontier. We don’t know what his plans are, but I’m betting great things are just ahead. Several weeks after Om Malik moved into a full-time executive role in his venture firm, Dan’s move suggests we’re seeing something fundamental in and on the air.
The Gang’s ventures into BitCoin, the politics of news, and the late-breaking Square pullback from the public brink, all seem just shy of the growing Apple TV storm on the near horizon. Hollywood’s gone device crazy getting ready, offering TV Everywhere Oscars in a box for pay customers. Apple’s hobby is at the brink, threatening to disrupt the last yard just as BitCoin paves the way for moving from gold to the dollar to China. A Nixon app can’t be far behind.
