The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, John Borthwick, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — take advantage of the East Coast blizzard to toast some marshmallows on the fire. First up is the Series A drought and impact of the cloud on startup funding. Next, the big pivot to Spoilerland, aka Binge TV.
House of Cards is having just that impact on the television industry, collapsing the mid tier pay networks into an environment much like planes stacked up over Newark. It’s Breaking Bad followed by Mad Men followed by Arrested Development and so forth. How the broadcast networks get past the new air traffic controllers is anybody’s guess, but Netflix continues to confound the experts and delight the customers.
