    Is Bittorrent Going to be Your New Cable Company?


    When you’re considering companies to apply with for jobs in media, specifically jobs in online video or streaming music, you might have companies like Spotify, Netflix, or even YoutTube on that list. Most of you, we’re going to bet, don’t have Jobs at Bittorrent on the list, even towards the bottom. Maybe you should reconsider that. You don’t want to work for a pirating company, you say. That makes sense, considering your employment there could be in much more tenuous than at other, more legitimate companies. But what if Bittorrent was completely on the up and up? [...] Read More

    Techcrunch Interviews: Laugh.ly The Digital Comedy Play


    Dave Scott got the idea for Laugh.ly after spending a year doing stand up comedy.  He realized how much everyone loves a good laugh and he thought he could be the first one to laugh all the way to the bank for the right reasons.  Scott says that 50 million tickets were sold to comedy clubs in 2015 and believes that is an indicator of the potential for his business. With a similar business model to Spotify, a freemium option with commercials and a $7.99 per month option sans commercials, Laugh.ly will be both an app and a website. But comedy is all about context and Dave explains how he [...] Read More

    2016 Media Jobs in Fintech – Companies to Watch


    Once upon a time there were banks, and there were only banks. This was the extent of the financial industry for the most part, and then came fund management and other extensions of the banking and finance industry. But they were, for the most part, just that – extensions of the existing structure. Then the Internet became ubiquitous, and out of the primordial online ooze crawled PayPal. Suddenly things were different. Since then we’ve been introduced to a new version of the financial industry, known as fintech. A merging of the financial industry and the digital revolution, [...] Read More

Formation 8 is now moving faster than a speeding bullet, Hyperloop FAST!

If you have been following any major trends you’ll know that Elon Musk is in route to rule the world. Well, that may be an exaggeration, perhaps at least Mars, but on a Earth like note, last year he proposed an idea of a transportation method so futuristic that only someone crazy or super motivated would contemplate it. It turns out someone may be both and that organization goes by the name Formation 8.   So what is this futuristic idea and who is Formation 8? Read on! Formation 8 is an investment firm founded by Joe Lonsdale, Brian Koo and Jim Kim, back in 2011. So far they’ve done a superior job of picking some major money generating enterprises with its first fund. They just so happen to include RelateIQ, which Salesforce bought for $390 million, and Oculus, which Facebook bought for $2 billion last year. When they started they had eight employees at launch, and now close to 30 people wander about the office give or take. Let’s not forget the investments made in companies Wish, Radius, LearnSprout, Leeo, and Yello Mobile. Formation 8 is looking for “industry-transforming companies” no matter what their situation is. So in order to…

Skillshare would like to hyper-expand in 2014 by going mobile and adding more courses (particularly in business, design and tech). Current openings at Skillshare. So what makes skillshare different from video-based education platforms like Lynda.com, CreativeLive, Khan Academy and Curious, is lessons that are both live and interactive, as well as courses that are project-based and allow students to learn at their own pace.

The Biggest Name in the Media Industry is the Last Name You’d Expect

They’re one of Apple’s primary partners, appearing at keynotes for new Apple product launches. They are slated to engage in 400,000 hours of streaming live video in 2014, and revenues for the year are estimated at $800 million. By 2016, their revenue projections will hit $1 billion. They’re among the most popular choices for content infrastructure, and one of the biggest media companies in the country. This company isn’t known as a media giant; they’re far more recognizable in other circles, though.   One of the biggest media companies in the industry right now is actually MLB Advanced Media, the tech company of Major League Baseball. How Major League Baseball Became a Media Industry Giant With their innovative approach to media, MLB’s tech division is now considered more of a media company than a baseball organization. MLB Advanced Media began with MLB.com, and was funded through an agreement with the thirty baseball clubs which comprised of $1 million each year over a four-year span. The estimated cost was $120 million, but MLB Advanced Media began turning a profit three years later. After investing less than $75 million, investors started to see ROI, and now those thirty owners are earning annual…
