Finnkinon ja jenkkiyhtiöiden virtual print fee: elokuvalevittämisen uusi painajainen

“Aina kun elokuvaa näytetään digikopiolta, levittäjän pitäisi maksaa amerikkalaiselle integraattorifirmalle satoja euroja per viikko. Hinnasto oli auki, koska sopimuksia ei oltu tehty. […] Hollywoodissa on huolestuttu, kun paikallinen tuotanto lohkaisee taas yhä suuremman siivun elokuvalevityksestä: esimerkiksi Suomessa kotimainen elokuva pärjää taas yhä paremmin.”

Helsingin Sanomien verkkopalvelun tuottaja Pekka Pekkala kirjoittaa kolumnissaan varsin optimistista tekstiä content farmingista (Demand Media etc) ja sen vaikutuksesta laatujournalismiin. En itse ole yhtä optimistinen, mutta sittenhän en tunne journalismibisnestä ollenkaan.

TVkaistan tomitusjohtaja kommentoi poliisitutkimukseksi kasvanutta kiistaa Suomen ainoasta järkevästa TV-palvelusta

Kuten jo tiedämme, vanhoillis-medioilla on jotain sitä vastaan, että ihmiset nauttivat heidän tuotteista ei-kelvottomassa formaatissa.

Content farming: conquering the web by producing cheap content based on search stats

“Most media companies are trying hard to increase those numbers, to boost the value of their online content until it matches the amount of money it costs to produce. But […] instead of trying to raise the market value of online content to match the cost of producing it — perhaps an impossible proposition — the secret is to cut costs until they match the market value.”

You might have noticed how Sturgeon’s Law (“Ninety percent of everything is crud”) lives its own rampant life on the Internet in the form of these ad filled sites with unbelievably shitty how-tos and fake advice. But wait a year or two until clustered ponds of shit like eHow, Cracked and Livestrong might begin to mimic journalism. Quality media has only started its long, stinky journey down the rabit hole/drain pipe of the Intertube

Extensive interview with Rupert Murdoch

From Sky News Australia, touches upon a lot of stuff from the Internet and the media to the global economy and its relation to the US and Australian immigration politics.

Regarding Murdoch’s views on Internet news: I’m the first to admit that my content consumption habits probably don’t reflect those of the general public. I don’t have any new ideas on how to support newspaper either. But I wouldn’t go back and manually read the New York Times Sunday mag. and be ready to pay small sums for it for it, I wouldn’t even know of it, if it wasn’t for content aggregators… Whether the content is free or not beyond the first paragraph, entirely avoiding to be indexed by Google doesn’t seem like a very good idea.

The Man is known for his fondness of giving consumers “choice.” So I simply don’t see the harm in readers or viewers coming in to content outlets from aggregators. I certainly have developed a sense of what I like, using aggregators or filters hasn’t affected my “loyalty” or trust towards content producers in any way other than me not necessarily skimming through all of a single publication in one sitting.
