  • Netflux? The demise of VOD 1.0
    16-11-2015
    I was on the beach one early morning, watching a young girl jogging along the sand shore, with half-closed eyes, smiling, enjoying the warmth of the early sunrays. The jogging girl reminded me of Sense8, a recent show from Netflix, with an Islandic girl on some strange designer drug watching the sun rise over a London park. The jogger had the same blissful smile on her face and the same blond, half-long hair. But this time it’s not London, it’s Lanzarote. Connected to Civilization I’m on a holiday in the sun around 3000 miles from home, yet still connected to civilization with 4G/ WIFI and with all my regular gadgets. I somehow expected everything to work perfectly, but it doesn’t. Most of the time my smart phone is connecting through H+ or Edge, both technologies belonging to an ancient past with dead-slow mobile internet. The hotel WIFI has bandwidth which is miniscule or non-existent. Having finally gotten through, I check my social media, news media and e-mail while my ultimate reward is getting visibly closer in the horizon; video on demand! I once read that the brain consumes fewer calories while watching TV shows than while sleeping, and intuitively I know why this is right: While sleeping, at least my brain is trying to sort out my life, organizing, removing and reinforcing knowledge. Some people call this dreaming, but recent neuro research suggests a more practical explanation closer to what AI researchers do to their neural network

A key goal is to give you inspiration on how to deal with the digital business era. Another goal is to get feedback on ideas and thoughts. Have a great digital business era!
