Fascinating side discussion on Show Me the Meaning on how movies are becoming great at dopamine release vehicles and why a movie is good is changing.
Their thesis that IP is now the new currency and then movie making is just how a committee decides was also insightful.
Highly recommended listen.
The magic called vectored thrust. :O
It’s still early days. There were 70 years between Gutenberg printing a book and Luther posting his theses. We haven’t even begun to see the real impact of our printing press—the socially mediated, globally connected smartphone; but we’d best get ready for a world in which it engulfs everything. Will the solution be to reinforce institutions that created the world we know, or will it evolve past those moribund institutions to some new way of mediating our communication? A recent Pew study showed that youngsters are better at distinguishing fact from opinion than the olds. Perhaps the new generation, born into a world where global connectivity is a given—but the commanding position of Wired or The New York Times is not—will cobble together some way to maintain institutions like democracy while ones like newspaper editors expire. The survival of the civilization we’ve built since inked letter blocks first hit paper will depend on it.
The point on younger generations being able to better reason out fact v fiction is fascinating.

That’s 2 full hours of listening and many more of researching. This was enlightening and helped me relive some of the Matrix lore.

Good move. And the API seems like a good balance to continue to make it useful.
Marvelously wonderful ad.
