Microsoft makes impressive leap into the Media biz

Interesting article on In short Lisa finds that the new deals Microsoft struck the right way forward. I have to agree and also think that the deals with Facebook and BBC are great news for us. But I would add 2 more recent deals in the same direction which I think are at least as important for getting a place in the media business.

  1. The deal with Control room: PR link here as this will bring live events online
  2. The deal with Director Jackson: Link to the article on BBC here as this will bring real creativity online

And of course for both this will only be on Microsoft’s networks.


Great stuff

  1. What is dangerous is the amoral behavior of larger, multinational corporations. Under the guise of a good corporate citizen, Yahoo reportedly turns in a Chinese journalist for breaking a law in China, which is a freedom in the USA. However, in the USA, Yahoo is oblivious of the civil rights laws affecting the communicatively disabled. This I know from experience. George Orwell told us so.
