Good morning, All,
Since we’re often asked if we focus exclusively on New York (answer: no, or at least not intentially), we went and took a look at the SOS readership statistics. Well, it’s true that we’re based here, but it seems we have members who are regularly following the newsletter – and everyone’s progress – from: Norway, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, China, Egypt, Israel, Viet Nam, Thailand, Costa Rica, Turkey, India, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Argentina, Chile, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, Canada, the United Kingdom, Denmark, France, Switzerland, the US, and New York, which let’s face it, is basically its own planet. We are gobsmacked – and humbled – and would love to hear from some of you to get your points of view on what’s going on in technology in your part of the world – literally. We also wanted to take a moment to say danke, dorro arigato, thank you, merci – and we’ve just exhausted our knowledge of the major food groups. Apologies if we’ve left you out. And since you’re all here, wherever you are, you might want to look into: http://www.angelinvestmentnetwork.net/ – they’re global. And hope this helps!
Don’t know what the final numbers were regarding the masses who watched the Royal Wedding on Friday – on line or on the tube. We saw reports of from 275 million to 2 billion. Which is a pretty big spread, and two comments on this subject:
1. A nod to old media: no matter how far technology has come to date, and yes between facebook friends and twitter, it was an exponentially larger and a much more immediate shared experience than the last RW, and no matter on which screen you were watching – terrestrial television or online – remember: it was being delivered to you via broadcast television. Game not over yet.
2. In terms of viewership, don’t know where they got those numbers from, but in light of all that came out last week about privacy and tracking wouldn’t it have been a lot easier – and more exact – had it been tracked by GOOG or Apple or some combination of the two? End of line.
