Gillmor Gang: Daft Monopolists

The Gillmor Gang — John Taschek, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — act their age in the style of Steve Ballmer, who thinks he’s of an older time where the world’s not going. I’m not so sure he’s right about that, what with SnapChat taking a pass on $3 billion ephemeral oh-so-direct messages. Surely the snark social leader fits like a glove with the younger set, but at its core the underlying motives are straight out of Game of Thrones.

At least that’s what I’ve been told, not having caught up yet on TV To Go’s latest offerings. James Spader’s Breaking Badder act on NBC and Scandal’s cliffhanger a week may be symptoms of the New Hollywood as rendered in BYOB(inge) terms, but surely the table stakes are being set anew with Broadcast + 7 the new normal. Plenty going on for a slow week, yet even time for incomprehensible soccer and JSON threads. See you at Dreamforce.
