Deeper Dive—Takeaways from the TV of Tomorrow Show | FierceVideo


Addressable advertising is already proving out on OTT platforms as a means for targeting deeper audience segments while driving and measuring actual business results. It’s been a little slower to catch on in linear television.

Jason Bolles, senior vice president of advanced advertising at Nielsen, said during a Wednesday panel discussion that it would be great if in two years the addressable ecosystem had been fully enabled and that the industry was gauging the impact. There’s still work to do to get to that point.

Q&A with Neal Mohan: the man with YouTube’s most impossible job | Vox

null
YouTube, the world’s largest video site, has 2 billion users. Most of them just use YouTube to watch … anything.

But some YouTubers put their own videos on the site, too. And those people do that a lot: They upload a staggering 500 hours of video a minute. That’s every. Single. Minute.

How do you police all of the video and keep the worst stuff — like videos that exploit children, promote extremism, or push hate speech — off the site? That’s Neal Mohan’s job.

The easiest way for Mohan, YouTube’s chief product officer and its de facto No. 2 executive, to wrangle YouTube would be to put a wall around YouTube.

But the idea of an open platform, one that allows users to upload anything they want — requiring YouTube and its users to find odious stuff after it’s already on the site — is core to YouTube (as well as to many of Silicon Valley’s most successful companies, including Facebook and Twitter). It’s an ideological imperative, as well as a business and legal one.

Orwell knew: we willingly buy the screens that are used against us | Aeon Ideas


Orwell gives us a couple of clues about where telescreens came from, clues that point toward a surprising origin for the totalitarian state that Nineteen Eighty-Four describes. Taking them seriously means looking toward the corporate world rather than to our current governments as the likely source of freedom’s demise.

If Orwell was right, consumer choice – indeed, the ideology of choice itself – might be how the erosion of choice really starts.

The first clue comes in the form of a technological absence. For the first time, Winston finds himself in a room without a telescreen …

What to expect from the 2018 midterm elections


For the most part, there are two historical truths about the midterm elections: they consistently have a lower voter turnout than the general election and the president’s party loses congressional seats (especially if the president is unpopular).

When it comes to burnout, YouTube is failing its creators | The Verge


In short, the platform’s lifeblood is suffering, and YouTube’s response to the crisis has been terrible.

Making a living as a YouTuber isn’t easy: videos are a time-consuming endeavor, and many creators like to handle every aspect of production by themselves. And because the product isn’t simply footage, but a personality, as well, it is not enough to simply create a compelling video.

YouTubers have to create a sense of upbeat intimacy that makes viewers feel like their friends, and the emotional labor of always having to be “on” makes creators feel like they have to flatten their humanity to make it on the platform.

Laura Lee, Jeffree Star, and the racism scandal gripping beauty YouTube | Vox


The beauty community was recently rocked by a fight that has nothing to do with makeup and everything to do with racist tweets, backstabbing, and apologies.

What began as an insular, churlish fight among former associates/friends has now blossomed into business-threatening drama after a series of racist tweets were dug up from what were thought to be social media graveyards, followed by a series of apologies of varying degrees of perceived sincerity.

I get it: The online squabbling of professional pretty people might seem like inconsequential, self-perpetuating insider drama. But if you peel back its perfectly primed, bronzed, and highlighted skin, it reveals the inner workings of a highly lucrative and powerful industry, how a devoted community helps enable that industry, and how internet celebrity functions today.
