"Tuned into black on the air with lou. Thanks for tuning in you. Guys are really appreciated Wanna thank everybody For listening have a really Interesting show today charles. Blow the new york times. Columnists book called the devil. You know black. Power manifesto where he Proposes something very interesting in it Based on the great migration conforto conversation with charles sees. He's a very interesting guy. Had him on the nightly show years ago and He's very has some very interesting ideas. So we're gonna get into that a lot about black culture in that sort of thing. What's happening right now. So i won't talk about that in my Into now because we're going to cover a lot of that. But i do want to talk about some of those issues coming up. Not just for stream on you know. This is back in the air. But there's a lot of issues out there. And i believe there's a lot of i'll call it. This isn't a good phrase. But i'll call it mission confusion and the reason why i'm saying that i think there's a lot of A lot of things the black community. And i know i'm over generalizing here so i apologize for that that i think i need in order to accomplish a lot of different goals in there. They're not necessarily connected and one of the things. I'll be covering a coming up in the future not today but i want to put this on your mind. So you know i'm going to be talking about this is i. I think there are two things going on out there that are sometimes in conflict with each other. When it comes to the back community. And i will call them racial justice of versus racial grievance. Okay so i want to put that out there to you. And i'm not gonna. I know i'm teasing right now. Not gonna go into detail right now. 'cause actually have a good top charles bo coming up in and we'll talk about some of that but i want to put that out there. These are two kind of separate issues you know. One just is kind of based on laws and transforming the way that institutions are structured in and grievance which is for me kinda base more in opinions in people's feelings and up things like that. But i'm i'll go into more detail about that later. Little bit different But both very interesting both very wrote both very important. You know they're just. They're not always in cooperation with each other is one of the issues. And i think there's not always clarity around that so because i don't have a lot of time today I wanted to just say give a shoutout to The people who are on the ground helping everybody in texas right now that is gone through took time with the weather. not helped anybody did crews going to cancun which is kind of a funny story this week. But what's not funny is what's happening so many people are you know just without food and you know they're in situations they'd have faced before you know. A lot of the countries used to this type of weather but there are places that aren't used to. I'm one of those kind of places if we had that type of thing here in southern california. It'd be a mess as well but there are a lot of organizations out there that are doing some really good work. Give a shout out to my niece. Vanessa vanessa wilmore. Who is doing some of that. Work yourself with the feed. The people dallas which is a great organization and they give food directly to people They they i know they collect money but more than money. They collect resources that they can give directly to people that needed. 'cause sometimes money is great. You know you need money for things but sometimes people just need water. You know like right now you know or you know food to feed the kids right now you know and so Those grassroots organizations like that that are ended on the ground and there's a lot of them. I just mentioned hers. Because she's my niece and she's doing. I'm really proud of her. She's doing good job down there but there there are other organizations like that. I encourage you to look line if you can help. That's great you know All the support is really welcome. And finally you know i. I sent him keeping unsure because they don't have the time to.

Fresh update on "netflix" discussed on Building Psychological Strength
"Netflix will and then look at what that's doing eating up your twenty four hours right. We all have the same twenty four hour so if you're going down it didn't draw that line eighty two levels later than than someone else. That's just eating up your time contributing but that busy feeling yeah. Yeah so it's just wild because it's that studied in such a nice job of saying okay. There's this number of hours that we spend working and we've no doubt increased efficiency over time we as a population. Get more done in the same amount of time than we used to. That's incredible and that's a lar- large part in thanks to this incredible technology and whatever that we've put in place but the number of hours is very similar. It's just the way that our it for hardware interacts with a more modern climate or context. That makes it feel busier. That's interesting with this busy hustle culture. I also think about a conversation that i had with my mom years ago when i was first starting out in in atlanta my dream job was awesome and i was working a lot and it was work that i felt good about It was like it's important work. I felt good. But i remember having a conversation with my mom and she sad like wow every time i talk to you. You're just so busy. 'cause that's what had been saying to her. How are you. i'm so busy. I'm so busy i'm so busy and then it came across this article that i read. That was more like a blog post but about business as a badge of honor. It made me think you know for me that definitely was kinda wrapped up in what it means to be professional and doing a good job and that this sort of sugar expectation that that we need to be busy and in our culture at least in the us. That's very much a piece of it right. I see right. It's who are involved in late. Nineteen different extracurriculars plus their homework plus their school. There's no time to relax and play outside and be a kid anymore and that's yeah happening for adults too so we've got these real or perceived expectations these pressures to do more. Which makes it.
Associate Editor at Game Informer Magazine, Kyle Hilliard, on The State Of VR Right Now
"What is the gaming industry and by that. I mostly mean developers. What what does the industry think about developing and just the market is it clearly a sliver compared to other things. But do they think like. It's maybe on the cusp of being something. That is interesting. Yeah so. I don't. I don't have numbers obviously but like so to get into my background and just in case your listeners. Don't really know me. I wrote for game informer magazine for eight years as there for a long time until i was we had like right when right when the oculus rift came out like we had an issue like vr issue. Right and we. I remember getting test kits into the office and playing early games and stuff like that and at that time we kind of went in with the mindset of like okay. Well this is like a new. This dobie xbox. They'll be nintendo and they'll be oculus that's kind of how we felt about it like it would just be this other competitive corner of video gaming and now all this time later which is a. We're going to maybe like four or five. Six years later feel like it has found its spot and like you said like beat sabre. Which is the fantastic i played. I almost literally played every day. I love beat sabre Has sold gangbusters There's like i think facebook released a blog that said something like thought they had five other. Vr titles at it sold a million copies which was cool. And so where we're at now is it's interesting because it's not what i thought it would be. Where would be like just as competitive as like the switch. You know what i mean. It would just be another platform that you know hardcore gamers like me would have in their home but it's increasingly kind of become this like weird separate thing that even non gamers are kind of getting into like i've i'm like i've heard of people have met people who aren't really big video gamers but they do have a headset. And they like vr because it does have kind of like what you were talking about earlier. It has practical applications beyond video games. You know you can kind of around the world and see things. I use it to work out like. That's my main exercise purpose lately as i tried to play oculus like at least once a day for thirty minutes played exercise games and beat because they're very movement centered so it's it's closer to like the mobile market. I feel like we're there's a lot of disparate things floating around that are trying to find their niche as opposed to like someone like me. Who's like i have an xbox series s x. I have a playstation five and i got my oculus rift like that's not super common. It's almost treated as like you know gamers like it but it's not like it's not it's more than a video game machine you know. It's like ninety percent of video game machine but like that ten percent is really lifting it up and people are finding that way. Well so this is gets into my sort of disappointment with what i what is out there. Obviously this would have been one of the times where. Vr should have had its breakthrough moment like a lot of things including video conferencing of had The pandemic times now. There are apps on their from companies. That are clearly the eight even says. It's like we'll use this to remote work with your teams and you can all meet in a space and you know whiteboard together and you know. Even you know sketch things and and in a three d. environment especially frano architects and things like that. I can see that but none of it's very good that i've sampled like i would think there'd be more of that. There's also there's also a handful of things that are like we'll watch a movie with your friends and you go into a virtual Sort of movie theater and by the way. All of the like netflix and and prime video they all have apps that essentially you can watch anything you want on a virtual big screen which is very nice for lying down in bed and stuff. But i'm wondering if like they missed a trick like there is nothing that was like a breakthrough during pandemic times for just being virtually with other people. Yeah right when the pandemic started. I remember i think it was fun. Mation was selling tickets to go. Watch a cure with an audience in oculus and i love cura is like one of my favorite movies and i like we are but even i was like i look at that mike. I want to do that like yeah. The resolution on the headset just isn't there like it's basically like shoving a like a switch. Well let me take them. It's better than a switch screen. It's like it's a higher resolution switch green but like it. Just can't look as good as your desktop for work or your four k tv in your living room. It's just it's like you have to accept that limitation in order to participate like i saw this Which i had never seen until today. Maybe because you are emailing me about vr. Google is like oh let's send this guy. vr ads but it was like it was like. Yeah what will like. Let's let's have a workspace. You can have as many monitors as you want and you can have a virtual keyboard. Obviously it'll be but there'll be a virtual keyboard and it's like that's a really interesting idea. But i'm not gonna take that resolution downgrade in visuals. I'm not going to be able to see that. Virtual computer monitor. As well as i can't if i'm just looking at my standard computer monitor and it's not worth that dive and

A Value Manager on How Most Value Managers Are Getting It All Wrong
"Tracy now one of the things that we discussed number of times in twenty twenty but also maybe before it just sort of the. I guess you'd say permanent state of crisis that you call it in so-called value investing. Yes it's it's certainly been a long running team has an and i feel like we've done quite a few episodes on it at this point up but twenty twenty didn't exactly turn things around for value investors either. No definitely not. And i think like there's really two strand. The tend to emerge in our conversations. And i i would characterize him as this one is that there is some cyclical element to value. Investing in this psychologist. Hasn't turned around yet. So it's like we have this sort of long multiple expansion kind of low growth fed driven economy that sort of creates this permanent bid for growth companies at the expense of value Week gdp growth cetera. Just like certain industries are going to thrive in that environment. And then i'd say the half. is that no. The problem is that we are not good at defining value in their people have sort of taken more accounting approach and say traditional measures of the stocks. Cheapness like say price to book value. Just these measures don't work in a world. where so much value is intangible right. This is the idea that as companies well the sort of successful companies nowadays are investing a lot. They're investing a lot in things like their brands. And other intangible assets that just aren't captured by price to book value and so a company that's positioning itself for a really good future performance. Might not actually look that way. If you're just glancing at something like price to book you know like it's sort of a joke and i think we've talked about it with on local mobilizing Last year woodard. But it's like you can rescue value investing if you call netflix value. Stocker if you call facebook values and someone would say okay. These companies don't have big like factories that can easily be measured. But if you could somehow put a number on the value of the facebook network as an asset then you could then you could theoretically imagine a world in which some traditional values screen facebook comes up right. I mean the thing that still makes me uncomfortable about value. Stocks is that you're you're still investing in something on the basis that the market has somehow mischaracterized. Its future which. I think you touched on this with your narratives but i think in the current environment where we talk a lot about flows based Investing a lot of momentum trading things like that it feels like the market is quite consistently directing capital to you know a few firms. And then it just keeps doing that and those firms overvalued in overvalued in overvalued and if you're not in that cycle i don't know i just feel like it's unlikely that you're going to get back in it and the longer it takes you to get in the more you're sort of losing out in terms of valuations but anyway sorry. I'm going on it. no no. it's great. I mean the other thing and i think it's sort of related to your point. Is you know it's nice to say like okay like there's some intangible value that we if we could only measure at netflix's or facebook or whatever it is but it seems hard to know in advance that it's there and so it's like okay if you have some like factory than you can say okay. This exists and historically speaking it will Project over the next ten years. It's going to throw this cash and that's a good value. It feels like a lot of these sort of like backing into the value approach. That it's very much easier to say. In retrospect or ex post facto. Oh this turned out to be a very valuable asset that they have which is sort of nice. I guess for maybe an intellectual standpoint but it doesn't really help you like pick stocks today which ultimately care about these discussions great to say okay to facebook network is worth a lot of money but you know. I wish you had told me that. Six years ago now but it does help Different investment companies. Come up with the different strategies factors to come up with different definitions of value. That always work when they're back tested against historical data right so i guess the question is that sarcasm is coming through on the podcast. But i gotta tracy the looking for is the approach that works in advance. That's not just back tested. And some you know some approach that can help us identify sort of deeply under a company undervalued companies today using some something whether it to metric whether to screen whether it's some other intangible measure something that doesn't just helpless rationalize the past but can you know help Help me Retire a few years earlier. Yeah and also maybe even explain why value investing as it's commonly understood has performed so badly For so long.

Microsoft may make its xCloud service available on a browser
"Do you play xbox games on your web browser microsoft maybe working on making its ex cloud game streaming service even more accessible writer chang. This is your daily charge here. Talk with us about x. Cloud gaming expert offering zola's so what is the latest with ex cloud. So right now myself is testing the streaming platform on web browsers report game outset company. Employees are currently testing it. And this comes before the big public preview the expectation for that is sometime in the spring where everybody else is going to be able to play the browser and for our listeners. Who aren't hardcore gamers. What exactly is cloud. Ex code is microsoft's streaming service. It's it's like the netflix video games. You pay a monthly subscription and games are available of via the xbox game pass and that could be streamed to your android device. It's a ciccio like having an xbox in the cloud ryan what games are we talking about these sort of current titles as it sort of back catalogue of older titles is anything is basically a free for all. It's a very wide range. Aid comes so you have. All the microsoft owned properties which includes of course like halo Bethesda games like fallout. So you have those games And also a lot of the newer games What the brand new ones and medium that's available and that's an xbox series access. Gabe came out. And you can play it on there. So you have those you have the bigger titles those you have any titles. You have odor games so we too wide range of what's available on the xbox xbox game pass got end in terms of the devices you know. There's the browser that we're talking about today you mentioned android. What about iphones ipads will. This is where the news of the web browser is the big news. This will allow ex class. Actually play on ipads and iphones will. What happened was win. Marks off tried to get x. Cloud approved by apple For the app store Apple said well since this includes two hundred games. Do you need to submit every game to be reviewed and of course that's a that's a paid especially since they switch out games every every mother's new games that come in and new games at go out so instead a string of Indicates amazon. Luna which will talk about embiid They're doing their service via web browser. And that sort of sparked. The idea of marks off of mike up began working on that. So yes this will allow people with iphones and ipads to play to stream games of the x. Cloud and of course people general that have a laptop heavy Chromebook have a would have any sort of windows. Device will be able to stream xbox games to it as long as they have a subscription got in so give me a brief state of the game streaming world. You mentioned amazon. Luna is obviously google stadia. What's what's been going on with the various cloud gaming services out there so let's with the big ones stadia stadium is going through a bit of a bit of a tough time. At the beginning of the month dugal said that they are shutting down their in house developers. So right now. Google is not making any games for stadia. They did say though last week that they are going to have a hundred four games. Come out for stadia. Twenty twenty one in general though it still hasn't caught on So there's not a lot of excitement for it as much as it was with. Google first announced it that people have tried and it's just not capturing every everyone then like i mentioned amazon luna. That's right now. And the early access phase people could sign up board. And they maybe picked to try it out if echoed x. Claude is the net flicks for video games. Amazon is appropriately. The amazon prime video of video games in that. There is the for the monthly subscription. Seven dollars you will get access to a certain number of games. Then if you want you can pay a couple bucks more and you'll get another you'll get you'll get access to another catalog like. Ub sauce games. So that's how they're gonna do it to where everybody's going to be able to sort of pick choose what they want. But they're sort of base line of games that are going to be available for the monthly fee de force that is for. Pc gamers wanna take their pc games and play it on a their their phone tablets or black or laptop if they don't have a gaming laptop that had a stumble row stumble last year when it launch because they invidia put out all these games available for streaming. But they didn't tell the publishers so the allergies publishers kept just pull their games from the g force now So it took a while for them to serve sort everything out now the services going smoothly It's actually free but you only get to play an hour for free but If you pay if you pay or you'll get a better access better better fidelity as well as well unlimited time. So that's also available of o'clock eighty. What about sony nintendo some of the other big players in the gaming world. Well sony was the first one to do cloud gaming. What their playstation now That launch back with the playstation four and not early on in the playstation. Four lifetime and sony just has not put any effort into it They release a few games for for its They'll they keep it. Keep it moving. But there's maybe a million or two subscribers which is hardly anything in comparison acts cloud It's just not not their priority at all I don't know if it will be. They'll if sony will change your mind in the future but as of right apple station is just stare sermon. Afterthought as for nintendo. They don't have a netflix type. Service yet The maybe that's the planning they do have a cloud streaming though For hey different reasons. So games like control. That is a very intense graphic game. It is just very beautiful looking and wouldn't it wouldn't attend all has done is dave. Dave reached out to a they partner up with a few publishers and developers and they are allowing these games to stream to the switch. So you still get all the scrape the -delity like you would on an xbox or playstation But you have it on your switch and that prevents the developers from having to create a very a very cut down low graphics low fidelity version of the game that we've seen with some other titles duke maternal win borderlands where they just have to cut out so much where it's doesn't look as great in it's on his memorable so that available but again that is for very different reason than say x. Cloud stadium got and we just went through or still going through the launch of new hardware right with the xbox series acts the ps five taco middleware streaming fits into the future of gaming well in the case of marcus off especially they want you to be connected all the time they want you to when you're at home they want you on your xbox. They wanted they play games. But they want you to look in netflix. Or whatever when you're on the goal they want you to be on the app so you could play games while your way And you're you know if you're at work the what you pull up your browser sake play while you're not working but So that's who marks off once they want you connected all the time and they have like they have the best option for that It gives everybody else. They're trying to find they're trying to get a piece of this because they know that there's a lot of people that wanna play games that maybe do not wanna spend for five hundred dollars on the latest new york so they're trying to find a way to get in there And it's they're. They're all taking their stamps at offering their takes on what the cloud services going to be. So are we ever going to get to a point where we can drop the hardware and the console entirely like you said there are folks out there who may not wanna drop five hundred dollars on a new system bogut appoint were that just completely. Needless completely out of the equation. Everybody's expecting this generation to kind of be the The real he wanted to determine whether we go with or without consoles. It's i still think we're going to need hardware.

The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'
"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

This startup is making customized sexual harassment training
"Is raising money. And i think this is a really cool company and i want you to tell us all about it. Athena raised money in june with two million round for anti harassment software that it would send to companies and companies basically. Install it for their employees. You'd get a nudge every month. Five minute training and it'd be kind of this idea of making a more flexible way of learning about how to deal with modern situations that might rise up better than the one hour lecture. This is a shift in its focus. Because before was doing kind of one thing and now it's doing a broader array of things when it raised in june was just doing anti harassment in zoom and slack world and now eight months later. It's another two million co led by the same firm. Gsp that let first round of it's and it's going into anything compliance related whether that's how to make sure you are not doing insider trading by mistake or or other bits like that and it's they leaned on big customers which was the impetus for this round including netflix's doom and send us and so for an early stage startup. Those are big names. They have twenty thousand active employees completing their monthly training which the co founder is a positive signal that it's at least getting engagement in some way. Are you currently caught up on your corporate training for verizon media group as managing editor one of my wonderful tasks at the company is to actually monitor our employees to make sure they follow all of the different trainings that they have to do. Because i am the one who gets. The e mails for a bunch of folks that says so and so is sixty days later on their annual compliance training. We will delete thirty male if they do not respond immediately. Did not know that was a state attorney question again dan. Natasha and i caught up on our vm. I think you're mostly caught up february's if you are not cut up would have been fired because most the recordings are due in december. So if you haven't done them you would be out nailed it tauscher. There's also some grows numbers and our notes here. Something like two hundred and fifty percent growth quarter over quarter. What is that metric tracking in the athena's since it was tracking basically the amount of people who are on the platform amount of learners. That are coming to athena. Obviously those big contracts and mentioned earlier help them be able to prove that like any startup. right now knock sharing revenue profitability et et cetera. They're just hoping to use this money to gain new customers and figure out that stuff. Later is spelled. E. t. h. e. n. a. Not of in ethene like it's like patina but it's not blockchain related. I usually ask founders for the story behind their name but recently i guess i have not been good enough to that curious enough about how that came together. I think the idea of little mini modules. Make sense. I mean some of the things i actually remember. From compliance training are like mini modules for instance detectors by verizon media and reisen media's owned by and say verizon because it has infrastructure works with government a lot and so in our corruption training which had to take. Oh yeah there's this great story of like you're working hard at work in the field and you have a city official with you. Can you offer them a bottle of water on a hot day. And i was like stir and there's like wrong committed bribery and corruption and a dig radiation to american society. You may not offer anything of value. Not even a penny. You can't offer free water bottle or kick cat.
Disney smashes streaming subscriber expectations
"We start off with disney delivering in its latest company smashing streaming expectations the stock higher in the after hours session. Let's get straight to julie abortion. Who is fresh off that disney call julia. Melissa earnings call underway right now. The stock up nearly three percent after the company exceeded expert expectations on the top line in reported a profit rather than the loss analysts anticipated. Now the two key areas in focus parks and streaming both outperformed expectations disney's streaming business outpaced projections going to ninety five million disney plus subscribers and one hundred and forty six million total direct. To consumer customer is now that includes hulu and espn plus that division grew revenue seventy three percent from the year earlier quarter especially pleased with the success of our correct. The consumer business and our recent strategic reorganization has enabled us to accelerate. The company. Said it was a dc first business model and further grow our streaming services disney plus has exceeded even our highest expectations. Meanwhile the parts visions revenue dropped less than anticipated down by fifty three percent the company announcing that covert has headed two point six billion dollar impact on the parks divisions operating income as a result of closures and reduced capacities. Where we've been able to reopen are with limited capacity guest have consistently demonstrated a willingness and a desire to visit which we believe is a testament to the fact that they feel confident. In the health and safety protocols we've put in place average daily attendance at walt disney world significantly from q for q one japex saying they're continuing to invest to build out different features of their parks and they said they are very pleased with the reservations and consumer interest in visiting parks. Melissa of course that's going to be in focus as they start to get to be able to increase their capacity in florida and are allowed to open up here in california. All right julia. Thank you julie. Borsen the latest on disney. Which is up three percent after hours. Dia dommie how do you like the stock. How do you like what they said on this. Call well kudos again. I mentioned the last night sort of took a pass on the kudos. I'll give it to her anyway. And tim who've been all over this and so listen. I'm not a huge fan of treadmills and this is going somewhere. Mel by the way suggest indulge me for a second but you get on a treadmill. You go eight miles an hour maybe walk. Maybe put down your honor for forty five minutes but when you get off your exactly where you started and i bring that up because listen. It's great that they keep adding people to disney plus i get it but as rich greenfield amongst. Many others pointed out our food down twenty-eight percent every year i'll tell you what that means because that's the game we play here but effectively a lot of ways that running in place. Now the naysayers will say. That's a bad thing. That's going to lead to decline in stock. And the optimists will say they're going to be able to monetize all those people there all by drew barrymore short with the delorean on it and those types of thing and maybe they'll go mr toad wild ride when the parks reopened. I'm not nearly as optimistic. So it's not a great ride valuations now or at levels where i don't think it necessarily should be okay and then it pick up on that point because i also read that tweet so this past quarter the arp average revenue per user was four dollars and three cents for disney plus and a year ago is five dollars and fifty six cents. Tim should we not care about this at this early stage of growth for disney for the streaming service. I don't think so. I mean i no. I don't think so. And i think you know guy may be like george jetson on the treadmill. I avoid treadmills i. I'd rather be out there and disney's running through the streets right now with with ninety five million and essentially when you add in hulu and espn plus. We heard those numbers. This strategic reorganization is part of the excitement. Here again. this division is up. Seventy three percent during a period when netflix is been in a sweet spot of engaged in couldn't be in a better position disney's outperform the stocks outperform disney from net flicks by almost forty percent since since august. But even over the last couple of years it's outperformed net flicks which we would all certainly agree is also making a move especially in terms of profitability. But again do we care about that. With netflix's should we care about that with disney when also they're showing that they can at least be profitable and their core business through very difficult times on the way out of kobe. So look i understand the profitability issues. At some point disney's got to create their own content. We know that's very expensive. But if you're asking me you know from from an investor's perspective. Am i happy with with the metrics that are driving the stock to move higher and thirty nine times five bucks. A share of two thousand and twenty two is is not expensive when you consider what is being paid for net flicks.
Justice Department drops challenge to California net neutrality rules
"Earlier this week. Department of justice dropped its challenge of california's net neutrality law. You might remember. The california introduced law after the trump administration rolled back the obama era policy which was creating more equal internet access. Trumping the doj's challenge could signal a return to net neutrality. So here to get us back up to speed and discuss what the impact of a change be is. Our reporter drew fitzgerald. Hey drew thanks for joining me shortly. So it's been a little while since we've talked about net neutrality and this is a complicated topic besides start here with a little bit of a primer. Can you explain what neutrality means and where it comes from well net neutrality. Is the idea that the company providing you access to the internet whether it's through cable a cell phone connection satellites. Whatever can't pick favorites if you're shopping online or watching netflix. Video or talking to people on zoom. Your internet provider shouldn't get away of those activities by blocking traffic or slowing. Some of the data down to make other services were better. That's the principle in practice. The federal government under president obama road rules discouraging a lot of activity with some exceptions. There were some loopholes that allow for a little bit more traffic management for cell phone providers. There were other rules dealing with privacy but on the whole it prevented the sort of blocking or throttling traffic. That open internet advocates had really worried about. What's the argument on each side of this issue. Will supporters of these rules argue that the modern economy flourished really because internet providers didn't control things too much look at google and amazon also look at net flicks that exploded even though provided entertainment. That competes directly with some of the cable tv providers. That were serving their netflix videos. Over the internet deponent's net neutrality. Rules argued that they're not really needed. Because these companies provide internet service and if they blocked or seriously degraded some of the websites and content that their customers want customers. We get mad and it would be bad business. Another argument against the net neutrality. Rules especially in washington has been that it would open the door to price regulation to setting prices. That's something that companies like. At and t. and comcast are very fearful of don't want the government involved in got it so net neutrality policies again. That's the idea that internet service providers shouldn't be able to pick favorites. That was an obama era policy. What was the trump administration's approach. Where did they follow. And how do they handle. Net neutrality will the trump administration opposed those rules and the new chairman of the fcc at the time named by president trump rewrote them They introduced new regulations that completely revoked the guidelines that the democratic led. Fcc headset few years before they also tried to make rules. That would deter states from writing their own regulations and they argued that the state of california had overstepped its authority when it filled the gulf and and wrote its own rules right and let's talk about that. California's law escalated into legal battle with president trump's. Doj what happened there. And why is it so significant that this happened in california. Yeah that's right. California did pass this law during the trump administration to try to protect the types of activities that the obama administration had supported and california's not ordinary states. The biggest state in the country as we've seen with other sorts of rules on greenhouse gas emissions internet privacy. If they pass a law that is sustained. It has the effect of really setting the agenda on a national level. A national company can't very well have rules for the rest of the country and ignore a with forty million people in it so it has the effect or it would have the effect of protecting net neutrality principles on a national level if it were put into effect now. The important thing to remember is that those rules have gone into effect yet. Pending legal challenges right and among them was a lawsuit from the trump administration's department of justice. But now that the new biden administration is in office. There department of justice is dropping that suit against california's net neutrality law. What does that tell us about how this administration could approach this issue. Well it tells us two things one is that the biden administration like most democrats still supports neutrality. Rules that are enforceable and doesn't want to get in the way of what california's doing they're aligned in their ideals. They're the second thing it tells us. Is that the diner administration. Ministration should be eager to have those california rules go into effect and become the law of the land essentially because it doesn't yet have a lot of power to act on a federal level. The fcc today is led by acting chairwoman jessica rosenworcel but is a two to split by administration. Hasn't yet named another commissioner to fill the five member commission or named a permanent chair person which really ties the commission's hand in writing the sort of sweeping rules that it did under the obama administration
New York Times CEO Meredith Levien on the future of news, and her newspaper
"You think there's a hundred million people around the world that want to pay to read news digital news in english so once you get to your ten million which will come sooner than later. What's the next reasonable milestone for you guys. What are you looking out yeah. That's a great question. I'll just say it's nice to see everyone's one of my favorite gatherings every year. So thanks again jason. For for having me Let me let me actually step back. And just talk a little bit about the hundred million as the addressable market on for the times and i think for probably many others in this room i also said yesterday there was something like a billion people who read digital news so i think one hundred million as a potential audience of people who will pay for it in english. It's probably a conservative number. The market day from what we can tell of people who pay for english language digital news probably eighty million. Roughly divides has in the united states. And half beyond so. I say it is hard to imagine the times at seven and a half million total subscriptions today having mortgage here. That's you know two three even even four times that over time. And i'd say with plenty of other room if you assume one hundred at least one hundred million plenty of other room for other quality independent journalism outlets to survive and to thrive in that. You got ahead of me on the is is the new york times gonna swamp else in the news business question but you know netflix. For years as they were growing their business and they were often pitting themselves against hbo. They would take pains to say just because we're growing doesn't mean it's at hbo's expense. A lot of our subscribers are also subscribing to hbo now. There are many more people going after that same market. What percentage of time subscribers are subscribing to another news product. That's a really good question. I expect we have a fair number of people who subscribed multiple products. One of the things we don't do is journalism at the local level outside of our our home market so i think there are plenty of people who still subscribe to local news organization. They're applying people who still subscribe to something that's in a in a special interest in business or sports or otherwise and i'll just take up on on what you're saying and we to disney which came many years after net flicks and because the quality and frankly the specificity of their product This specificity of of who their brand is or has been able to grow and put up a historic. You know i i. I guess year In in the streaming business even wall net flicks also put up the historic year. Hbo max numbers are nothing. Sees that either. But our time is infinite. Most bank accounts are finite when someone is subscribing to the time do you think they are moving money away from another news product. You think it's often a new are new to paying for news and do you think they're thinking about this. As this is my new subscription versus mice spotify versus my. Hbo versus my netflix. Or is it all just one big pool of discretionary subscription spending. I think it looks more. Listen i don't. I don't have a perfect answer and were thinking hard about this as the question. You're you're asking me. But i do think it looks more like the thing you said than i. Which is. i'm going to subscribe to a number of services that help me in our case understand the world and potentially live a fulfilling life. I think amazon prime is a great example of a subscribe. For a number of reasons. I subscribe so get my paper towels faster. And i subscribe so i can read my son at the right books at night and so i would think of it more or the same way. Let let me say one thing though. Because i think you're really poking at drama we think how do we think about the market in. What does it mean for others. I actually think we're still. It's a heartwise. Say a billion readers digital news much more willingness to pay in the world at least one hundred million people who will pay. That's us trying to narrate. How big an opportunity we have. But i think it's kind of a big opportunity. Generally and i do think those forces Sorta good good for everyone. I'll add to that. We're still in the early days of this raid. The pay model actually turns ten years old pay model for the new york times. This quarter and i would argue. We're still making a market for paid digital news subscription. It wasn't that long ago that everybody said things like digital news wants to be free that you know we're we're still in the formative stages and we look you know with my guess is some of our our journalistic competitors might think news corps reported yesterday and they had a great year for subscriptions. My understanding is post had a great year for subscriptions and we sort of look at all of that as making mark. Can you talk a little bit of the mechanics of what you've about running subscription business. You talked to yesterday about you. Know you're you're you're doing a good job of getting people to sign up with cheap subscriptions graduating them to full price subscriptions. I think you just announced that you're going to have your first. Are you are raising prices for subscribers for the first time so mechanically. What have you learned about sort of when when to bring the paywall up when to ask people to pay Went to graduate them to a full price subscription. Yeah great. Great question. Twos for underlying principles. I would say like lessons that that can keep repeating number one. You have to keep investing in the content itself as given that it has to be good. Take that has given. It's gotta be great. You need a really big audience. Funnel of deeply engaged people. And i'm i'm very focused right now. On the fact that we like broke every record that i know of terms of audience engagement this year or something like wanted to americans to the times in peak covid in the first half of the year when into adult americans wall we were still selling on a subscription for us. Big part of the formula has been you need a wide amount of really high quality journalism accessible to a lot of people actually for much of the first half. I won't remember the dates but for much of the first half. We had everything about code on our site outside of the paywall and still managed to sell out of subscriptions. So you know i guess. That's a long winded way of saying friction isn't the only answer and you know use friction in a really thoughtful and deliberate way recognizing that it's going to take people. Time and energy to engage will say one other thing that That's been a big learning of late. And that is that if we can get you to make a direct relationship with us just like just give us your email address. Get to give us your email address. We got along window of time to get you to engage with something on the new york times. Maybe it's downloading the app or signing up for a newsletter or signing up for any number of of alerts but we've got a number of bites at the apple at getting you to engage. And i would say that is probably the case for any subscription
Kim Jones on the Making of Air Dior
"It's been a crazy. Eight months herself is being crazy as being busy. Yeah and i've appreciated time at home and being able to have time to myself. Reflect more of john when you were say a lot of time to research the excited about a very eventful few months but today we're here to talk about sneakers. what makes an amazing sneaker. And what makes an amazing sneaker launch air. Dior or shoe which we have right here. It's like the most sought after sneaker in the world right now. yeah. I've been scouring the internet to kind of see what people are saying and how much they cost and you know it's crazy how quickly they've accelerated price. I wanted to start with your own relationship with sneakers because it goes back a long time. This is not a trend. You just jumped on. I mean most people who know me know that i started out working at a company called gimme five whereas college but before that when a student also at school nyc for me was the absolute must have an odd save off and dish. Dishwasher governed by pair of sneakers and people have michael jordan with the heroes and just everyone was wearing sneakers. Me and my friends would chip into bypass to share them and share parents of have jordan. Fives that were on. Discount in place in brighton that we bought a we went and three as on them now. Forty five pounds and we chipped by them and then we take them in terms of obviously make sure no one stood on them and sick have never allowed to go out anywhere teaching them and it was just you. Nuts is the design. It was just like it was a cult thing. It became colton. You know we both got these which the first one of the first has jordan's in the white and gray which is the basis for the ed your and the ideal thing was really dickel t and i've had a contract with nike for quite few years. And then they taught me about being jordan. And as i really love to do with your because they've never done and luxury house with georgian collaborations. I would take italian at you know jordan with the dior factories and really make something special and exciting. And it's really you know it was solid. Where do you want jordan's that was really how it started as bit selfish so before we get into the actual kind of design of the shoe. Because i think there's a lot of thought that goes into that. Of course the jordan one for the uninitiated amongst us. I think sneaker has called it the aj one. Why is that such an important shoe. Silhouette i think is just such design. Classic infamy you does periods in history. Whether it's been shoes. Come out like this on the air. Max ninety five that just speak to people and they speak to a generation of people for me. I didn't have the original pair of these because they a bit too young for them and they really out of my price range and they weren't so easy to get the uk. And then as i started going to japan as i graduated i started collecting fares what i think the first bought seven bucks in a flea market and then to visit a friend where does student and that was kind of to shake shaking. You just they just become infectious shots at me. Now you just love to design it so joining a club. I guess so. When you're thinking about designing a shoe that has to balance effectively three different brands right. Young jordan has its own brand completely new operated separately with its own team. Then there's night key which obviously is like gave birth to the jordan. There's there's three iconic brands so when you're when you're when you're designing a shoe and you have to balance the dna. Three brees was really like we need to netflix. Because that's one of the criterias of deal is significant advance. We knew the letter had to be sourced. We knew we wanted to have the finishings. Made like bag would be made. So you have the edge painting. You have the way that things are hand finished in the sewing. The oblique here is made specific size just the jordan and it scaled per size of georgian. And you have again. You have on the tongue which is a new technique that we developed an inside the leather so units inside which they did have the normal jordan and inside. I have the numbers or these are the ones from the miami share. Whichever forty has them and really making them for people that would appreciate something and understand the croft now in consumption when you talked about fashion. I'm very aware of numbers and craft being important people. I think young people are learning by nets and they won't buy things last longer for me. Doing things like this was something being a limited number of things but it's creates excitement. There were only thirteen. Thousand pairs of shoes made but there's also a whole bunch of other skews in the collection which may be the as much. Yeah i mean. We've mentioned what we michael jordan's wore jay. But he was because he was the coolest guy and it was like he will seats all the time and we were looking at we made of his clothes and then we had to call them present it all to him which was kind of because he sees everything can approves everything jordan. What was that like. I mean he was super lovely. And i get in chicago. We went to do the don't it was like. I was really impressed that he was to be honest. That's the cage stream isn't it. I guess it was. He was just radiant. He's and you want to keep them the stuff so we can keep it and travis was there and he was reading into it so you know promise travis he'd be one of the people have it and it was just it was. It was an appreciation for each other. That was the thing that was nice about. What did you have to see to the powers that via d. or to get them. I mean they've never done nothing like that. I had to piatra use my ceo and we have extremely good relationship. And i was like. I really want to do this. What you think it nina. He's in his twenties and he was thought it was cool idea who grew up here as per say that was pretty easy to do in nyc. Nike was little bit but then they got into. It was his reading managing expectations of everybody in the right

So should we explain why we're? We're driving through sunset radio. There's a bunch of billboards here, right? That's what we're. Getting at. Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not.

Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on.

The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix.

We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel.

I heard it's great. I mean it's great so far but it is the first time that I feel like you know what I think I can handle this but otherwise I've been watching you know. Tv shows a Lake Net flicks sex education and HIGH FIDELITY ON. Hulu those kinds of things. That feel a little bit lighter but I think people are just watching.

"Responding to that by figuring out how to program differently how to structure themselves differently how to reach some of those people directly all that stuff is, is happening. And I've been sort of waiting for it to happen in predicting when it might happen and saying it's not going to happen for awhile. Now we're here. Okay. So this is the streaming services against the incumbents. Yes, and more broadly. Right. If just still, it's Facebook and Google net flicks. I mean, they're all competing for your time, and your eyeballs, they're all sort of playing in internet video to different degrees. So I don't write that much about Facebook video but Facebook itself. Right. It's still a competitor to all these things at Facebook video one day might be who's winning net flicks. The entire narrative is everyone is responding to Netflix slash Ken net flicks be stopped slash does. Netflix having to kill his. He'll slashes his Netflix. Finally going to have real competition from Disney if everyone is it positioned themselves, says the Netflix Keller are this is the response to net flix even if maybe that's not a hundred percent. True. That means Netflix is winning. Okay. And Disney is the most likely competitor. I mean Amazon seems to be done in a slightly different direction, yet, Amazon for a longtime seemed like the logical sort of Netflix competitor, now, Disney's the by far most obvious. Netflix, competitor, there's a side to that, where you can say, look, they're actually not a competitor there. Most people are going to have both services. That's true. But still Disney is one that is most sort of dramatically overhauled its strategy to sort of take on what Netflix has accomplished. Okay. And so give me give me what they have going for them. They've got a lot of like ten. Poll franchises and stuff. But what is the what's the challenge for them to be a real competitor to net flicks? The challenge for Disney's are starting at zero right.

"Of DVD's, but interest by introducing video on demand via the internet. Netflix grew as DVD sales from two thousand six to two thousand eleven. Think about this. This is a very brave thing to do. Here's a company that made all of its money in DVD rentals, sending them in the mail, having the foresight to say, you know what? Internet speeds for consumers are going up. Our costs are going down to stream video content. What if we move our company into the streaming service and away from the DVD, the physical hard copies? We think that's the way to go. Now I remember back then when they started making this move, and I didn't know what to think. And for a while, there was a tear where you could get both, and then they moved away from that words, either DVD or streaming. And I was in a conundrum because I really kinda was addicted to getting these things in the mail. But I thought, you know what? I'll I'm gonna try the on demand service only the online service only. And of course like everybody else. I never went back because it just it made way too much sense. Yeah. And I, it was incredibly because the two, the two businesses opponent from the fact that the seven content on not remotely alike the logistics around sending DVD's people demand is nothing like streaming a toll. No, an I remember everybody the ice by to when they announced they were going to do this was somewhat confused because it's it's, it's almost like you know, killing the golden goose. You make you money on DVD's and you say, we're not going to do that anymore, or we gonna move away from that, and we're going to move to some of these going to kill our business if it successful, and yet they pulled it off. And then of course, nowadays you look at Netflix and it's almost even like the they're streaming service second, but there are constant company I, yeah. Where removing TV studio. When you think of Netflix, you don't think I'm gonna go watch, you know, such and such movie Netflix, some people do that, but it's about the regional content on networks. That's what you get net flicks for. Yeah. And actually, I was surprised because I, we, we bought into net flicks only relatively recently. We, we've had an impromptu description for longtime. So we've been using Amazon.

"Streaming subscriptions tied together, but people who. Subscribed only to DVD's or only subscribe to the streaming service. They wouldn't have actually seen a price cut in this approach. However, the focus of this announcement was almost exclusively on the price jump for the people who had a joint account like the joint DVD and streaming services. And because of that, Netflix was getting a lot of bad press and customer complaints. So there was a new idea one that a lot of people inside Netflix did not like, but Reed Hastings was very gung ho on going forward with this idea. That idea was to split the two businesses apart and make the DVD side of net flicks its own company and calling it quick stir it would have its own internal corporate structure. It would have its own CEO. It would be free from the streaming business of Netflix, but that also meant. It, it would be a huge change to customers. It meant that the combined plan of DVD's and streaming would become more complicated. Each company would have to maintain its own cues and customer profiles. So if you wanted to have that that joint service of DVD's and streaming video, now you were going to have to have two accounts. You're gonna have a Netflix account and a quick stir account. You have to subscriptions to payments to different cues. If you were, let's say that you had a queue in your streaming service, and you had a queue in the DVD service. And it turns out one of the movies that's on your DVD list becomes available on streaming and you watch it and streaming, and then you're next DVD shows up and it happens to be the same movie. That would be a really frustrating experience, especially since it had originally both come from the same company. People were not happy. Netflix also was not very good at communicating why it was doing this in the first place. And the main reason. Season was to allow the DVD side to focus on delivering rentals with a deep library and do it officially in and with a prophet in mind. While the streaming side could dedicate more resources like time, energy and effort to building out its.

"Netflix ended up extricating itself out of this problem in two thousand fourteen, and that's when it was announced that it was going to pay Comcast for a direct connection from Netflix servers to Comcast's network. So they were no longer employing anyone else to become a content delivery network. They were essentially doing it themselves and paying Comcast for the privilege, but the bigger dispute. It reached something of resolution in two thousand fifteen. Just a short time before the FCC was to start hearing complaints under some new net neutrality rules rules which I should add have since been overturned by the most recent FCC leadership. So the mess keeps on going. Meanwhile, on the executive side over at Netflix Reed, Hastings was apparently becoming less approachable according to the book Netflix, which I have cited several times in these episodes. It was getting harder to change Hastings, mind about things. He would make up his mind on something and challenging. His ideas was becoming more and more difficult to do. Some of his top executives would leave around this time. They saw very little opportunity to grow at Netflix. They saw little indication that they would have a shot at leading the company themselves and figured that they pretty much achieved their goals that they set out to to do when they joined that flakes things like fighting off blockbuster or launching a digital video, you know service, those things had happened already. So rather than just sit around, they decide to leave and take on new challenges or even retire on November twenty second, two thousand ten. Netflix really showed off how it believed the streaming service was going to be. In the future. Because for the first time they would offer customers the option to subscribe to just the streaming part of net flicks is service without the requirement of having a DVD rental service on top of it because up to that point, it was an add on there was no just streaming option for the subscription..

"I should say because the the delivery was still in DVD format. So here's how it was going to work. In fact, here's how it did work. If you signed up for the service, then you could create a q. very similar to what you would do on Netflix of different movies you wanted to watch and based upon the level that you had subscribed to, you would get a number of DVD's from that queue sent to you. After you watched it, you can do one of two things. You could plop the the view DVD back into an envelope and mail it back to blockbuster, whereupon once it was processed, they would send you the next one on your list or you could actually take that DVD and return it to a blockbuster. Store, and if you return it to a blockbuster store that DVD would also act as if it were a free rental coupon, you could immediately rent any movie in that blockbuster store for free. And meanwhile, the blockbuster store would scan in your return, which would immediately indicate to the distribution center to send you the next movie on your queue. So Nali where you're getting a free rental that didn't have to be on your queue at all the next movie under cure. At least the next available movie on your accu- would then get sent to you. So this was a very attractive proposition. It was something that Netflix could not offer because they didn't have those brick and mortar stores, and blockbuster had that, you know, that was an established entrenched model for blockbuster. So this was an opportunity for blockbuster to really put the hurt on net flicks their service attracted more than two million customers in just a few. Short months, and it really posed another big threat to net flicks. Now, the problem for blockbuster was that the way they were pricing, this model was unsustainable. They could not do it indefinitely. They were losing money on every transaction, especially since these returned discs to the blockbuster stores.

"More servers in order to boost capacity, things were not going so hot over in the DVD storage, vault either. In fact, things were pretty chaotic. The laser printer they were using the printout addresses jammed the flurry of activity meant the DVD's soon got out of order and became much more difficult to track down specific discs. And every time the servers came back up, new orders would fly in. So the team was struggling to keep up by the end of the day that orders to send out more than five hundred disks to more than one hundred customers. And this was all done by hand and it was sometime around. Then they also realized, oh, shoot, the internet is always open. We can't close. It's not like from eight PM till six AM where we're shut down. So the sites still has to be active. It's still has to be up available even though we won't be completing anymore orders until the next day. That was a stark realization. They. Soon included a message during high capacity situations that read. Sorry, due to extreme opening week demand, the net flicks store may be slow helping or hindering things was that while Netflix was in development, the DVD player was a novelty right? That people very few people had them, but by the spring of nineteen ninety eight when Netflix was actually launching as a service, it was a different story. The price for DVD players had come down to about half of what they had been and DVD player. Sales were starting to outpace VCR sales. So on late nineteen Ninety-seven the potential customer base was small by spring of nineteen ninety eight that had changed. So it was kind of a right place right time scenario for Netflix movie studios were playing ball to as sales picked up studios began to release more of their libraries on DVD. Now they saw that there was a demand. And for this kind of home entertainment, and they saw the opportunity and they began to jump on that new titles and old became potential revenue generators and Netflix, which was protected by US president that had law that said, accompany can buy and then rent out movies that is totally. Fine by law. If you if you buy a product, you can rent that product out to other people. So Netflix was taking advantage by scooping up copies of as many different titles as it could building out its own library by August nineteen, ninety eight. Those initial five hundred titles were now closer to fifteen hundred and because VHS rental chains like Hollywood video and blockbuster were slow to adopt the DVD format. Netflix had a good running start on them as well. Those companies were so entrenched in the VHS world that the thought of switching lanes and moving to DVD's was really daunting it. It represented an enormous cost for them to be able to change formats like that. So Netflix because it had not been entrenched in another medium was at an advantage. So was not species beginning and we're just getting started. Now in our next episode will look. Look at how net flicks, whether the first year or two of his existence and how it started to come up against what would become its main rival for the first decade of Netflix says, existence as a company that being blockbuster, if you guys have suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff, whether it's a company, a technology, a person tech, whatever it may be, send me an Email.

Those the one that people, I guess objected to at least they, I don't know that there was anyone who is passionately advocating for the name, but there was no one who was in great opposition to it. And so that became the name of the company. There is no logo was in purple and white. It's easy. I forget that that was the case they the net flicks is branding is so so powerful. Now with the red and white scheme that it's easy to forget that originally was purple and white. It had an unspools reel of film as part of the logo design. The red and white color scheme would come much later. They brought on a guy named Corey bridges to work in customer development and bridges had previously worked for Netscape and help launch their internet browser bridges seem. Secretly reached out to influencers and Usenet groups because this was before stuff like YouTube and Instagram and other social media platforms. But he saw those folks in Usenet groups as being really passionate community members and by tapping into people who were really big users in Usenet groups that were focusing on film discussion and asking them if they would participate in a beta program that Netflix was going to hold. He got a lot of responses, especially when he said that they would be allowed to be the first people to write about this new service. Once it was raised lunch, the day would essentially have the scoop on everyone else and has promotional plan worked like gangbusters. They signed up eagerly to test out this service on April fourteenth nineteen ninety eight. The company was ready to go live. They had built up a library of DVD's and they attested the features with their beta testers. Reed Hastings who had provided the seed money had mainly stayed out of the actual development process while all of this creative work was going on. This was Mark Randolph's show for that initial few months setting up the company, but as did our arrive at the company and watch as they actually went online. So he was there on hand for launch day. In fact, the story goes that some of the other employees didn't even know who read Hastings was they had never even really chatted with him at this point. So while the team was working on Netflix, Hastings had actually gone back to pursue more graduate studies at Stanford. And here's one way that Netflix was a very different service when it first launched than it would become later on and why the story about Hastings and those late fees doesn't ring terribly true. Even before we heard about Mark Randolph's version of the story. When that flicks I went, live users didn't get to subscribe to rent films indefinitely and just.

This is like a longtime later. I think like at a certain point, the memberships were free. But I think it was like initially it was like, look ran to spend like hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy two hundred videos for people to rent. So we need that money upfront basically, but we'll give it back to you. You'll be able to go and rent is I remember for years like how it'd be able to go in there and be in rent.

Well, hold on. Let's talk radio rentals in general. We talked about Netflix kind of the origin of nanna. Maybe we could do another one on like Netflix original program. Because we didn't even get into. Any of the shows I'm trying to think of one original program, Grainger, things. Stranger cards are interested, new black, gaily gals all the marvel stuff. I'm talking original original mind. Hunter. Yeah. Lost in space. Luke cage. I said, marvel stuff. I just wanted to. They're supposed to have something like like seven or seven hundred new series this year, Tom, we're not talking about that this week. That's in our Netflix original programming to talk about quick.

Whip like that would've also lost her that job. This guy know about teaching John fryer. It'd be like, oh, great. He'll. Up in smoke correctly, but other problems. Drama, comedy, comedy, come on. I know Cheech they had blockbuster, like very few categories like drama, comedy and kids. Yeah. Classics and action and everything appropriate foreign Reed Hastings was just like. DVD's are done.

"And like the switch happened like quickly within months, like a like a switch like switch. The switch happened like swit-. Yeah. No is like all of a sudden everybody realize, oh, I can watch movies. I can watch streaming movies. I think twenty tens prior around Walli. I remember that twenty ten probably also around the time that. Like it's started getting integrated into some TV's, but the biggest thing was like twenty ten was around win the video game systems started supporting the streaming. So it was like, oh, all these people have systems. Interesting fact here. In twenty eleven like forty. Two percent of streams happened on computer that wasn't interested me. Twenty five percent of views happened on Nintendo. We thought we wasn't. Late to the game, you had to put in a disc into the we to make Netflix work early on because we had a we when we were living together and who will step back now is very confusing sentence. We had a, we what? What? What. You and I just didn't intendo entertain of you. Remember that I also call a house meeting when I got that streaming disc, Netflix just send us a disc that they never want back. And then we were very expensive box that we couldn't even watch the boondock saints that box. It's all about being this disc in waiting for that to load. And then watching it on the we hear, I do remember thinking it was weird when you're going to request that disk and then you're like putting a q. and it would take a while in my home recently wound up in Weird weird. like a killer's calling card or something mean was no. This is the one that we had like at the toes. Tim, I burn that disc years ago. Idea. Remember. Killed somebody or somebody's after me, hey, look, whatever you say, man. I remember thinking it was weird that that this came in like a regular Netflix container or envelope envelope, but they're gonna make new envelope. Never never have to send this back. Wow. World. What a world? Yeah. So I still definitely have a few Netflix DVD's that I reported as missing. And then like found later what they make you pay like twenty dollars for him or something. Right? No, usually they were like, no, no problem. Oh, missing in the mail? Yeah, I'd say no, I mailed. I gave them to the mailman I told him it was important to give them back to you. He didn't bring them back. Boy, I've had problems with him. Read read, you gotta believe me. I'm trying to do the right thing. I'm trying to get these TVs back. A lot of people wanna watch the boondock saints. I want them to one. I mainly Stewart's real real frigging can of worms with this guy. Another interesting fact that I read it was in twenty thirteen because I remember because I used to work for a video website and we ran into this problem. No, not pornography site, but a pornography related problem where we were unable. And so as Netflix, we later found out once we ran into problems to automatically share what people were watching on Facebook stinks and nobody wants to do of course. Well, this is like a little bit of a different time, but like Netflix wanted you to be able to be like, hey, I'm watching the boondock saints. I can post. Like we know and no does, so are we? But I don't want them to know that I'm watching Jade. Yeah, it's a real nut exactly. Look if somebody like Tim boondock saints who'll awesome next time I see him a high five situation. Yeah, Jade. I know what he's doing. Do you know why that was a legal, the sharing of, yeah, no, it was the the video Privacy Act of nineteen Eighty-eight because only Bono. No, maybe it was him.

"Countered I net flicks boxes like eighty bucks. It was like surprisingly affordable that box ever got updated to be able to play anything else. I think you could only do Netflix, and then everybody's like, well, will we be able to watch boondock saints? Well, not yet, but God willing one day it'll be. Jade. Can I borrow that box and put it in my room and watch Jade. Now you can't look if you unplug it is I'm gonna work anymore. Eight has to be plugged into this hardwired connection in our home every week, and they forty dollars late fees for Jade. Is hoping this would solve my problem. Say that's how the streaming started. Okay. So then so they had streaming and then streaming ramped up, but two thousand eleven. It wasn't like like he was knickknack right? The the, no. I look there. These God damn suburbanites that are just like. Like all the new movies I writ bucks. Oh, I signed up for Netflix streaming. Why can't I get this new movie?

"Net, flicks dot com. Yeah, movies delivered its old, redirect. Yes. So at one point they tried to make thing called quick Stor which was going to be at Titas and ten eleven? I think people were livid. Yes. So basically, this was Netflix. It always used to be. You got a DVD plan and then on top of that, you got the streaming. Now streaming started, what are we can say two thousand six, two thousand seven thousand seven. Documents. I was trying to look it up today. Recently they had they came out with a list of all the original streaming titles they had when they first lost. And like I remember the David Wayne movie, the ten was on there, and I was like, oh sweet. This is going to be a lot like independent releases and then like nothing else. And like nothing ever changed for like six months. And yeah, there were not new things on there and you could kinda watch it on your computer, but like he was still in the time. Whereas like you really need to tell me, you're going to stream movies, I can barely get this QuickTime movie. Not buffer every look. I'm still using the real player, my player, Microsoft silver light to get this work. And but then I remember we were roommates at the time and you're like there's a Netflix box for TV TV and art TV only I think you were like everybody. I've bought this net flicks Roku. That was the first Asian. The rookie right net flicks branded. Yeah, it had originally Netflix was going to make their own box and call the net flicks. So two things I, we were gonna make a Netflix spock's that like you would decide at night. What movie you wanted to see. Boondock saints and download it overnight and keep overnight. Yeah. Jesus Christ. Because it took so long. So it was like overnight. And then then you still have to commit to movie. Yeah. And then the next day we'll be ready for your girlfriend's like, I don't like this movie. I spent nine and a half hours downloading this watching the boondock saints. Yeah. Again. But then once YouTube took off, they were like, oh, there's an, you can stream movies instead of download them. So that's when they started their streaming thing, but they were originally gay, make Netflix box streaming box themselves, and then very wisely. They were like, like if we do this, like nobody else's going to like make a Netflix box because there to compete with us and nobody's going to want wanna do that because we could screw them over at any point. So they were the biggest investors integration. They were the biggest investors in Roku and Roku started. Like it wasn't. There wasn't like a subsidiary, but they were mostly owned by Netflix. Anna, what the deal is nowadays, business Steph, you wouldn't understand me and other guys. Steph we talk about if between talking about the mad magazine stuff. So they were going to do it that way, or they did do it that way. And that's how I don't know if you remember. But like, yeah, the Roku boxes, like the only way to watch Netflix on TV for like maybe six months and then out of nowhere. It was like, you can watch it on anything. I remember you were like roommate meeting and. Poor. We're like four of us living in one apartment. Yeah, I've bought this net flicks so we can watch these twelve streaming independent movies costs four hundred and fifty dollars. So everybody just leave one hundred twenty dollars..

You put on any anywhere for making out to to Penn forum. Allow, but the stipulation is movie or television program has to be streaming in the background. Yeah. I mean, it's basically just the old, the old standby. You know, I guess not all generations had this, but like for our generation, it would have just been like when we were in college or whatever, like, hey, come over and watch a boondock saints.
