Welcome to the late, late edition of The Three. Le Trois. El Tres.
Here are the three articles that caught my eye today!
A) as you know, I love analyzing how technology is impacting the media and entertainment field (in my opinion, it’s one of the first industries to be disrupted from technology. Every other industry like financial services etc analyzes what’s happening to the media and entertainment world and tries to adapt the lessons learned before technology takes over their industry).
Does the mean that the old media is dying? It depends to be honest with you. My litmus test? How many times do you hear the word Netflix at the office? At home? At the bus stop (I know that when I’m at the bus stop, one of the things my bus friends talk about is Netflix. We never talk about linear or cable TV. Unless it’s the NFL)?
If you need more statistics on how the old media world is doing, this article will explain how the media and entertainment world is adapting to technology (preferably you’re this article while you’re drinking your favorite coffee or tea. If my personal trainers are reading my post, I did not drink a venti frappuccino this morning. Therefore, I don’t owe you any burpees but I know you’ll add these to my exercise routine because I love, love, love, love, love burpees):
B) I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never heard or read about arenas being built to host robotics competitions. Either this is going to take off like e-sports or it’ll remain a niche event (unless someone figures out a way to blend the two together):
C) I could post an article on how 3D models are helping stream line drug design but to be honest with you, you’d probably fall asleep (I can see your eyes glazing over as I type this sentence). Instead, I’ll end with this article (I could keep tying to explain this article but the headline sums it up quiet nicely. On the positive side, at least your pet(s) won’t be bored while you’re at work. Unless they find a way to take over your home, condo or apartment (I probably typed too much here. Promise me you won’t show this to your pets. I don’t want to give them any ideas 🙂
Have a positive Monday!
