Le Trois. The Three. El Tres

Happy Tuesday!

As I type this, I can hear the crickets and frog noises outside my window (yes, the window is open). What an amazing time to be in tune with nature.

Here are the three articles that caught my eye!

Have a great evening!

Stay at home workout

Loose change

There’s a shortage of quarters in the US (due to the pandemic, you’ve been using contactless payments = not enough real money is being used = shortage). Article is behind a paywall but the headline says it all: link

  1. Breaking up the Hollywood distribution system (from the movie distributors to the Netflixes of the world)
  2. Allow the person who created the film to get paid years later on (right now, it’s hard to figure out how much to pay an actor etc years down the road. Because it’s an imperfect system: aka Excel spreadsheet) and
  3. Allowing the creator of the film etc to make more money off his/her project: eg: NFTs

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
