2020.10.08 Last Week in Digital Media

Hello

Here’s your Last Week in Digital Media and all of the news you may have missed:

GENERAL

ONLINE VIDEO

REGULATORY

  • the long-awaited House Judiciary Antitrust Sub Committee released its report on the digital economy. The full antitrust report (PDF link) is 450+ pages, and I’m still working my way through it; suffice to say it pp11 sets the tone “the digital economy has become highly concentrated and prone to monopolization,” and by pp20 it’s already getting into recommendations on “structural separations and prohibitions of certain dominant platforms from operating in adjacent lines of business.” There are several weeks worth of newsletters in just unpacking everything in the document. So instead, I recommend reading the analysis from various media outlets such as CNN, Protocol, theVerge, Business Insider, and CNBC.

PRIVACY, TRUST, and SAFETY

Thanks for reading, and have a great week.

PS. It takes most of the weekend to compile and write his newsletter. I’m planning (or at least hoping) to skip next week’s newsletter and take a short break instead. Thanks for your support and patience while I recharge.
