Sunday morning with @alaindebotton. Never imagined I’d be singing Robbie Williams?!
"You bewitched me and I have never recovered" @katelisky you’ll love this love letter I found! So beautiful.
Preston Beckman, Fox’s longtime scheduling chief who is now a strategic adviser to the network. He’s one of many senior TV executives who remain dubious—if not disdainful—of Twitter.
Now, activity on Twitter will influence Nielsen’s TV ratings. Here, an inside look at Twitter’s TV-powered, profitable future.
This is the wrong mindset. It’s not about creating ratings. It’s about surfacing buzz. They now have a way to track buzz that doesn’t involve simply relying on a random sample of people, a way to track a passionate cult and focus energies on that cult. Beckman–who had cancelled at least one Joss Whedon-created show in his day—should know this better than anyone.
"As architects we have a responsibility to society" - Richard Rogers
Very inspired by this chat with Richard Rogers “I’ve enjoyed myself much more in the last third of my life than the first third.”
Incredible to think that many continue to enjoy such success and creativity well into what would be considered by most as their retirement!
