$1.65 billion is on the verge of paying off.

So Google is partnering up with who? Time, Disney, or rather not Time is Time still part of Warner? Or did AOL just leave, i'm going on youtube, in a second to see if its any different. Also for people that find ninjas to be the most intersting thing in the world or dentists, or fucking autotuning, all that shit and a bag of fake vomit, ok, sorry, i'm crossing the line, i apologize, let's just keep an even keel here, going to check it out,

one moment please as i check for monetization identification...

now i'm waiting for an advertisment

i looked for official channels, i'm getting adult swim uk and diznee germany

one more shot


not the biggest sports fan though appreciate it as much as anyone, can't get it cause i'm in Canada. The US scaled does not equal profit.

(sigh)scan to one minute and 38 seconds, laughs are free and (they have so much to learn about marketing these yogurt engineers, are you there sergey or are you on one of those scooters?)

something to watch

do these guys actually still work at the place?

Marshall Mcluhan appearing on Mad Men

Makes sense since he did advise them, also the phrase about >media (singular, as container for information)as the link attests was germinated in 1959, and since Joan does say the phrase in season one episode,five or six, all i know is the circa isn't 1964 when the book was published, some zap2it blog criticizes the show for being to on the nose with regard to period references, ironically.

All i know is I know Mcluhan did consult ad agencies, and I wouldn't be writing this if the most intersting thing didn't occur to me the alliterative aspects of the initials of both, MM and MM. So now, I will research a bit and find out specific firms he consulted, and maybe MW (Matthew Weiner) will do a WA (Woody Allen) and now, some of the most SCTV like acting we will ever know

figure it out ya tools, and don't forget >Frank Einstein

Rules for Uploading Copyright Material on Youtube

All the major content holders, this applies to you, unless hold on, Videoclix is working with Viacom, Viacom is having issues with Youtube, youtube has 100 of millions of viewers, this is what is/will happen.

VideoClix's software is in use at Viacom, Viacom IS suing Youtube, VideoClix is also potentially speaking with Youtube, so it will make sense for Viacom to offically re:unleash their content back onto Youtube, hypervideo enabled, with youtube's potential ability to see it, (if this post doesn't make sense to you, GOOD fuck.)

K the a4mntnd was my take on the unsubstantiated


1. Content has to be at least 2 years old and have no current promotion behind
2. Content owner gets 50 percent of sale
3. Vendor gets 25-35 percent of scale
4. Youtube and User get remainder and leftover is for UPS to subsidize the transport

there done, your all welcome

a Haiku of the future of retail online
I'd say despite the meetings Google may be having with In Video software app designers, I feel that its just going to favour Time Warner with the following ability. Useless crap, I don't think that Time Warner will utilize the TRUE FUCKING potential for Extremely Innovative Profitability anytime soon. What Google should do at this point is make Youtube's monetization business model open to the public like the Goldcorp Challange, I personally will sell my idea to all the copyright owners who have infringed content on youtube which is a fucking Rorschach result of content popularity on a global scale, fucking free fuck. I will do a Steve Jobs and make the case on GoogTube's behalf for the need to ALLOW PEOPLE TO UPLOAD COPYRIGHT MATERIAL, because it will make them money, in my next post I will detail the rules for profitable copyright material uploading. Where it stands now I think this, regarding whomever may be trying to make Youtube profitable, i believe that no matter what they offer, it will take a long time to make actually usable in a practical way. here's Linux and here's Goldcorp taken from MA Nystrom.

and when i say uploading copyright will make people money who own the copyright, when i say that, i don't mean like this, CONTUNT. Take what I've mentioned replace one verb from one industry and put it in the other....yea, you see it now, can you imagine that?

The New Futility or The New Utility? (part ii)

So like a lot of people, I thought of the idea that was basically, let’s face it, >Pop Up video, we all remember that show, granted it focused on silly things that may interest TMZ viewers, but sometimes it was used in a different context that really gives an indication of how >hypervideo also known as in video advertising and even sometimes referred to as video overlay, could become the next big thing.

The idea is essentially, what if you could know what you were seeing somehow? For instance, if you were watching a skateboarding video and wanted to buy or know, what the skater was wearing? Or if you are watching Fashion File on CBC and would like to know about what your seeing there, this idea as a technology was inevitable but supremely tedious to imagine how it could realistically be done. The companies that are doing it the best in my opinion are, Innovid and VideoClix, both work with Viacom at MTV. Most recently, Innovid, >created a tweetlike timeline enabled app that let viewers comment on America’s Best Dance Crew during a specific performance, allowing them to comment on timeline specifc moments as they were occurring.

Are we going to use the video centered overly tactile environment to shop? Straight up, are we? I don’t think so anytime soon. I believe the only way people will potentially do this bridge habit is if its existence surfaces on Youtube first. The idea of leaving Youtube to watch videos somewhere else, … exists: We go to Vimeo for arty videos, some people go to Blip for whatever it is they do, where else is there that people actually use? No where really, even if there are places, which I know there are, they more than likely don’t really matter cause they can’t compete with the resourcefulness of Youtube and its on demand nostalgia and curiosity conqueroring ubiquity.

The garbage that is on Youtube, redefines what garbage is: The Magazine Wall of Memory and All Human Residue (kinda like >Cooliris, which has gone down since its intial version i experienced later last year). Straight up and down, Youtube allows us to mine it for the value that it is. Hypervideo, clickable video, in video advertising, it has a place online, and that place is Youtube, the reason Youtube doesn’t have the same consistent quality of Vimeo is because it is scaled to everyone on earth. This is really good for everyone, now can a company potentially come up with the right GUI to leverage the audience and give us the equivalent of a VCD recorder ? Can a company seduce our eyes to get to our wallets and open up micro employment opportunities to all who have the time to bother? Since we are all crew under these electronic conditions, shouldn’t we choose who to work for?

This new utility has the potential to do some of these things, and unless we can evolve a Steven Jobs like negotiation with all the major content companies, nothing will happen and things will take way longer than they have to.

I will speak more on this topic in future posts.

ps: I would like Google to negotiate on my behalf with Paramount to get me some cash for having the intelligence and more importantly, the taste to drive traffic to Google Video with regard to Newsradio I at least deserve 5 bucks for every sale, know why, cause linking should be like the stock market, the more obscure, the more the revenue is pure, no promo, left in the midden heap, i'm shining it up and helping people by pointing to quality works.

The next post will regard how this technology will be recontextualized into our daily habits, think Wii remotes as mouse remotes while on the couch. Shopping will become like opening up a new tab and bookmarking...stuff we'll get to.

Google AdSense

As an experiment i'm implementing google adsense, the things i already talk about overlays in videos, which i've learned is also more accurately and somewhat charmingly anachronistically referred to as, HYPERVIDEO. To me, and probably to Robert X Cringley at InfoWorld, which is probably not the same organization that said Fair Use accounts for more than 4.5 trillion dollars in lost revenue in the US alone, I feel it is now time, so if i feel its NOW time, realistically this won't happen for ten years, just ask Alan Moore at smlxl about timelines, but engagement, metrics, all that shit, there is one more way to get to the core of it, evolve internet usage and stop people from attempting to not make twitter something more than a mood status update scaled for the world, but reclothing that which we already did by means of the medium in which we are receiving it.

i am not going to link in my blogs for a while, i am sick of that shit, if i want it, the blog should have enough info for me to copy and paste, i'll prbably find more relevant stuff that way ne way, (ne...HA!) the next links i'll be putting will be via VideoClix, and i'm going to use it in Youtube videos, and if i can't, i guess i'll just have to negotiate the ability for everyone to somehow....somehow, I like the rain, course I wouldn't want to live in Vancouver.

What we think we are thinking, that isn't new either, conceptually Ramones songs don't deviate, neither do Autechre's but sometimes you feel Autechre, others, Ramones

yours truly,

Larry Ellison

There is an article about The Ramones and copy writing at Copyblogger, thing is, while people love the Ramones, even those that love them admit the same thing, of all their songs, and their are many cause they kicked it for twenty two, THEY ALL SOUND THE SAME, except for like, "It's A Long Way Back to Germany"

Either way, great things, terrible things, most things are protected by public incredulity, hook up the last word with Mcluhan in a Google query and you'll see ...

Where Am Gettin' @

My thinking is this, as I learn about SEO, and how those that discuss 'engagement' are only in it for money, my aim is still true (Elvis Costello) and that aim is this,

the internet can offer micro employemtn for the world, this wouldn't be job supplanting but it would put some decent scratch into yr pockets, which might end up jingling in order to avoid, a mid life crisis, ifnuknowwhatimean?

Innovid and their amazing tech, is like the only company i find interesting, course, I'm no expert, and lastly This Week in Google 2, Gina, Jeff and Leo, this is required listening, PubSub and Html5 with the canvas term, this is where shit is going, my idea will eventually be thought up and done, if it hasn't already been thought of,

if any company (shared pitch with Innovid?) is interested in finding out what I'm blathering about with my untrademarked n2 idea, please contact me throught here.

In the meantime, this blog is about my observations and having an odd but hearty laugh....
That has ever used their melody of alert. Entire genre of hip hop, breakcore and the artist Steinski, specifically named in lawsuit. To continue the cause and avoid prosecution, none of the links contain any sounds of sirens, goof (d?) luck,

all of us here at AG
Facebook won't allow me to link to my blog, how wonderful. Either way, now its time to learn about SEO and reread some of Brian Clark's post on the subject

Afilliatosophical Bricollaging from Me You Them on Vimeo.

This is possible now. Substitute film for affiliate blogging, substitute affiliate blogging, for "grittin'", ask me what my fax number is so i can send you an nda and a link to a video that will illustrate what grittin/MT'n is...

i'm talking to: YouTube, Sony, Innovid, TicTacTi(?)

those who are doing other monetizations, i could be speaking to them
If fair use contributes more to the economy than copywritten material, why isn't it tested?
Click on the 2007 study link. Seriously, if Zvika Netter of Innovid (they made that tech for the player on MTV) would like to have an NDA signed through fax conversation with me, I bet we could getting this ball rolling as far as creating micro employment through fair use, of course, we need Steve Jobs to confirm the entire Beatles catalogue on iTunes, this way, the rest of the indumbstry would give it a shot, and overlay videos would be an additional aspect to monetizing video (starting with YouTube), but I have a little trick up my sleeve that will really start things going. However, while I have a patent pending as of this past August 5th, I'll need faxed NDA confirmations, to play the two mock ups, to start the jaws dropping. As incredulous as this all reads, the videos, if seen by the right people at this current right time, will see, ... this truly would be the next big thing that would transform the world and bring all this engagement blathering brooks of bullshit into the hands of the rest of the world, and make copyright owners more money than everyone else, so they can sleep in any number of their golden beds at the tips of precipices knowing, that their automated golden parachutes will never fail them, ... so as long as they open up a bit of the copyright conundrums.

The New Futility or The New Utility?

Today's biggest issue regarding the evolution of networked computerization seems to be how to monetize YouTube , (to be read without breathing) yes by now we've all seen or heard the wedding video and the organization they want their attention grabbing idea that generated revenue on a variety of platforms like itunes and amazon, to get some of the aforementioned revenue. (talk about corporate citizenry! and overall irony with regard to the chris brown and the wedding's action group, yet another missed opportunity) This NYT article reiterates this point, specifically second poster "China Nolan" sez:

How much was the couple that generated the twelve million hits compensated? If they did that sort thing on TV they would have gotten at least one to 5 per cent of the gross. Not just Sony, Chris Brown and YouTube should benefit. ALL contributors should benefit if the music industry is serious about compensating the artist. In this case the artists also were the couple in the wedding.

I mean, in a networked environment this is completely true, we all know it, so why is it such a fucking problem? I'm sure if the reasoning shifted toward compensating ALL involved in the creation or rather, let's face it, this wedding video is a perfect example of resuscitating dormant content, no one was playing "Forever" by the artist who made it, no one was talking about it, no one but these Minnesotans maybe, who are unwittingly creating the Crazy of today or is it Angel? Either way, the wedding video added revenue that would not have been there otherwise, and this happened because of YouTube and its millions and millions of unique visitors.

So why can't a Creative Commons of Revenue be created to outline the scenarios in which commerical compensation can be derived? Why is this such a murky issue to even broach these days? Why is it always have to be horseless carriage (ctrl f the term when you get their if your impatient) with regard to innovation, every single fucking time? Everything's always gotta be locked down, the control is in the companies who produce the content, and that control is defined by giving up the content to the public, who find the use for it, I more or less heard that on a moderately recent podcast discussing Google Wave on TwiT, at approximately 33 minutes and 2 seconds, this is uttered.

Now, this leads me to the title of this post, the new innovations in doing the monetization seem to be in the form, of this company, they have also done this at MTV. The technology they are incorporating is not like...the newest thing ever thought, on the surface its simply overlays on video, though very innovatively, not surprising given their name. Granted there are limitations, but their are also many possibilities. The overlay product placements in otherwise disposable content, such as more or less anything on this network will be what makes these shows more interesting in syndication, by inadvertent irony as a form of hieroglyphic commentary on a larger scale, while of course generating revenue and having aforementioned irony, more than likely unnoticed by fans. (blogger's note: when i typed in the shows name and went to the site for the link, unsurprisingly my point was verified by the exact design of the site, a coincidence that these days, happens at least twice every other day, prolly for everyone, ne wayz). Make no mistake though, a lot of times, on other types of content advertising overlays will be annoying, no matter how evolved they become, they will seem like the head/body swapping of early mash up culture, when so and so's head was put on so and so's body. In other words, like the colourization of black and white movies, it's a process that will work sometimes and not other times.

My final non conclusion about overlays and the needed evolution of advertising is simple, it needs to be engaging, Innovid is the leader so far...but even they will need to address the engagement issue as well, next post will address logistics of getting what you want when you want it, to your actual fucking address, and if you live in an apartment, don't forget to include your buzz code cause the drivers don't have phones supplied by the company.
