Yahoo is the New...

A semi-speculative piece on Yahoo's coming entry into the video market.

I think plays like Brightcove are gonna take this market, because incumbents are likely to fall into competence traps - the capabilities that sustained advantage in Web 1.0 (dumb aggregation, easily gamed contextual matching, community building without peer production, scope/demand-side network FX to increase stickiness) don't work well for micromedia, which will be fundamentally about speed and recominbation - getting more people to peer produce faster. These depend on new mechanisms, like supply-side network FX...more to come on that later.
