Media 2.0

Scott K has a very nice post on a theme I've been going on about lately - Media 2.0 is not a subset of Web 2.0. I've talked about this quite a bit in the last few weeks.

Largely, this is because VCs (with a few notable exceptions) and media are not a great fit - they don't get media, they're a bit scared of investing in media, and they often treat it like tech. So, IMHO, the community of people who should be disrupting the media value chain aren't getting the right guidance and feedback.

Perhaps its best that VCs can't or won't play this game. And if they can't/won't play, then we can't/won't be tempted by all thier money and trapped by all thier strings.

And if production really has gotten simpler and cheaper, then we don't actually need thier money, so they can keep it and the strings.

Its kinda liberating actually.

Hey Niblettes,

Good point - unless you're a VC :)

I wonder if Schumpeter's gales are about to make things Schumacher small?

So, it's not just me... :)
