Gillmor Gang: House of Bacon
The Gillmor Gang ? Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor ? pondered the debatable relationship between Netflix' House of Cards and the tech community. From HBO's Jeff Bewkes calling the Kevin Spacey series "pretty good" to Comcast buying the rest of NBC/Universal from GE, the economics of streaming TV took a big leap forward. Not so much email, which @scobleizer defended with filters, smart labels, and Sane Boxes. We heard about smart calendars and DM suckage and Apple spoilage, but no matter: it's all about finding more time to devote to binge viewing and meteor dodging. More bacon please.
