Window Wars

We all have a front row seat at the bar-room brawl that is the media business in 2011. In one corner, the barons of Old Media – the Ruperts, Sumners, the feisty Jeff Bewkes of Time Warner, and the (for now) low-profile but deadly Brian Roberts of Comcast. In the other corner: Netflix’s Founder/CEO Reed Hastings, Larry and Sergey from Google, patriarch Steve Jobs, and the other new gen entrepreneurs who are not afraid of where the business is going, including (in a fascinating case of the puppy taking a bite out of its master(s)) Jason Kilar at Hulu.

Like in poker it's best to know when to hold-em and when to fold-em. Don't make your creative children your real children because the time will likely come that you really should move on. Time, energy and money can be thrown out the window on unsellable properties, just because like your kids, you love them.....
