This Is What’s Happening To The Media Industry

“There’s only two ways I know of to make money: bundling and unbundling.”

If you work in media or entertainment (or if you’re interested in how changes in those industries impact what gets created for you), this Ben Thompson presentation at the recent Recode conference is a must-watch.

In a 34-minute talk, he breaks down the current state of the media industry and how it’s adapting (or not) to changes driven by new technology.

He concludes we’re in the midst of a great unbundling…and a simultaneous rebundling.
