The Great Web-Reality Divide

A couple years ago Tim O’Reilly invited a Web 2.0 expo audience to "stop throwing sheep" and start doing something worthwhile. More recently, a post with the title America Lacks Meaningful Innovation went so far as to question the ability and willingness of American companies (particularly web companies) to be innovative.

Nearly three years on and today we’re throwing birds instead of sheep. Damn angry ones for that matter. Nevertheless, the point could be made that we’re still throwing animals instead of doing something supposedly worthwhile (as a typical web startup isn’t exactly revolutionizing health care, the energy industry, the environment, or other highly important areas for the future of civilization).

It could be argued however that entertainment is an important part of life. Granted entertainment doesn’t do anything as necessary and urgent as curing cancer, but it isn’t as though the expectation that every entrepreneur should focus on such a noble and almost unattainable problem is there either. Furthermore, innovation can - and does - happen even in places where you don’t expect it.

Shopify’s Build-A-Business Contest

Last year’s contest was responsible for helping create almost 1,400 businesses which accounted for 66,503 total orders and over $3.5 million in revenue. The winner of last year’s contest was San Francisco’s DODOcase - a company that makes stylish iPad cases using traditional book-binding techniques. The founders are now running a multi-million dollar company thanks to help from Shopify.

Manor Economics : Digital Peasants

Image source

The Huffington Post sale has caused some "digital peasants" to become restless:

The same writers who were happy to contribute for free before the sale are now accusing the publication of turning them into "modern-day slaves on Arianna Huffington’s plantation." The suit claims that about 9,000 people wrote for the Huffington Post on an unpaid basis, and it argues that their writings helped contribute about a third of the sale value of the site. These bloggers weren’t paid a single penny in the sale—the money went mostly to Huffington and a few investors.

Introducing the Paying Pirate

Image source

For the past decade or so, we’ve been cultivating a new completely new generation of consumers.  Consumers who are used to having everything at their disposal.  A generation who saw the maturation of the .mp3 and who waited 20 minutes to download a 4 minute song on Napster.  We’ve bred a generation who watches millions of hours of free video on YouTube and utilize platforms like Skype to make voice (and video) calls to family across the country at no charge.  Essentially, it’s a generation who feels entitled to most everything and expects to pay nothing for it.
