With a decidedly economic focus, Scott, Rym Howard and I chewed through an hour or so of podcasting scenery. Here are the topics:
–What is the nature of sociometry? How much does attractiveness play a role? How does this translate to the internet?
–Dependency on oil will stop when:
a) we get a new president
b) the price of gasoline gets high enough
c) inevitably over time
d) it doesn’t matter because an asteroid will hit the earth and kill us all.
–In a world where information wants to be free, why are lawyers so expensive?
–With cable tv, FM and satellite radio, IP TV, podcasts and god knows what else fragmenting media, what does this media fragmentation mean for content providers and for media companies themselves?
–What will the effect of the pull back in the credit markets be on the private equity world? Does it matter to consumers?
