Top Takeaways of the Week
by Matthew Ball, Jonathan Glick, Mario Gabriele, Blake Robbins & Mathilde Collin
- On the next frontier of storytelling universes: Survival of the fittest-esque like scenarios will play out where the leading storytelling universes will crowd out less-popular, less-immersive, and less expansive franchises. It will be a fight for all franchises across all mediums. The switching costs will be very high for fans.
- “Effort, attention, money, and ownership can all be distributed within an audience. For the audience, distribution creates opportunities to learn, gain status, earn money, and accumulate equity. For creators, it deepens intimacy with an audience, aligns interests, and solves scale.” — Mario Gabriele
- “In the future, similar to automotive companies, software companies will be made up of hundreds, if not thousands, of suppliers. Every company should be asking: Why are we building this instead of using suppliers? Which aspects of our business need to be built in-house?” — Blake Robbins
- Stripe’s CEO, Patrick Collison gave Mathilde advice: “He told me that before hiring someone, consider whether you’d like to have 10 times as many people like them in your company. Because they will hire people in their mold, that’s the bar everyone needs to clear.” — Mathilde Collin
