For Spotify’s long-term plan, more original content isn’t necessarily the answer, says @eldsjal. The premise of content as a “defensible moat” for services like Netflix is “just very, very faulty … [Netflix is] winning because they’re simply moving faster than everyone else.”
my latest newsletter: if artists = startups, songs can be “features,” incorporating fan feedback & updated regularly. yet streaming economics compels many artists to treat songs more like loss-leading “ads.” can this contradiction be resolved? https://t.co/ECRkyrDn8f (via @revue)
