OTA tv has changed so much in the past 20 years. Like I sort of generally stopped watching TV back in the late 90s and now that I'm old I thought "ok well maybe i can watch things on a TV now" and like all the major networks are paid programming all day weekdays & most of sunday. Once upon a time that poo poo was reservered for the 2am->5am slot now it's just "if it's not primetime it's ads," its nuts.

young people found a way to avoid commercials so now they can only target the olds who don’t know how. it’s why Fox News and other major tv news networks can make so much money probably. they have a captive 24/7 audience who just absorb commercials

i understand the mechanism i'm just saying that looking at it now after not really watching it for 20 years was a real shock

my guess is that he was talking about services like Hulu though and the ad space there is just ... like it's completely loving worthless. When you see an ad for a company on Hulu, chances are its because an ad agency somewhere hosed up the ads they ran somewhere desireable and to make up for the fucky-wucky they're running a billion of the ads on Hulu, because Hulu has basically infinite ad inventory (because it's all worthless and no one wants it)

the solution to twitters problem is to tell all advertisers to gently caress off and make their living selling bonus tweet features. $1 to add a 10 second background midi for this tweet. $1 to add a leopard print background to that tweet. TF2 Hat Economy for Twitter. Even introduce SA-style custom titles and purchased immunity from custom titles.

twitter will never do that because no one in any of the larger SV companies will ever admit to the board or to themselves that they will not eventually own the entire earth and will never settle for a smaller goal.

airbnb is fine and should exist and if cities have issues with it, as they should, they should make laws about it. Airbnb-like behavior will exist whether it's formalized into a single website or just a mailing list or whatever.
