  • What excites us for 2011... THE MENUPresented by The Media Kitchen February 2011
  • THE YEAR AHEAD - 2011The digital evolution is continuing and we’re now 365 daysinto the data decade. The rapid pace of innovation is not onlybeing funded at record numbers by Venture Capitalists, but it’snow being adopted fundamentally and foundationally byMadison Avenue, or shall we say, Varick Street.
  • INTRODUCING THE MENUIn 2010, we met with over 300+ different digital media companies offering TheMedia Kitchen different ways to communicate our clients brands within thedigital ecosystem. Many of the pitches sounded similar to one another, butsome were uniquely differentiated, and all of them inspired us. We decided tooutline the year ahead in document form and thus, the inaugural edition of TheMenu was born.The Menu, by The Media Kitchen, is a collection of big ideas by various differentcompanies that play to a handful major opportunities that we love for 2011:Content Creation, Distribution & Personalization. We alsotouch upon Platforms which are instrumental to the content business.
  • THE 2011 MENUA hand selected landscape comprised of Content, Personalization, Distribution, and Platforms Content Distribution Platforms Personalization
  • CONTENT Creating content has become relatively easy and the cost has gone dramatically down. If you have purchased a Mac in recent years, or own a Flip camera, you can produce your own videos. But just because you can produce your own content doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily good. For every 60 seconds that go by, 24 hours of content is uploaded to YouTube. While we can’t imagine all of that content is great; below are some web content pioneers that are having some early success with content that we enjoy and is “client” safe.New York based Next New Networks has been creating Santa Monica based ThisWeekIn, Inc., has coinedoriginal content for the web since 2006 and has the two most themselves a web television network. Not only do theywatched videos on YouTube of 2010: Bed Intruder Song and a produce their own content, they market it as well, as they’veparody of Ke$ha - Trying 2 Hard.

Whether teaming up with NNN for product has certainly led to the success of ThisWeekIn programming asintegrations into their current roster of shows or having them he attracts many other web-celebs to each show.

  • PERSONALIZATION With 1.97 billion Internet users worldwide (InternetWorldStats.com, Dec 2010), including 500 million people on Facebook and 24 million people on Twitter (Pew Internet Study, Nov 2010), lots of content is being created digitally each second. Many call this next decade we are in, “the data decade,” and with that, we’ll be able to mine lots of data to personalize experiences for people online. While many companies are entering the personalization space, three companies standout to us.Palo Alto based Quora is specializing Vancouver based Summify has New York based Knowabout.it is ain allowing people to subscribe to created a service that delivers a custom search and discovery enginetopics, specific answers, or people.

  • PLATFORMS Content needs to live somewhere. Historically, digital content lived solely on our desktop computers but now we’re increasingly accessing it through different ways such as mobile devices, media centers, and alternative “cable television” platforms. This is certainly a trend and we’re watching it closely as it alters how we engage with consumers.New York and Israel based Boxee has created anindependent software and hardware solution for consumption Mountain View, CA based Google, the now-makers of theof content ranging from Pandora to Netflix and YouTube to Android mobile operating system (acquired in 2005) isMLB.

  • CONCLUSIONWe highlighted eleven companies in this documented which comprise less than1% of the entire ecosystem. While there are many interesting companies in themarketplace, we feel these businesses are very exciting. Note: We evaluatedthese businesses from a marketing perspective, not a financial perspective, soknowledge about their financial statements and such are not part of thisdocument.Full personalization will not happen until the entire media ecosystem harnessesthe robust data assets and is allowed to do so by the government. We believethat as long as no personally identifiable information is used or is madeavailable for 3rd party companies without user consent, our contentexperiences will be much better than they are today.
