  • 11. So what is Content, in the Future? • Professionally produced and traditionally / legally owned • Created by the Users and shared- alike-commons-public-free-etc • Meta-Content: the Users’ data and click-streams layered around other (professional) content • Pro Content ‘appropriated’ by Users • The Users themselves
  • 12. Twitter: the Power of the Link Economy • The Real-Time Web is here • New: Following Logic (from Impressions to Followers) • Filtered & Curated by Pros and Peers • The shared ‘National’ Experience is back! • Fragmentation and Aggregation

  • 21. Example: great content and great experience
  • 22. A lot of Content Producers will expand into becoming Context Providers, Curators, Aggregators, Packagers... Curation: Exposing and Seeding, Testing, Rating, Tagging, Contextualizing, Remixing, (Re-)Framing, Packaging...

  • 30. Freemium and New Generatives: Pandora Convenience Premium Experience Personalization ‘Paying for Privacy’ Packaging Convenience
  • 31. There is great opportunity in this Definitely not in this:
  • 32. My final 5 cents... •There is huge opportunity in the creation of new models in the new content economy •The key new generatives will be around the content, not just within the content •Focus on adding value, not extracting it •Focus on the audience, first, and only then on the revenues •There is no recipe, and there probably won’t be one - the best way forward to is to constantly invent!
