Back in 1998 METAL International founder Ken Rutkowski and I, along with a few others, started a streaming media company, Plus Media. By mid 2000 we were done with it, as we were way, way too early as a content play. Now, almost 20 years later, Streaming is big, big, big business. The news surrounding Disney and Netflix, sent shock waves around the industry, and the markets…Self driving trucks are coming from Tesla…Facebook does it’s own thing with original video….Those stories and much, much more, are all in today’s COMUNICANO.
