The Comunicano Communique

 
 

The Comunicano Daily is no more. We've changed the name to the Communique.

The name has been changed for a few reasons. First, doing this everyday, especially when I've been globally nomadic the past seven months has been challenging. But also I wanted to mix up the content and bring to you more timely and insightful articles vs. only the news of the day. Lastly, the name is more in line with the business we're in. Communication and the delivery of it.

So as with any "experiment" the content mix will always change, but the premise will never as each time the Communique comes out, there's likely something every day you'll want to read.

More and more I find really well written and articulate content in MEDIUM. It's really a thinking persons' content trove. Today, this 13 minute read on The Mobile Growth Stackreally got me thinking about the changing landscape of communications.

Capital Is No Longer Scarce

Capital is no longer scarce. This is an assertion I made a while back in my post " Land, Capital, Attention: This Time it Is the Same. " Today I want to elaborate on that a bit. Estimates put global investible capital at north of $100 trillion.

FanDuel and DraftKings are in trouble. This in my view is only the tip of the iceberg. What was once really fantasy sports is now fantasy gambling, and sports betting has never been really allowed in the USA on wide scale basis, as it has always been a staple of the underground economy.

Judge orders FanDuel and DraftKings to halt all business in New York

Online fantasy sports betting sites FanDuel and DraftKings will need to temporarily shut down operations in New York, as a judge today granted an injunction against both companies. State Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez sided with New York's attorney general, finding that the underlying model that's helped put these businesses atop a multibillion-dollar industry likely amounts to illegal sports wagering and gambling under state law.

FaceBook is taking aim at LinkedIn. Make no mistake about it. With Apple also going after the Enterprise, my view is the mobile enterprise will be where the money can be made, so this means have your social selling strategy aligned with your product and marketing efforts from the start with Facebook.
