“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
For quite awhile it looked like Netflix and Amazon Prime would be the video streaming winners. Two is company we say, but any more than that is a crowd. Well, we now have a crowd in the cloud. This chart shows what is happening with the many streaming entrants into the space.
Netflix and Amazon Prime are the perfect example of Economics 101: margin invites competition. How could other content owners not want to go direct to the consumer when they saw both Netflix and Amazon Prime raking in the audience and the dough? It’s great to be out front, but it is only hubris to think that someone else or many aren’t far behind.
Crowds can also cause conformity. We see it all too often that few become leaders and the rest fall into line behind them. We live in a crowded world and we must choose daily to conform or to think and act differently. That choice will come to each of us today and we need to ask ourselves now, who we will be when it gets crowded?
