Forecasts, Warnings, and Comments - 7

Over 18 years of writing these articles my goals were to report digital's impact on broadcast, to aid internet radio, and to help indie artists.

Comments were not based on guesswork. My words come from the trenches, after real-world experience or from research provided by credible companies.

A most important observation: The farther into digital the world gets the less radio executives listen. What follows are a few of the words placed before them to date.

The PageRank of a page A is given as follows: PR(A) = (1-d) + d (PR(T1)/C(T1) + ... + PR(Tn)/C(Tn))"

Mark Cuban knows how to get the most bang from an unproven buck. He showed that by accepting over $3 billion dollars from Yahoo! for a few years ago. A few days ago, he was asked if Google should buy YouTube. Cuban's response, "They'd be crazy."
