Riot On! – What happens to a bunch of nobodies in a startup…

Filed under: Joost — stephane @ 2:54 am

Riot On! is a nice video from Hakalax which is worth watching for anyone that has been in at least a startup and/or part of the dot-com craze:

The documentary Riot On! (2004) shows what happens to a bunch of nobodies from Finland who believe they will become billionaires by creating a company with 20 million dollars invested in them by corporate giants like Nokia, News Corporation and the Bush & Bin Laden families driven Carlyle.

Real movies available on Joost

Filed under: Business,General,Joost — stephane @ 10:43 pm

It has been a while since I did not post anything barely useful for the rest of the humanity (mm..) , but …for those who are following the online video ecosystem (and thus what’s happening at Joost somehow), they should be pretty happy to note that a range of movies (real movies) from Paramount Pictures are now available.

Movies are limited for now to Paramount France (in French), Paramount Germany (in German), Paramount Spain (in Spanish) and Paramount UK and Paramount US (in english of course). They do have some movies in common but some are pretty exclusive to the country mentioned.

In France you can find movies such as: Presidio (Sean Connery, Meg Ryan), Liaison Fatale (Michael Douglas, Glenn Close), Zoolander (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson), L’enfant sacré du Tibet (Eddie Murphy), Simetierre (from a Stephen King novel), 100 dollars pour un shérif (John Wayne), …

In the UK: Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Audrey Hepburn), Hunt for Red October (Sean Connery, from Tom Clancy’s novel), Patriot Games (Harrison Ford, from Tom Clancy’s novel), Fatal Attraction (Michael Douglas,Glenn Close), Escape from Alcatraz (Clint Eastwood), Intersection (Richard Gere, Sharon Stone), Congo (Dylan Walsh of Nip-Tuck fame), …

I’m not aware of such movies available legally in any other video online system, so it’s really nice to have it and I look forward to have the collection growing up. I’ll follow with interest what the usage pattern will be on those.

I understand the frustration of users facing georights issues and not being able to watch it in their own but sadly it is the consequences of something that happen before companies started to think more in a global way. Most of the times production companies have negotiated rights long ago and were sold exclusively to some distribution companies in some specific markets. Typically, sometimes the production companies don’t have the rights to do anything with their own content in those markets and when the business is evolving they find themselves in an incredibly annoying position. This is clearly something that is evolving but the backlog is of course there and is difficult to clear.

Stay tuned for some other form of content coming up real soon.

Delayed flight to New York

Filed under: Joost — stephane @ 7:09 pm

Here am I writing this in Schiphol (Amsterdam airport) while waiting for my flight to New York. And I unfortunately could get only a middle-seat (argh !) even after enquiring to the check-in counter.

On top of that my flight has been delayed for 2 hours.

And on top of that my return flight is a 747 instead of the 777 I was targeting. I explicitely picked this return flight as the electronic timetable was telling me that KLM was switching aircraft type from April 14 (and I came back 2 weeks ago in the 747, believe me you really want to avoid that one !!). In the end, they did not switch at all..damned

I’m scheduled to stay in New York for a week.
