Yesterday, Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment, wrote an article for The Huffington Post discussing how piracy has effected content business’ (music, movies, books, newspapers, etc).
While this is an overly exhausted debate, I feel the need to share this article with you guys.
He starts of with a statement that made me cringe:
… I was on a panel the other day which opened with a question about the impact of the Internet on the entertainment business, and I responded, “I’m a guy who sees nothing good having come from the Internet. Period.”
I almost closed the browser when I read that, but I guess he was just trying to spark a flame.
It’s been a minute since I’ve updated my blog, but that doesn’t mean I forgot about you guys.
My workload has been crazier than usual lately, but it should be calmed down again after this week…
Anyhow, I just wanted to give you guys a quick update, since many thought I was M.I.A and a few started putting my pic on milk cartons. I’m still here, just busy – but things are calming down again, so I’ll post more often.
Also, one more thing:

My bwoys over at Tha Bizness, put together another “Behind The Beat” video; this time of Young Money‘s hot single, “Every Girl”.
Show people that you’re a REAL person who respects them & not just an opportunist hounding for what they can do for you. They’ll appreciate it and it will open up more doors for you.
3 people failed to show me that this week. Oh well – 4 others proved themselves & got the opportunity.
In my last post, I said I’d be gone for a week, and yet – I haven’t posted in 2 weeks.
I didn’t forget; just got sick when I got back & been playing catch up on a ton of work.
Atlanta was great (as always). Got a lot done and met up with a lot of great folks.
I didn’t end up getting any pics or video (even though I brought my Flip Mino HD with me EVERYWHERE I went). I just can’t get in the habit of stopping what I’m doing to capture it. It’s like documenting life as opposed to living life.
I guess I have to get used to doing that – for the blog’s sake.
Anyhow, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
