Meanwhile, WWE is going the other direction.David Lynch on iPhone movie-watching, Kevin Spacey and Johnny Knoxville on The Daily Show.The studios used to own the movie theaters.Netflix’s first "original" series was Lilyhammer, but unlike House of Cards, they didn’t greenlight or produce (and therefore own) it.Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (trailer) is a much better movie than you may assume. One nutjob on the panel thinks it’s one of the best American movies in years.Enlisted makes a surprising ratings leap week-over-week thanks to DVR.Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is one of our favorite TV shows not on TV.Farmed and Dangerous is propaganda designed to be entertaining. The Guardian looks at their decision to go in the direction of ecosystem marketing. Would Super Size Me have worked with a company logo slapped on it (or was that the question Spurlock tried to answer with POM Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold)?Amazon devoured the UK’s Lovefilm whole last week and announced a new season of original series Alpha House, even though John Goodman has no idea how to tell people to go watch it, but no one knows how many people actually watched the first one. Gary Trudeau is taking a hiatus from Doonesbury to focus on this.Transparent sounds really good.

Amy Hoy is known for her unfiltered, straight-shooting opinions on building product businesses. Her and her husband Thomas Fuchs have built Freckle, an awesome time-tracking web app – and have become well known in the bootstrapping, design, and Ruby on Rails communities. Amy is also a passionate teacher: her and Alex Hillman run the excellent 30×500 bootcamp whose students include the likes of Brennan Dunn, Chris Hartjes, and Jaana Kulmala.
Our topic was: finding an audience, discovering needs, and building products people want.
“The core problem with so many businesses is that they’re based on what the business owner wants.”
“They’re fantasizing about being the hero: “I’m going to ride in on my white ‘software’ horse, and save these poor people.”
“As much as you can, you want to sell to people who will use your product. People who buy your product and don’t use it will never buy from you again.”
“Target people already in motion.”
“Selling to wannabes has the least amount of upside; people who already have a business are more likely to spend money.”
“I would rather have no money, than know that the vast majority of people that gave me the money aren’t achieving what they wanted to. If that’s true, I don’t want to be in that business.”
“Being in business forces you to become a better human being.”

Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He’ll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.
