If you were ever wondering just how important data and analytics can be for growing your business (or, in the case of the movie and music industry – adapting it) look no further than this infographic from WhoIsHostingThis.
These particular industries had no choice but apply the adapt-or-die method, and it seems they are finally starting to do that with some success. Admittedly, I never thought I would be a Netflix subscriber, but once they started putting out original shows I couldn’t find elsewhere, I caved.
It also gives an insider insight into how they manage to get our data, and why companies like Facebook and Google are so eager to collect and sell it.
If you were curious, this infographic from YTD has some interesting stats on the history of recorded music.
The record player is only 84 years old! People actually paid $1000 for CD players back in the day! These random facts might help you win a music trivia contest in the future.
Also, I really, really want to try out those Muzic headphones.
The website Music Machinery performed this study on how location can affect music taste. The map above shows the interesting results (click to make it larger).
Someone should do this for Canada. Our provinces are so huge it’s hard to imagine any one artist that could define the taste of the entire population, except for maybe Alberta in the same way that it was no surprise George Strait took Texas (though I was rooting for Willie Nelson) and Bruce took New Jersey.
This infographic from Finances Online is great. Not exactly telling me anything I didn’t already know, but it’s cool to see the actual stats on it.
Women dominate online. We kind of rule at this whole communicating via the internet thing.
What? Women like communicating? SHOCKER!
But seriously, this guy rules. Just another verification that Iceland is one of the best places on the planet. One day I will get there!
How is Toronto stuck with Rob Ford – the butt of every joke for comedians around the world – when other cool cities get someone this amazing? If by some dreadful twist of events, Robby wins another term, I might have to move to Reykjavik. Amazing music, scenic city, cool mayor. What more could you ask for? Sadly he is leaving office in the spring, but I have a feeling his replacement will be just as awesome.
