I was asked to give a talk at the weekly meeting of the Long Beach Rotary Club. I was invited by Philip Smith, who is pals with my pal Suzanne Stefanac. I have never been to a meeting of any Rotary Club, much less one in the grand ballroom of the Queen Mary, which is, of course docked on the water across from downtown Long Beach.
I peered into my crystal ball again to delivery a lightning round on the topic of the future of TV, framing it in terms of ten questions to ask if you want a good answer to that preposterous question. I've done a version of these slides before, but there is new material if you would like to take a look. I left the notes off the slideshare upload, only because I ad-libbed like wild. It was fun. Based upon the Rotary Club in Long Beach, I think the premise of "Bowling Alone" may be a bit off. These people do bowl, and they do a lot of other stuff to help their community.
And a good number of them were cord-cutters, I learned. Rotary International Cord Cutters.
