By the actual first birthday of this newsletter version of The Hot Button, I guess it will be THB #250 or so. But this is where the digit counter flips to a third number, so… huzzah. I’ve loved doing this. Some weeks are better than others. Sometimes, I find myself repeating ideas and I just want to smack myself. The themes of this newsletter have been the themes of the moment in this industry. The transition from linear television and cable to streaming is a huge one. It’s bigger than Netflix could ever even imagine for itself. It’s a $250 billion+ a year space and all I really want is an expansive conversation about it all. But most of my colleagues in media just want to whip the same heavy cream way past being whipped cream into common butter.
