How I Blog and How They Blog

I once wrote about why I have this blog. I don’t expect you to go back and read it so here’s the Cliff Notes. Blogging is a great way for me to stay sharp in business (digital media, sports biz, start-up world), share some of my thoughts with my friends and colleagues, and I enjoy [...]

Digital Start-Up Pro Forma Financial Model

During my senior year of college, I created a college basketball website called Littyhoops.com. This was back in the dark ages before blogs were popular so it took a considerable amount of effort to get the website up and running and then maintain it. I learned a ton about the web from the experience. One [...]

Ads Of The Future

I have issues with television commercials. Most notable is that they all pretty much suck. Sure, every now and then there’s a commercial that gives me a chuckle the first time I view it. Outside of the movie “The Sandlot” though, there are very few things I want to watch repeatedly, over and over again [...]

Littyhoops is all (Sports) Business

I’m spending more time thinking and writing about the intersection of sports, digital media and business. It seems like a no-brainer as these are probably my three favorite things to think about in this world (who knows what I’m up to in my flash-purgatory). I do realize that all you Littyhoopsters are not necessarily as [...]

Digital Madness: Future of MMOD In Doubt

Earlier this week I blogged that a new March Madness broadcasting rights deal for the NCAA could spell the end to March Madness on Demand – one of the most successful live streaming video programs to ever hit the web. Yesterday, the NCAA announced a 14-year broadcasting rights agreement for $10.8 billion with CBS and [...]

March Madness On Demand Or On De Fritz?

I’ve been paying close attention to the television negotiations for the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. You may have heard that the NCAA is playing around with the idea of expanding March Madness to 96 teams. You may have also asked yourself why mess with the perfection that is the current tournament. Many, including myself, think [...]

Littyhoops Podcasts

Lately, I’ve had an itch to start a podcast. The idea would be to record conversations with interesting people about interesting things and post them on this blog. I’m a sucker for a good conversation and I wish I would have more of them. Perhaps my motto of “small talk is for midgets” hinders the [...]

The Local Digital Marketing Conundrum/Opportunity

One of the most interesting business opportunities on the L-Hoops radar is the ability for small businesses to leverage digital to locally market to their customers. Put more plainly, how can the pizza place, neighborhood bar, barber shop, arcade, bowling alley or Japanese massage parlor use the web as a marketing tool to drive new [...]

Prime Time For TV Biz To Step Up

A few of my recent video viewing experiences combined with a conversation with my old Official College Sports Network buddy Dimberg has me thinking about the future of television as we know it. I wrote a post in June of 2008 called “The Internet Will Be Televised“. In the post I shared how intrigued I [...]
