Startup Idea #27:


From bubblegen in 2004 comes this insightful post that I think is still relevant today:

Death of the Sitcom
Tuesday, August 10, 2004

Bravo to film a new reality show about the making of a sitcom. What they should really do is massively distribute the search problem - air different pilots and leverage distributed prediction to more efficiently find the next great sitcom. If, that is, it exists.

I don't know whether there is such a service today but it will be a killer idea. A feedback mechanism for content providers, be they professional studios or creative, will help them tremendously in getting early reactions on their product. It also allows business intelligence to be gathered on the next potential hit.

After thinking through, I realise there are already distributed platforms. Think Youtube, Revver, MetaCafe and countless video sharing sites. The key, as I mentioned previously is to provide a coordination mechanism. We need information extraction technology here. If we can build such a technology, the next step is to have a predictive model based on these aggregated info to identify the next hit. Sort of like how Monitor110 gives user tradeable actions before the investment news hit mainstream.
