Thoughts On Tech: YouTube Launches Streaming Service

gsmarena_001

Taylor Swift recently made headlines by pulling her entire song catalogue from Spotify, the world’s largest music streaming platform. Although this may have helped her sell over 1 million albums in the first week of the release of 1989, Spotify’s CEO came out and said she could have made over $6 million this year on the platform.

As streaming continues its massive growth, and music sales continues to decline, more and more platforms are jumping in the game. YouTube has always been known as the top place for music discovery, it hasn’t been able to capitalize on it’s massive user base in a streaming environment… until now.

Yesterday they announced YouTube Music Key, a monthly subscription streaming service that will allow the platform to help artists monetize on their music. With over 1 billion monthly visitors, the audience is already there, but the music is not always at its highest quality and most of the time, the artist is making little to nothing from these video views. Now, YouTube is hoping to capture that momentum in the industry, and at $8 per month, the subscription is already cheaper than Spotify and Rdio.

Thoughts on Tech: Learning to Code in School with Code.org

Screen Shot 2014-11-06 at 10.34.21 AM

When I was growing up, we were taught that math, reading, science, and history were the most important subjects to learn in school, and that our eventual jobs would fall under one of these disciplines. Then we went to high school and college, and these fields were narrowed into some sort of science, business, humanities, social science, or engineering degree. One thing that was not stressed, or even mentioned, was that much of our world would soon be run by computer science, or specifically, web coding.

Code.org, and it’s founder Hadi Partovi, are going to change that. Code.org is a non-for-profit business that has set out to build computer science programs in schools across the world, while also looking expand computer science participation from women and students of color. Code.org’s initiative currently reaches over 1.5M students in over 170 countries. All of this takes a large amount of funding though, and even though they have been financially backed by internet moguls such as Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, they are continually looking to expand.

Hadi and his team launched a campaign on Indiegogo, the non-profit crowd-funding platform, to raise additional funds to continue to expand the “Hour of Code” program. This event aims to add an hour of coding every week in schools to build awareness and skills. Their fundraising goal is $5M by December to launch the class in over 10K schools. So far, they have raised over $2.8M, breaking the previous record for the most successful campaign on the site. We know that web coding and design is one of the fastest growing careers, and will continue to expand, so the success of the “Hour of Code” event and the Code.org business is almost guaranteed.

Donate to the campaign and help make history HERE!
