Thursday afternoon, I was invited on the Mario Armstrong show on SIRIUS XM channel 128 to discuss the Legacy of Steve Jobs on the entertainment industry from a tech standpoint. I covered 3 areas, which lead off with Jobs’ impact on the music industry, which was ushering in the digital music era and creating a sustainable business model for digital products via the launch of the iTunes Music store. The shift from CD/DVD to a digital model was the biggest shift in the music industry to-date. As of today, the iTunes store has enjoyed over 16 billion in sales to this date.
I covered Steve’s mark on the film industry through Pixar and his undeniable footprint and influence on computer animation use in film.
Finally, I covered his personal impact on my career and business model. My brand motto is Go Digital or Go Home, which means to focus on digital alternatives to increase your productivity and day-to-day operations leveraging technology. Through the many examples of ingenuity from Mr. Jobs, the Go Digital philosophy is a way of life.
The audio playback will be available in a couple days, which I will make available here on the site.
