God damn. Dude who was already big. Headed up Caesars Interactive stuff and bought Playtika, Israeli startup, for $150M in 2011 when they had under a dozen employees. Playtika would be sold for $4.4B to consortium of Chinese companies in 2016-07. 29x increase in 5 years. When Caesars was bought and taken by private in late 00s I think, it was valued at around $31B. Playtika got pretty damn big. Ahead of Zynga and Mojang. Only behind King and Supercell. -- Apparently the initial sale also caused Israel to become big in [mobile] games. 200+ game startups in Israel now. Impressive. #acquisitions #modern_era_games #pattern_our_way_of_taking_making_money_is_fair_fine_ala_SV #mobile_games #video_games #beast #startups #freemium #modern_era #gambling #boss_peeps #pub
"TNT and TBS have undergone a programming makeovers during the past two years since Reilly took the helm. This summer marks an inflection point for TNT as it has a slate of four original dramas — “Animal Kingdom,” “Good Behavior,” “Claws” and “Will” — that represent a major tonal break from the network’s past. TBS has stocked up on quirky half-hours that are anything but traditional sitcoms, from the serial mystery “Search Party” to the edgy domestic comedy “The Detour” to the scorching political humor of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” Reilly said the average age of viewers for TNT’s original series is 14 years younger than the previous slate of originals. He cited “Animal Kingdom” as the only returning original cable drama this summer to see ratings growth." #data #modern_era #statistics #$pop_culture #$media #$tv #Time_Warner #pub
