So Breakfast Network picked up my comment from in this blog. I am glad they appreciate it. I have also been selling their site to others. Happy to promote them.
Ah Bryan Ti again. Most times I don't agree with him but everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. Looks like this smart chap has more time than most of us. I would like to tell him to be more realistic. Our lives often do not depend on most of the news we receive so there is no need to get to the bottom of things. Where is the time for that? We would drill deep when we need to but daily we each have to look after our plot in the farm because our living depend on it. Either Bryan Ti is a multitasking genius that work and think super quickly or more likely he didn't need to make a living. We are not as sic unlucky as him.
Breakfast Network shouldn't waste time with comments like his. There are too few Bryan Tis to matter. ST is a talent business and when they cannot scoop up all the writing and story telling talent for themselves that's the beginning of regime change for them. Perhaps BN should grow quickly before similar start-ups come along. Find a deep pocket backer and compete vigorously and start to grab advertising revenue. Meanwhile SPH is making the same mistakes SIA was and continue to make.
BN window of opportunity is when ST could only watch her helplessly doing the 'unbecoming' and leveraging MSM assets for free. For pennies BN could do the things ST could not or dare not do. The latest example was the PM's National Day Speech in Singlish. I am sure the PM would appreciate that because that is far more memorable than the one in good English. At the same time he cannot be seen to promote Singlish.
BN filling the gaps is just classic entrepreneurship. SPH faces the Innovator's Dilemma. The theory is becoming reality for them. As for Byran Ti, he regularly mixed up the theory with the practical.
