Like a landlord

Seth Godin blogs every day. Sometimes short posts, sometimes longer posts that read like they could be part of one of his books. Yesterday’s post was one of those longer posts about big, centralized platforms:

Like a landlord who owns every building in town, Google can’t lose. A successful business in the online ecosystem is one that has a few dollars left over after giving the rest of it to Google or Facebook (or Apple).

He’s also been on a roll with his podcast. And for more about Apple vs. Spotify specifically, I enjoyed the latest episode of the Supertop podcast.
