Today's video of the day comes to us from classical pianist and YouTuber Morris Rahbar and shows him playing an amazing Dr. Dre mashup for the students of Compton College.

One of the amazing things about this video if you watch carefully is that the video uses footage from the many smartphones recording the performance. It cuts around to give you many angles and in the age of smartphones this is easy to achieve; just ask the kids to email you the footage and then edit it all together. He uses the audio from one track, so that it is consistent throughout. 


This is the kind of thing that if you are a pianist and you know you are going to play this medly, you want to get it on video because it will be a great branding tool. This video has gotten over 800,000 views in the year that it has been up. No matter your profession, if your brand is a key part of your business then you need to be using video to get your name and work out there. Just take Rahbar's example here.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
