In January I took a cofounder & COO role in Second Screen, a mobile startup in LA's Silicon Beach that aims to become the Netflix of bite-size series.

"Wouldn't the clever idea be to create an app where viewers can watch content but also comment about it?" asks TVB Europe's editor in her note prefacing the magazine.
Estella talks about social discovery: "Instead of an algorithm like Netflix has, we use a referral system. You can see what your friends are watching."

This was a fun night with Fast Company journalist EB Liza Boyd at the Elks Club for Salon founder David Talbot.

Second Screen, where I am COO & Cofounder, is now accepting film submissions for consideration.
