Hi Tim
This is precisely where the more nuanced version of Aggregation Theory that Ben Thompson has evolved toward is more instructive than you're giving it credit for — or disregarding at your own risk: Abundance (and its effects toward commoditization/modularization/etc) renders your comparisons here useless, since there’s too great of a difference between Google’s orientation to its supply chain and the examples you used — both TV sports content (e.g. NFL/NBC/SNF) and Hollywood cinema (George Clooney movies). For example, read “Spontaneous Regeneration”. 🏁
