    •  陶闯:2011年,70%的电视机都有互联网接口或部分预装了视频功能,用户市场是存在的。目前规模化的推广还在看国家的政策和政策力度。美国本地市场的互联网电视在今年出货量会达到90%以上。

        提问:如何提升用户的粘度和活跃度,网络视频同质化严重的前提的下,如何走出独特的商业模式,是否可以将网络视频作为一个将人与人的联系平台,从而演变成一个社区,融入第三方机构为我服务?  

    • 陶闯:不是很容易。视频是一个内容为核心的服务。在内容的前提下是可以建造SNS人群关系的。但这是SNS的一个垂直应用。
    •   陶闯:国外有web video和online TV之分类。PPTV是做网络电视(online TV),不是web ideo。当技术门槛减小后,我相信几乎各网站都会有视频内容。他们会将视频体系化,分类化,垂直化。但是强势和高粘度的online TV不会很多。
    •   陶闯:客户端和网站这是产品的两种形态。会员中心是连接器。我有幸请教过youtube创始人之一Steve Chan。我问他对客户端的看法,他的回答“只要你有用户喜欢的体验,是网站还是客户端,并不最重要”。我们的经验是,大量高粘度用户喜欢客户端观看长视频。

    • The other common way for a shareholder to “gain liquidity” is if the company gets permissionfrom the Securities and Exchange Commission to publicly sell its stock. There are a lot of regulations around trying to make sure that unsophisticated members of the general public don’tget defrauded by companies selling ownership, especially post-Enron, so this is a long and difficultprocess and generally doesn’t make a lot of sense in the U.S. if your company is making less than$100m/year and has been profitable for several years in a row. When the company “goes public”and has an “Initial Public Offering”
      (IPO)
      , it creates some new Common stock that it sells toinvestment banks called
      underwriters
      that in turn sell the stock to members of the generalpublic or other investors. Done well, this process generates a bunch of cash that the company canuse to grow, and the company’s employees can sell some of their stock on the market after a brief “lockup” period.
    • Debt-holders are always first in line (if the company has various lines of debt, which debt gets paid first is usually spelled out), followed by the Preferredshareholders, followed by Common.
    •   尽管经过了多轮融资,京东的控制权也未旁落。刘强东指出,在自己的投资人中,99.9%都是属于风险投资人,包括沃尔玛家族,李彦宏以及另外一位行业人士,之所以选择他们,是因为他们在零售、金融、互联网行业的影响力,而他们所占的股份都不到1%。

        虽然没有透露目前投资人的股份比例,但刘强东强调自己的股份依然远超过50%。“京东董事会目前有9个席位,前三轮的投资人共占4席,而我本人有5个董事会席位。”刘强东表示,最近,为了提高决策效率,他正打算把董事会席位缩减为7个,自己占4席,仍占有绝对控制权。
