Turner Broadcasting Wants To Give You $20,000 via MediaCamp Accelerator

I just sat down with Arte Merritt, who recently started a great new job at Turner Broadcasting (owner of many channels you know like CNN, TNT, TBS, CartoonNetwork, etc).  Arte's job is to help Turner get closer to innovative startups, and he's got cash to back it up.

Turner is the creator of some very forward-thinking brands in media -- back when CNN was launched, 24/7 news was a big departure from the standard evening news cycle.  And Turner has continued to make bold moves in programming, recently picking up Conan O'Brien on TBS.  But Turner wants to explore new and disruptive media distribution channels, and according to Artie, they figured there was no better group than scrappy technology entrepreneurs to help Turner regain a strong, innovative leadership position.

Just over six months ago, Turner opened a San Francisco office and has now ramped up MediaCamp, a twelve week accelerator program that includes a $20k cash component.  Think Y Combinator-style mentorship combined with access to Turner's internal teams.  Applications for MediaCamp are due on April 16th, so if you have a technology that could disrupt the media space and you're interested in applying, fill out the quick application (looks like it should take about 10 minutes) to be considered.

Here's a video of Arte laying the details of MediaCamp out, and why Turner's doing it:

Is Exponential Growth Possible?

On The Best of Sett

This site is for people who want to grow exponentially; to improve their ability to improve themselves. Is this even possible?

Here's an exponential curve:

Making one positive change makes it easier to make more positive changes in future. So at first glance, it looks as though your rate of growth should keep growing, and that exponential improvements are possible.

But clearly you can't grow exponentially forever. We don't encounter people who've reached a "productivity singularity" where they can complete their daily tasks in five minutes, and spend the rest of their time reading time-management books (while jogging on a treadmill) to become even more efficient.
