JNEWS: Ripp, Joseph [MC1973] ‘Clock Is Ticking’



Business Media & Marketing 
Clock Is Ticking for Time Inc.’s CEO
Joe Ripp pushes online video, ‘native’ ads and ‘big data’ to save the company Henry Luce built; ‘slow and steady death’

*** begin quote ***

In April, Time Inc. Chief Executive Joe Ripp flew to Procter & Gamble Co. ’s headquarters in Cincinnati determined to reverse an ominous trend.

Like many other marketers, the consumer-products giant is shifting more of its advertising online. P&G, the world’s largest advertiser, cut its print spending on Time Inc.-owned publications by a third last year, according to ad-tracking firm Kantar Media.

Mr. Ripp’s message: We have what you’re looking for. He outlined Time Inc.’s plans to invest aggressively in digital media, including online video, and to use “big data” it collects about readers to help target ads, say people familiar with the meeting. A spokesman declines to say how P&G responded.

Since taking the top job at Time Inc. nearly two years ago, the 63-year-old Mr. Ripp has been racing to reinvent what was once one of America’s most powerful media companies. He also is trying to counter the narrative that Time Inc. is a lumbering, old-guard print publisher unable to adapt to the digital age.

*** and ***

The son of a former production chief at aircraft manufacturer Grumman Corp., Mr. Ripp worked his way through Manhattan College stocking supermarket shelves at night. Now he flies his own twin-engine Piper Navajo and owns a vacation home in Nantucket, Mass., where he is vice commodore of the Great Harbor Yacht Club.

A shock of white hair is the most visible sign of Mr. Ripp’s long history at Time Inc. He joined the magazine group in 1985 as assistant comptroller and became Time Warner’s finance chief in 1999.

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) agrees with the endnote


Fully agree, but you’ve got a typo to fix in your last sentence: pretty sure you mean “stuff they CAN’T print…”

instead of “can”

McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973)

“You must invest in stuff they can print — land, beans, bullets, bandaids, and bullion.”

Yup, I meant “can NOT print”. At least someone read it. Laugh!

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) cites local HG2TG aka Google


John, you wrote, “JR: Yes. There are so many regs and diktats, one is always a “law breaker”!”

Perhaps you or one of the other Jaspers out there can help me. There is a well-known quote (and perhaps more than one) that expresses the idea that the “State” can have ultimate power over everyone simply by setting up such a complex and un-meetable system of laws and regulations that *everyone* will always be in some degree of violation of something and thus subject to punishment unless they “cooperate” with whatever new demand is being levied.

I believe I’ve actually seen at least two different well-stated expressions of this concept. One, perhaps from “1984” (which I really *should* read for a fourth time probably….) and another from an actual dictatorial real-life politician — perhaps a Nazi or a Stalinist or an East Euro 1950s’ Soviet dictator. There’s no simple unique phrasing or set of keywords that I’ve found that will pop it up on my local Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (aka, “Google”) but I’m sure someone out there will remember it and its source.

Best quote that expresses that sense imho is:

“If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him.” — Cardinal Richelieu


Thanks for the comment.

Love the reference to the HG2TG!

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on encouraging the Stazi mentality


From the Jottings on the Vigilante Handicap Enforcers:

“Who died and left these bozos the “parking lot police”?”

The same folks who’ve revived using the “Good Citizen (or Good Student) Snitch Mentality” to enforce smoking bans. It used to be that laws were passed that were so infrequently ignored that we could have enforcement only by designated and trained police. Today we have so many stifling regulations that are so widely resented by significant portions of the populace that we’ve encouraged the Stazi mentality: if you see someone violating a regulation either report it or “enforce” it in some way yourself.

The smashed side mirror is an example of that sort of enforcement. The pregnant smoker getting shot in a parking lot is another.
