@Straffo @triplej I’m not going to defend that framework, probably for the very reasons you don’t like it, but that’s the age that’s used.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej According to the standard demographic framework used by everyone from the ABS to media analysts to marketing types.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej No it’s not arbitrary at all. That’s the stated target audience. Youth. That’s defined as ages 15 to 25.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej Hmmm. I’m not sure I like the split of target markets into large and small. I see what you mean, but it seems arbitrary.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej It’d be like me whinging that I didn’t like a magazine aimed at new parents, or at football fans. Who cares what I think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej That’s a bit hand-wavey for my liking, but sure. If the program isn’t being made for you, then who cares what you think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@Straffo @triplej I’m quite serious. If you’re 26+ then you’re not in the target audience, so whether you like it or not is irrelevant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Straffo

@rgmerk @triplej Exactly. Audience outside the target is always nice, but I don’t think much attention should be paid to whining from it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rgmerk

@benetsc @triplej Well, there is the Double J audio stream, though I suspect that’s not what you’re after.
