Summary:

As the year winds down, Instagram just can’t stay out of the news. In this week’s podcast we talk about its Terms of Service tiff, as well as Netflix’s massive encoding, and how to find a good co-working spot.

We kinda wish that we didn’t have to spend the last GigaOM Podcast of 2012 talking about Instagram again, but they went and changed their terms of service, throwing the internet into a tizzy, so Eliza Kern helps us sort through who’s selling whose filtered photos. Then Janko Roettgers talks to us about Netflix encoding its movies 120 times as well as Redbox’s streaming service. And finally, Ki Mae Heussner gives us some tips on how to find the right co-working spot.
