April 20, 2006

Hypebot and Coolfer argue over Sandi Thom. (Adrianne really should have been a part of that discussion. Hypebot defends lies...)

How Tivo Blew It. (Must read lessons in this one)

Is Wikipedia too media-centric? Why Danah can't get her entry fixed.

Umair points to the new America. And it ain't a happy picture…

David thinks that offline brands need to think different about online brands.

What are the two most important words in blogging?

Tagworld and the social networking lottery (or How much more do we get for having a cool music feature?)

March 28, 2006

 

Have you visited Tagworld, yet. Some changes have been made…

You don't have to log in to use their Music Discovery Engine. Just goto Tagworld.com and enter a band you like. It will then play songs from that band and other similar artists. Way Cool.

And Everclear and The Pet Shop Boys have made it into the lineup meaning I've been listening for the past hour…(currently playing: My Little Underground by The Jesus and Mary Chain)

Seeing that Facebook is looking for two Billion dollars (Scott, to save you the trouble, here's a Facebook horror story)  I'm sure Fred and the Tagworld gang will be collecting paychecks soon.

Visit it before they get bought out by Pepsico!

Danah Explains Online Communities

March 18, 2006

Fred Wilson of A VC fame, links to a must read article by  Danah Boyd‘s eTech talk. It’s titled “G/localization: When Global Information and Local Interaction Collide”  

Don’t let the title scare you. It’s actually about online communities.

How to design them.

How to grow them.

How to nurture them.

And the implications they bring.

Sweet, important stuff. (Thank’s Fred!)
