Not-to-do's in Social Media – A nice simple guide.
A nice guide on telling hobbies from passions – I approve.
A (sad) roundup of health insurance issues and freelance writers.
Decline in weekly unemployment rates – Doesn't mean we're out of the woods, but there's SOME good news. For now.
Judy Sims, formerly of the Toronto Star Media Group, takes a look at how newspapers can re-invent themselves – A nice read that's probably extensible to many businesses related to information.
Have we always been hung up on vampires? It seems they keep coming back and burning out.
Twitter's recent venture capital also comes from T. Row Price – I think this is the last round of funding – they now go public and profitable (or get sold). Seismic shift coming soon in social media – watch out.
An unofficial Twitter App store? Yes, apparently so. A central place for the huge amount of twitter-tools. I get the intuitive feel that we're seeing something big happening here, but I'm not sure what – the idea of a simple service people build onto, universal app availability, etc. Could Twitter become the foundation of entire services? Or tools? (a $99 Twitter-gizmo with wireless?).
Nvidia will make Chrome OS devices – So we've already got people heavy into Chrome OS. That puts a bit of a bite on Windows and Microsoft (and continues the Everything Wars).
Console status report – Sony's PS 3 Slim has sold a million units worldwide, and Nintendo confirms the Wii price will drop to $199. I want to see the effect the Nintendo cuts have on prices – as one possibility I foresee is that there's nothing past this Nintendo can do to move systems.
