Friday is a day to reflect on the week that was. Or the five years that have been, in Zuckerberg’s case. Lots of Deep Questions in today’s roundup… To the links:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Talks to Diane Sawyer as Website Gets 500-Millionth Member (ABC) Despite the TV lights, Zuck stays cool. I was asked to comment on this for the set up piece, but I’ve found network news to be, well time consuming and rarely worth the time.
Less Than 1 Year Until The Internet Runs Out of Addresses (RWW) Good Lord, we’ll have to make up some new numbers, quick.
It’s Time For Web Publishers To Start Thinking About Bing SEO (Business Insider) Indeed it is.
