I’d be stretching it to find a theme to today’s Signal links, so why don’t we just get on with it, already? Happy last week of August….to the links:
The dirty little secret about Google Android )ZdNet) A very important piece, to my mind, about what happens when you sleep with those who have business models opposite to yours.
Thnks Fr Th Mmrs: The Rise Of Microblogging, The Death Of Posterity (TC) I must disagree. I love Twitter and especially Foursquare, as pointed reminders of stuff I simply would never have bothered to record otherwise. I don’t think the musings of a professional diarist apply to most of us.
Viral Graphic: What If Solar Power Grew as Fast as Facebook? (Also Its Places Video!) (ATD) We can dream. I mean, man, do we need a “solar” or “wind” Facebook right now. Badly.
Twitter Hires Fox Audience Network’s Bain As Revenue Head (PaidContent) Nice pickup, Twitter, and congrats, Adam!
A Response to Privacy Concerns (WSJ via Romenesko) Long story, but a friend and former colleague pointed out the WSJ’s conflict of interest in its ongoing coverage of privacy and marketing issues, and the response is tepid at best.
The FM program of the day is Open Forum, because it’s just that good.
