(image) So early in the year, when pondering the annual theme of the year (also known as the Web 2 Summit theme), I figured we could not go wrong focusing on data as a key point of control in the Internet Economy. Seems a half year later, the world is agreeing. To the links:

The Shrinking of the Non-Social Web (ATD) People, listen. The web is bigger than “social.” The metaphor is all wrong. The web is mobile, and PC, and whatever else we figure out (chips in our ears?). It’s not some shrinking part of something else.
The Second Coming Of Vatican Social Media (FC) Because even the Pope needs him some data.
