aapl v msft: lies, damn lies and marketing.
msft can’t market for toffee aapl can but play it very close to the wire who is arrogant and why do the public respond? one rule for one, one rule for another reference twitter conversations…

Facebook and the Social Graph- Who Benefits →
web 3.0 - personalisation or targetting?
will we really be in control or will web 3.0 be just a way to get better targetting for ads etc. are we heading for a minority report style system - positioning via mobile etc. then having dynamic ads specifically targetted when you walk past them? as Chris Brogan says: who does the social graph really benefit? And we’re not just talking facebook - what about google social api?

Why doesn't Digg have a category for Social Media
Isn’t it a bit ironic that one of the most popular web 2.0 / social web sites doesn’t actually have a category for social media?

what was the fuss over twitter packs?
chris brogan’s attempt at creating an easy way for new tweeps to find and connect with like minded people blew up and people threw their toys out of the pram about being on a LIST! still we allow ourselves to be tagged, categorised linked to and found be all sorts of searches so what’s the big deal? as has been said perhaps the way it was done was wrong (despite the best intentions) -...

social media and human behaviour
what do we do when a service goes down? twitter as example - recent scaling issues left service with down time (Shel’s open letter to Twitter) what do we when it goes down? do we get a fix elsewhere wait for the service to come back what does it say about us as people? makes sense not to go to another service if only a short outage - get fragmented conversation - if anything is urgent...
when choosing social media services: - ensure you have complimentary services rather than competing ones (i.e. only one of each type if service that you actually use regularly) - don’t stretch yourself too thin Yes, sign up to many to test fuctionality but only so that you can a) choose which one to use, b) have a fal back in case the worst should happen.
extending the blog
How best to use social media to extend the blog? audio clips - rather than a full podcast. perhaps add as attachments or leave on tumblr and post links? video clips - same principal, just brief brain farts to back up or extend a point made in a post
Need a plan to using web 2.0 etc Avoid stretching too thin
reply to chris brogan
Herein lies the beauty behind the concept of the whole web 2.0, UGC, Social Media movement. It has all been designed so that even the self confessed technophobe can sign up and get going straight away without really knowing the “significance” of what they are doing. This ease of access is key to accepting the technology but the fear is that we will become so overwhelmed with social media and...
interesting to see what people want to read
interesting discussion about Office as SaaS but biggest draw over past 5 days has been the thoughts on Mahalo Web 2.0 seems to be a very big draw - explore
how to best use the tools available
how to make connections with others and connections between the tools themselves using audio? full podcast or snippets? brain farts video - pretty much the same little snapshots - ideas and impressiosn - use as extension to the written blog?

is UFC healthy?
when you have a large population (such as Digg) maybe smaller populations then no - like Mahalo (where the editing team chooses what goes in) you start heading towards a private favourites list rather than a realistic representation of the current state of affairs

UGC + Social Media thoughts
how far can we go with UGC + social media? how many mashups and mashups of mashups can we have before they kill the quality of the conversation? just because we can doesn’t mean we should! planning for blog post
