If we can get to the point where advertisers can actually know who they are communicating with, perhaps our advertising ecosystem will evolve to a place where it adds value to consumers’ lives on a regular basis, as opposed to interrupting and annoying us all day long…

When that happens, Facebook’s implicit advantage – that it knows who we are – will become commodified, and perhaps – just perhaps – the open web will once again thrive. http://battellemedia.com/archives/2016/10/google-capitulates-to-facebooks-identity-machine.php Continue reading

Social enterprise is the first concerted effort in the Information Age to at least attempt to rectify that problem, if only […] Continue reading

Good news: 1. We’re getting rich 2. You’re not 3. We’re deleting your wedding photos

David Weinberger, quoting Anil Dash: Now being introduced as a blogger “is a little bit like being introduced as an emailer.” The idea that there was a culture with shared values has been dismantled. He challenges himself to substantiate this: “We have a lot of software that forbids journalism.” He refers to the IoS [iphone […] Continue reading

The Most Beautiful Web on the Internet

I was thinking of calling this post the post “The World According to Gargle” (and then I thought of Harry Nilsson’s “The Most Beautiful World in the World” — and I did a little variation on that theme ). The Gargle search engine tends to reduce people to single websites — if people post everything […] Continue reading

Hi Shel, I bet it’s because many people are wary of investing time into developing content for Google (much like the time they invested in pruning RSS feeds using Google Reader, they do not want Google to pull the rug … Continue reading

Anil Dash makes a point I made in a conversation with Vint Cerf about 8 years ago

The idea captured in the phrase “user agent” is a powerful one, that this software we run on our computers or our phones acts with agency on behalf of us as users, doing our bidding and following our wishes.

Dave Winer’s message to news media: Wake Up!!

They’ve got a pretty nice interface for it, btw — the magical Google Now. It knows what information you’re likely to want to see, and shows it to you. It’s really good. An example of how good/creepy it is. My friend Jen was coming to visit from SLC. Google Now told me her plane was […] Continue reading
