- The Huffington Post UK: Masterstroke or Misstep? Ob die Huffington Post irgendwann auch nach Deutschland kommen wird?
- Google+ could make Twitter the next Myspace "Publishers are interested in increasing their search rankings and improving their reach. Posting content to Google+1 increases search rankings. The black toolbar across the top of all Google services (other than YouTube), which integrates both Google+ and Google+ notifications, definitely provides reach and is now in front of as many user minutes as Facebook commands. Users commenting or liking on items from publishers will show up in their friends’ toolbars. Even if they only have a few friends, the overall traffic bump will be significant. The Google+ bar has not yet been activated on YouTube, a key publisher and celebrity channel, and likely will broadcast YouTube likes, comments and shares."
- Why the Skype-Facebook deal is awesome for Facebook "Facebook could learn a lot more about Skype’s customers through this partnership, and then try and woo them into Facebook and obviate the need for Skype all together –theoretically speaking, Facebook could replace Skype with its own video-chat backend and no one would notice. In fact even today, if you don’t look hard enough you will miss that Skype logo when the chat window opens up. It is there, and yet it is not there."

Urheberrechtsmaximalisten. Eins muss man ihnen lassen: Sie sind unermüdlich in ihren verrückten Vorhaben.
- Videochat: The Cupholder of Social Networking "And as with cupholders, so will go videochatting. As of the past week, the ability to videochat is pretty much ubiquitous and we'll all do it now and again. But the cupholder isn't the car, and to treat the ability to videochat in any form as tantamount to transforming communication would be reaching too far. Videochatting might become indispensable, but I think it will remain mostly irrelevant."
