Well, it’s Monday night, but I’m in NYC, and I am pretty sure Tuesday is going to be a blur. So here are the links I read on the plane out here (love that Wifi). Expect news from me soon on the themes and lineup for FM’s annual CM Summit (this week I hope) as well as the annual Web2Summit. Meanwhile:
Internet Access Viewed as Fundamental Human Right (AllThingsD) Our culture is coming to a conclusion that makes a lot of sense to me – connection is a human right.
Time To Take The Internet Seriously | David Gelernter | Edge | 4 March 2010 (Edge) Hard to follow, but the fundamental argument is one he’s made for years: Lifestreams are coming, the old web structure is … old.
CMOs to Ramp Up Hiring, Budgets; Double Social Media Spend (MarketingProfs) Are you kidding me? What’s not to like about this story?
How Do You Keep Mass Influencers Engaged? An Example from TripAdvisor (Forrester) Ya’ll know I love case studies.
All Your Apps Are Belong to Apple: The iPhone Developer Program License Agreement (EFF) I am not feeling warm and fuzzy about the business constraints Apple places on its own ecosystem. It’s rather like the Patriot Act. Open up, Apple. Open = more profits in the long run.
Don’t Blame Your Community: Ad Blocking Is Not Killing Any Sites (TechDirt) A counterargument to the Ars post I noted yesterday. TechDirt is an FM author and the programs he notes are FM programs.
Statistics for a changing world: Google Public Data Explorer in Labs (Google Blog) Google creates a visualizer for public data. Do more of this, pretty please, Google.
MediaForge Ads Charge Only When People Interact And Buy (ClickZ) Interesting model. Good luck with that….
