  1. “The New York Times Company owns a stake in Mr. Battelle’s latest Internet company, Federated Media Publishing.”

    I didn’t know that. That’s cooler than being covered.

  2. Congrats.

    I think you missed something here.

    You really *understand* these guys and what
    they’re doing. They want to create

    a monster.

    Or, rather, an awareness, an intelligence,

    or something like that.

    That’s the book. And worth following up on.


  3. I quite enjoyed this article and instantly thought about a site called PubSub (http://www.pubsub.com). The site says it gives you the ability to search the future: “Traditional search stores data and then allows you to find documents within that store of data. PubSub operates by first storing your subscription query, and then watching for new information that matches it.”

    You basically just set up a subscription and enter keywords (more specific the better) and then PubSub lets you know when those keywords show up on the web.

    It would be really cool to check out the PubSub subscriptions and compare those to Google Trends to see if and when they show up.
