Back. Nice Week to Take Off

So I missed a week of the Ring Cycle between Yahoo, MSFT, AOL, Newscorp, and Google. Wow. Somehow I think I'll survive. Things I found interesting last week: Yahoo crowing about an unbuilt platform and launches flickr video. Not sure this would have been the tack had the Ring…

So I missed a week of the Ring Cycle between Yahoo, MSFT, AOL, Newscorp, and Google. Wow. Somehow I think I’ll survive. Things I found interesting last week:

Yahoo crowing about an unbuilt platform and launches flickr video. Not sure this would have been the tack had the Ring not been Cycling. But it does strengthen their case about staying independent. Latest roundup from the NYT here.

I read about this story while in Europe. EU wants to slash search data retention period to six months

Wired 1.1 Masthead

I spent most of this past week in meetings or on an airplane. I missed some good stuff. Like:

* The 15 year anniversary of Wired was in late January. The first issue (which was one of the most amazing journey’s I’ve ever been on, creatively), is broken down here.

* Speaking of Wired, a co-founding editor, Kevin Kelly, is still writing amazing shit, this post is his latest missive.

2004 How I Did

Has it been a whole year? I posted my predictions for 2007 on Jan 1, 2007, and here it is, the first day of 2008, and here we go again. This year I am going to organize my predictions by companies (just the big ones) and trends. I’m focusing on advertising and search markets and the largest companies in that space, as that seems to be what’s on our collective minds these days, and it’s what I seem to have focused on in the past, as I read through my past prediction posts.

A Monday morning catch up, given I was offline a lot last week:

More details on Jimmy Wales’ search play, and a rumor about it looking a lot like social networking.

Facebook rumored to be making its first major M&A play, in China. (TC) But wait…it was just a rumor. I still am curious how FB makes acquisitions with anything but cash, given that massive valuation from Microsoft. Will it close another few hundred million so it has a real cash war chest, I wonder?

But I need more time to post on Facebook’s stuff. I was at a meeting in San Jose when it broke. I mean, WHO COMMUTES IN THE VALLEY? MY *GOD*, it took me nearly three hours to get from San Jose to Marin at 5 pm today. Who does this every day? Any of you?

Anyway….some fun links for the day:

Henry on the Google economy.

The Facebook press releases.



Forbes on Facebook. And the Merc. Mark Z: “marketers are going to be part of the conversation” – sheesh, where have I heard that before?

Search your genome, baby.

Yahoo says sorry for China, in a way.

Newspapers are sorry that Google exists, in a way.
