Twitter Updates for 2009-06-02

  • Not just America! This is the Network Age. RT @CoryBooker: America is strongest when we are aware of our profound interconnectedness. #
  • @jhagel @azeem So what if “Twitter dominated by vendors & celebrities”? Like the web dominated by pr0n. Follow who is interesting. #
  • @jhagel As always, John, you don’t want to follow — you want to lead! But my point is that following in Twitter = filtering. in reply to jhagel #
  • @jhagel The follow mechanism in Twitter creates more edges. That’s what can foster productive friction. in reply to jhagel #
  • Yes. A Dr. saying the problem is doctors being entrepreneurs. RT @timoreilly: Fantastic New Yorker piece on health care. http://bit.ly/fDW6r #
  • @sivavaid Have you used Google Wave? I’m waiting until I can try it out, but I’m glad they are taking on email innovation. Huge need. in reply to sivavaid #
  • I don’t get why this HBS study says concentration makes Twitter = broadcast: http://bit.ly/v4kb0 Remember power laws? http://bit.ly/EHvhv #
  • I’m on Nokia’s cool IdeasProject site talking about the potential of social data. http://bit.ly/yICVG #
  • RT @wseltzer: Re data.gov, @scrawford says ‘We don’t know what will be done with the data, and that’s the point.’ #cfp09 #
  • @azeem How can you agree with me and @jhagel, when we’re disagreeing about Twitter as broadcasts vs. conversational? in reply to azeem #
  • @PrivacyCampDC Sorry, I’m speaking at State of Play conference on virtual worlds in NYC on 6/20. Will try to follow Privacy Camp virtually. in reply to PrivacyCampDC #
  • Yo, Sears – When I buy a service agmt. and still have the receipt 4 years later, I shouldn’t need 3 calls and a fax to verify it. #
  • What % of Americans would say that microwave ovens use some form of nuclear energy or radioactivity? I’d guess at least 60%. #
  • Snakes on the tubes? RT @DougonIPComm: Ask me about the lady who called DIGEX to complain the Internet was sending snakes through her TV. #
  • @jhagel Agreed, Twitter not (yet) good for sustained, deep conversations. Friendfeed is that for some, and the tools are evolving fast. in reply to jhagel #
  • @jhagel One byproduct of Twitter as edge platform (+Adobe AIR) is finally some innovation in apps for communication. in reply to jhagel #
  • Wondering if there will be any solution to Twitter reply spam. Can’t use the same tricks that work (tolerably) for email. #
  • @jhagel You’re not too negative about Twitter at all. I don’t mean to be a pure cheerleader either. Agreed that trajectory is key. in reply to jhagel #
  • Fun fact: Einstein won the Nobel Prize not for relativity, but for explaining the phenomenon that makes metal spark in a microwave. #
  • @Mlsif Based on Twitter, it would appear that people are just on Twitter all the time. Possible? #
