Clay Shirky: How Twitter can make history | Video on
Clay is a fantastic speaker. Love his slide of the most clicked links on Twitter during Chinese earthquake: 9/10 were related to the earthquake. Last was laughingsquid's pointer to "kittens on a treadmill".

NPRbackstory uses Google’s Hot Trends data to determine what topics people have suddenly started searching for in large numbers. It uses NPR’s API to search the archives, then uses Yahoo Pipes to create an RSS feed that then gets cycled into the NPRbackstory Twitter account.

The Failure of #amazonfail « Clay Shirky
Though the #amazonfail event is important for several reasons, I can’t write about it dispassionately, because I was an enthusiastic participant in its use on Sunday. I was wrong, because I believed things that weren’t true. As bad as that was, though, far worse is the retrofitting of alternate rationales to continue to view Amazon with suspicion, rationales that would not have provoked the outrage we felt had they been all we were asked to react to in the first place.
