Analyze Words
"analyzes data using the text analysis program Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC) originally developed at the University of Texas at Austin and the Auckland Medical School in New Zealand. Unlike most traditional word counting methods, LIWC focuses on the almost-invisible function or junk words that we rely on. Junk words include pronouns (I, you they), articles (a, the, an), prepositions (to, with, for) and other small words that typically hold together more content-heavy nouns and regular verbs.<br />
<br />
Across dozens of studies, junk words have proven to be powerful markers of peoples psychological states. When individuals use the word I, for example, they are briefly paying attention to themselves. People experiencing high levels of physical or mental pain automatically orient towards themselves and begin using I-words at higher rates. I-use, then, can reflect signs of depression, stress or insecurity."

[1003.5699] Predicting the Future with Social Media
"In recent years, social media has become ubiquitous and important for social networking and content sharing. And yet, the content that is generated from these websites remains largely untapped. In this paper, we demonstrate how social media content can be used to predict real-world outcomes. In particular, we use the chatter from to forecast box-office revenues for movies. We show that a simple model built from the rate at which tweets are created about particular topics can outperform market-based predictors. We further demonstrate how sentiments extracted from Twitter can be further utilized to improve the forecasting power of social media."

Firefox extension that replaces the ads in Gmail with profile information based on the email address of your respondent.
"Where does Rapportive get its data from?
We combine information from several sources; at the moment, these are Rapleaf, Gravatar and Twitter. In the future we will offer integration with many more data sources, both public (e.g. social networking sites) and private (CRM).
We make a clear distinction between:
* Public data, which is information that users have chosen to make public on the internet, and which anyone could find on one of the major search engines. We aggregate public data, take into account corrections and feedback, and show this information to everyone who uses Rapportive.
* Private data, which is privileged information to which only you have access. In order to provide the Rapportive service, we may need to process this data behind the scenes; however, private data will never be shown or disclosed to any other Rapportive user or any third party"

default to public: tweetleak
Art project in Berlin: @tweetleak prints tweets from people as stickers to show how public your tweets are:
"Tweetleak, a monolithic anthracithe-colored pole, which is placed in a public place, aggregates tweets from nearby and "materializes" them. The collected fragments from people's lives on the web leave the digital public space on adhesive paper strips. being taken away by other individuals, they are distributed in physical space, eventually being placed in another context in another environment.

After a tweet has been printed out the author is notified. There is also a notification via twitter when the printed tweet has been taken away. The loss of control over one's data is illustrated: after a short period of time, the user won't be able to track his tweet. "

Evan Williams | evhead: Why Retweet works the way it does
Explanation by Ev Williams on the native retweet function. Which, in my opinion, is going to be a much bigger deal than most people think. Since there's no redundancy anymore, there's little inhibition to retweet, and more and more people will be propagating other people's tweets. Memes/news will spread faster, and spread and origin will become easily traceable. Which in turn will make it possible for Twitter to build for-pay analytics, brand, keyword and link tracking tools. Twitter will become an even more important source of news for most people.
It fits perfectly in what seems to be the first official formulation of Twitter's mission statement: "help people discover the information that matters most to you as quickly as possible"

The End of the Email Era -
The article is stating the obvious, yet given the attention it gets people seemed to be waiting for a well-written description of this evolution in communication we're seeing now...
"email was better suited to the way we used to use the Internet—logging off and on, checking our messages in bursts. Now, we are always connected, whether we are sitting at a desk or on a mobile phone.
These new services also make communicating more frequent and informal—more like a blog comment or a throwaway aside, rather than a crafted email sent to one person.
Perhaps the biggest change that these email successors bring is more of a public profile for users. [...] In the new messaging world, you have a higher profile, packed with data you want to share and possibly some you don't.
Having your identity pegged to communication creates more data to manage and some blurry lines."

Epeus' epigone: How Twitter works in theory
Kevin Marks on Twitter:
- Flow: not an unread count of messages, just a list of recent ones, so you don't have email's inbox problem
- Faces: taps into deep mental structures that we all have to looks for faces and associate the information we receive with people we decide to trust
- Phatic: full of social gestures that are like apes grooming each other (ununderstandable for outsiders)
- Following: Making the relationship asymmetric enables the network to grow, yet keeps it an intimate experience
- Publics: there is no such thing as ONE public sphere
- Mutual Media: spontaneous order that emerges from people communicating in parallel
- Small world networks: we're used to the idea of having an institution tell us what is news—but that is really a left-over anomaly from 20th Century mass media

The Top 5 Reasons RSS Readers Went Wrong
Dare Obasanjo speculates why RSS readers never got mainstream:
- prevalent folder and inbox paradigm inferior to river of news
- read- only, doesn't allow for feedback/conversation within the tool itself
- "faces" are missing! (feeds/feed item visualisation is impersonal)
- hassle of RSS-subscribing
"I hope eventually get fixed since it is holding back the benefits people can get from reading blogs and/other activity streams using the open & standard infrastructure of the Web"

I'm still using an RSS reader and find it superior to twitter for useful stuff that takes a bit more patience than the umpteenth viral item...

The Anatomy Of The Twitter Attack
How Twitter "hacker" got access:
# accessed Gmail for a Twitter employee by using the password recovery feature that sends a reset link to a secondary email. The secondary email was an expired Hotmail account, he simply registered it and reset the password
# read emails to guess what the original Gmail password was and reset the password so the Twitter employee would not notice
# used the same password to access the employee’s Twitter email on Google Apps for your domain, getting access to sensitive company information from emails and attachments
# used this information along with additional password guesses and resets to take control of other personal and work emails
# used the same username/password combinations and password reset features to access AT&T, MobileMe, Amazon, iTunes, domain names and other services. A security hole in iTunes gave access to full credit card information in clear text
# Even at this point, Twitter had no idea they had been compromised
