Episode 30: Felix Salmon by Product Hunt
Everyone should be doing something lefty. The internet was abt that. Now its everyone wants 2 be big. Optimised. Cool things come out of waste, wasting times, free time, ... eureka effect. Lefty things are not optimised. // "We build a fucking great bridge." Nobody did back then seismic modeling. They just build a fucking great bridge that actually can carry twice the lanes/traffic, you can just put a 2nd deck on it with another 6 lanes. << build 4 prosperity. not optimised. THUS lesson, build ur business that way, 4 prosperity, pay money if u want 2 used it. Dont optimise 4 anything specifically. // Oldest Companies are still family owned. Not pressures by Wall Street 4 growth & profit. "No one is happy being profitable." "You wind up taking risks, eventually falling on your face." #growth-fetish // Venture Capital wants an exit. U put urself in that corner & have fiduciary responsibility. // If u own category/vertical u can sort of set price! & 46 oh hi there world, own platform!!!

Google and blogs: “Shit.” –
Landscaped changed dramatically ~2009/10 forward for blogs/content creators. >> blogs have to be now niche, focused, regular content w engagement (due to algos/ranking), ... // "If you want traffic, Google’s arc makes clear to publishers, you’re going to have to pay for it." Include Facebook. Include Twitter (Promoted Tweets). Include Snapchat (Discover, Linkedin (Pulse). >> All gained sized, thus noise, people gaming the system, ... thus owner changes rules and system for his/her advantage and gain (profit maximization). // // even content curators (by hand) can be 1/2 noise. And the summaries are just shorter bouts of noise to scan through (, Mahalo) - its like joining the dark force. // Things come and go in waves/trends; thus the next wave/trend could be self-published long-form niche content partially free (The Information, ebooks, Pando) which are remarkable (Seth Godin) // snacking is SO western lifestyle, even for information/news - is lowering productivity/focus

Native advertising remains an awkward — but very necessary — mess | PandoDaily "“We can buy page views… but we can’t buy time spent,” Segrist said, euphorically. The New York Times jumped “full force” into native 12 months ago, according to Tomich. “It’s been incredibly successful,” he said. “Success is limitless with this type of advertising.”" | + + + + "Facebook is no longer a social network. It’s the world’s most powerful news reader [...] I no longer go to the New York Times front page to start my day. I get there through the ‘side door.’ Facebook. [...] Facebook drives massively more referral traffic than Twitter, and publishers I’ve surveyed confide that the ratio can be as high as ten or twenty to one.

Costolo’s plan to make Twitter all about entertainment makes perfect sense | PandoDaily
"There are huge dollars in entertainment– more than in news and certainly more than in what your friend had for lunch. Twitter is the only force on earth that argues against time shifting. Sure you can TiVo the Oscars. But you better not open Twitter for two hours if you do. And lastly, with “just” 300 million users or so Twitter desparately needs to go mainstream. Like it or not, this is a generation of consumer Web companies graded on the Facebook and LinkedIn curves. You gotta either have the size of the former or the monetization of the latter. The lowest common denominator on global culture are movies, music, TV, and sports. As his friend Ryan Seacrest can attest, more people vote for American Idol hopefuls than elected officials." || Twitter is now a live stream of what is happening. The shortest & most accessible form to NOW. Not more. Not less. Your hourly quick fix. Part of the home screen. Next to Snapchat & WhatsApp & FB ... + +

The outrage and sadness of Google Reader's demise
the extinction of Reader signifies the mainstream rejection of RSS as a hands-on tool for organizing a living library of real-time information flow. It has been eclipsed by social content discovery. As Brian Alvey, chief scientist of Ceros and creator of Blogsmith (Engadget's publishing platform) noted, "Dear RSS: @Twitter won." "putting content where the users live." - as every content platform is different, so should be the content. a tweet looks horrible on FB, a longer FB entry on Twitter looks horrible. a long email doesn't make sense on FB

RIP, Aaron Swartz - Boing Boing The trouble of genius. > repeat of history, it isn't the same, but it rhymes. --- "Why is it," Aristotle asked in the fourth century B.C., "that all men who are outstanding in philosophy, poetry or the arts are melancholic?" Three hundred years ago, the English poet John Dryden wrote, Great wits are sure to madness near allied; And thin partitions do their bounds divide," a sweet couplet that has since degenerated into the sorry cliche "There is a thin line between genius and madness." ---

january 2013 by asterisk2a Proposed Salmon Protocol Aims To Unify Conversations on the Web
The Age of Globalisation Reaches The Internet
As discussed in Friday's panel at Blog World Expo on technology and the real-time Web, Pubsubhubbub essentially works as a middle-man conduit, taking information from a data's source passing along changed data to downstream destination sites. The proposed Salmon Protocol would similarly watch both source and destination sites for comments, and upon discovering new comments, it would send the new comments to the site which is lacking the full conversation. If multiple downstream destinations are designated, the Salmon Protocol will also populate these multiple sites.
