Privacy is not dead, says SXSWi keynoter Boyd

Privacy is not dead, says SXSWi keynoter Boyd

"The challenge is that what privacy means may not be what you think… Fundamentally, it's about having control over how information flows… When people feel they don't have control over their environment or their setting, they feel as though their privacy has been violated. And they cry foul."

3 Things You Need to Know About Social Media Strategy

3 Things You Need to Know About Social Media Strategy

They should be obvious, but they're by far the three most common pitfalls.

Performance, Smoking and the Nexus One

These are my links for January 6th through January 8th:

  • Website Performance: What To Know and What You Can Do – Smashing Magazine – Website performance is a hugely important topic, so much so that the big companies of the Web are obsessed with it. For the Googles, Yahoos, Amazons and eBays, slow websites mean fewer users and less happy users and thus lost revenue and reputation.
  • Felicia Day » Blog Archive » Disappointment – [..] the fact that they were interested in doing a piece about Twitter and New Media gave me hope that a magazine firmly in the “establishment” was interested in exploring the subject in a new light. And then during breakfast I saw some weird Twitter comments go by…and then I read the article…and oh, gosh. Really?!
    I can’t tell you how many hours I had to resist rage Tweeting about this subject. The use of inane Twitter lingo like “Twilebrity”, “Tweeple” and “Twitformation Superhighway” (Oh God please stop) just signaled that the writer obviously wasn’t well-researched about the service, or the internet in general, really.
  • Learning to Smoke – It's not permitted. It pisses people off. It makes you puke. It confuses you, and it brings clarity. It makes you an outcast, and it helps you meet wonderful strangers. Lessons from a man who did the unthinkable.
  • How to say stupid things about social media – Criticising social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook is as pointless as knocking people who discuss the weather
  • A Few Thoughts on the Nexus One – O’Reilly Radar – There will be many posts focusing on the look, feel, and features of the Nexus One, so I'm going to focus on what Android's latest incarnation says about the competitive landscape – what I've elsewhere called the war for the web.
