Annotated links from my RSS feed (mostly); some have also been shared on Twitter.
Mostly from Google Reader:
- MyPosterous: The Economist on music piracy: flawed article, but still worth a read
- MyPosterous: The Economist on blah CEOs
- GoogleReader: themes from COM546, evolution of digital communication technologies – Slideshare – Digital Strangelove (or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Internet)
- GoogleReader: if you’re not tired of the vilification of Google by media moguls – (1) TechCrunch – How Murdoch Can Really Hurt Google and Shift the Balance of Power In Search (2) Inconsistent policy at WSJ does not “make sense” (3) My piece from last week: Murdoch on Google, Copyright and Pay-To-View
- Media Transformation: Up for grabs, the nature of “authority” (Clay Shirky, Yale confab)
- Politics + Media: Should reporters have to “ok” taping (and subsequent transcript release) of an interview with a public official? IOW, should such recordings be exempt from “thou must get permission to record” laws? I think these interviews should be recorded as a matter of course – by both sides. Case involves former CA Gov Jerry Brown. See The Slow Death of Off-the-Record
- Ethics In Media: Washington and Lee should not have invited Jason Blair to talk ethics. (via Romensko) Amen.
- Read the small print: John Grubot at Daring Fireball reads Joe Wilcow the riot act on Nokia v iPhone profitability claims
- Politics + Economics: How to prevent the next financial crisis
- Politics + Twitter: I said last year that Obama’s tweets weren’t his: “I’m too clumsy for Twitter” (Mashable)
We’ll see if I can turn this into a quasi-daily habit. Some of these were seeded individually via Tweets.
