How to have a good conversation
> What is conversation for anyway?  I don’t even recommend being charming, or trying to be charming, unless a work situation is forcing you to do so.  Let yourself be sullen when the mood beckons.  Feel free to let eye contact lapse.  Don’t repeat back what you’ve heard.  Say something surprising.  Be willing to go meta.  Most of all, try to establish a “we actually can have a more genuine conversation than we thought was going to be possible” level of understanding, taking whatever chances are needed to get to that higher level of discourse.

We’re putting all this stuff out there, thinking that we’re having conversations. But actually, we’re creating evidence for somebody else’s drama.

If you’ve ever wondered why Facebook is such a joyless place, even though we’ve theoretically surrounded ourselves with friends and loved ones, it’s because of this need to constantly be wearing our public face. Facebook is about as much fun as a zoning board hearing.

Jack Mirkinson: What I Read - The Wire
I have to work myself up in the morning to Twitter, because it’s so immediate and stressful. You shouldn’t have to dive completely into it. At first I’ll scroll through, and see if there’s anything from the last half hour or so that I may have missed while I was getting myself mentally prepared for the day. Then I’m off and running. For the rest of the day, Twitter is the ruler of everything. I think that’s not an uncommon thing for people in our line of work to say. It’s really trumped everything else. When I started this job almost four years ago, I wasn’t even on Twitter and I barely used it as a source. But then, gradually, it took over my entire brain. Jack Mirkinson, Senior Media Editor at The Huffington Post.

Facebook pays $19bn for WhatsApp. Yep. $45 for YOUR phone book • The Register
I’m envisioning one of those butcher charts with all the cuts of meat, except it’s a human and all their social info and personal data/records: If Facebook values your phone book at $42, or £25.24 today, what do you think your lifelong medical record is worth? The health industry is a colossal business, much bigger than internet social networking, and pharmaceutical companies desperately need the data to reduce the risk on their own drug research planning. They have the means and willingness to pay for this data. [The UK government says £11,865.]

A nice burger of the enterprise stac from Carl Lehmann’s report, “The impact of ‘social business’ on enterprise architecture and how it may trigger M&A.” It’s a good report covering how dragging in all that social stuff is messing with the above stack, along with plenty of thought put into companies that might get in the M&A cross-hairs as a consequence.

Tim Cook’s outburst |
The implication is that users/subscribers/audience members are loyal and will stay with the programming for some time. There is also a second implication that businesses which are not measured by audience size don’t have this loyal and recurring revenue base. The absence of an “audience” implies transience and impermanence and results in deep discounting of long-term viability. Which is why ecosystems are the desired business construct for technology companies. They allow a more consistent and repeatable transaction model and offer a predictability which is sorely lacking […] when technology changes rapidly. It allows a company to define itself on its customers rather than on its products. From Horace

Connected Culture and Oblique Strategies - Episode 4 - YouTube
Senior Dancy and myself are back to talk about life in a too connected world and oblique strategies for coping with the world outside out head. As ever, very soon, there will be a proper podcast. In the meantime, check out the video above, and here’s some show notes: The Facebook culling, by Kim - this is a good metaphor for how I feel like I should be thinking about work Shingy Meetings in real-life vs. plain-text interaction Is Google Docs a dancing bear? Dumb Starbucks and peekinto The fallacy of opportunity cost - “your time is worth $xxx/hour”; not when I’m washing dishes. Or should I really have three toilets in my hotel room?

Connected Culture and Obscure Stuff - YouTube
I’ve spent years puttering around at the “infrastructure layer” in IT: programming, systems management, cloud, all that gunk. From what I can tell much of the growth in IT is being driven by companies wanting to engage in “social” more. What is “social,” though? Indeed, that’s one of the things this podcast will try to figure out (hopefully with as much delightful rat-holing as Horace). Also, we’ll discuss my need for slippers that masquerade as socks so I can get them past my wife’s 2nd floor blockade. Mostly though, it’s a McGuffin for getting to talk with Chris more. On that note, here’s the video we recorded earlier. A podcast format with all the bells and whistles will follow. We just having a working title now: Connected Culture and Obscure Stuff, which is much better than our original working title.

BART - BART partners with location-based service Foursquare to encourage transit ridership
This is really something trend-y. Foursquare is a post "we don't make money" dot com company, so it's good to see what they're figuring out revenue wise. Integration with the real world is also the interesting bridge here. The web traditionally is unattached from meat-space, where-as many newer social things, and esp. geo-location apps are slaves to 3D space rather than floating above it like a ghost.
