Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s future: the spirit is willing, but the algorithm is weak - by @jbernoff
Great freaking blog title... "Analysis: Zuckerberg correctly cites filter bubbles and fake news as the big problems which may metastasize, as he suggests, into sensational, polarized conversation. He’s moved well beyond the statement minimizing the fake news problem that won the Bullshitty Award for most outrageous public statement by a corporate spokesperson. But Facebook moves carefully when shifting its algorithm, because such changes create not just public criticism, but shifts in member satisfaction and potentially, revenue."

Can the Media Please Stop Referring to Company Size by Valuation? - by @kellblog
"In the end, because it (metaphorically) sells more newspapers. “Wow, some guy just quit as CEO of a billion-dollar company to actually spend more time with his family” just sounds a whole lot better than the same line with a comparatively paltry $50M instead. Man Bites Dog beats Dog Bites Man every time."

Introducing a New SaaS Metric: The Hype Factor - by @kellblog
"While I credited Domo with creating a huge hype bubble through secrecy and mystery, big events, and raising tremendous amounts of money (yet again today) at unicorn valuations — I also questioned how much (as Gertrude Stein said of Oakland) “there there” Domo has when it comes to the company and its products."

Kellblog Predictions for 2016 - by @kellblog
"The Internet of Things (IoT) starts its descent into what Gartner calls the Trough of Disillusionment. This is not to say that IoT is a bad thing in any way — it will transform many industries including agriculture, manufacturing, energy, healthcare, and transportation. It is simply to say that Silicon Valley follows a predictable hype cycle and that IoT hit the peak in 2015 and will move from the over-hyped yet very real phase and slide down to the trough of disillusionment. Drones are following along right behind."
