Why Publishers Don’t See Google As A Friend

April 12th, 2009 · 3 Comments

The raging battle between publishers–particularly the newspapers–and Google has been so overplayed lately that I’m tempted to stop blogging about it until something actually happens beyond the war of words. Still, I recently read two paragraphs, in my view, neatly summarize the terms of conflict, and I felt compelled to share them. The first is […]

Google Already Knows What You’re Thinking

April 5th, 2009 · 5 Comments

An unsubstantiated assertion I’ve seen repeatedly over the last months is that Google needs to acquire Twitter because Twitter knows what is happening (or what we’re thinking about) now, while Google can only look backwards. The latest version I’ve seen of this argument is from Jeff Jarvis’s post today, entitled “Why Google should want Twitter: […]

Clay Shirky: Save Society, Not Newspapers

March 14th, 2009 · Comments Off on Clay Shirky: Save Society, Not Newspapers

There is so much writing about the impeding demise of the newspaper industry that’s it’s becoming easy to tune it out. But it’s refreshing to see a cutting analysis like the one Clay Shirky makes in “Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable“. He starts with an anecdote about how, in the early 90s, the Knight-Ridder newspaper […]

What Would Google Do? / What Does Google Do?

February 5th, 2009 · 15 Comments

This evening, I had the opportunity to hear Jeff Jarvis talk about his recently published book, “What Would Google Do?“. That opportunity was briefly in doubt: 277 people signed up for the event at the Daylife office, which had planned for a capacity of 150. Fortunately for me, my friend Ken Ellis let me in […]

February 1st, 2009 · 25 Comments

Is Google Google-y?

January 27th, 2009 · 9 Comments

Interviewing  blogger Jeff Jarvis about his recently published book, “What Would Google Do?“, Nick Summers asks: Are there any areas in which Google itself doesn’t act very “Google-y?” Not disclosing its advertising revenue splits, for example. Jarvis answers: Right. There are areas where Google doesn’t act very Google-y, which are mainly about transparency. It can’t […]

Not By Links Alone

December 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments

  Dan Farber recently shared this observation about the future of journalism: While the Internet is growing as the place where people go for news, the revenue simply isn’t catching up fast enough. The less obvious part of the Internet overtaking newspapers as the main source for national and international news is that much of […]

If you can’t stand the links, get off the web

December 23rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

I don’t always agree with Jeff Jarvis, but he nailed it in “A danger to journalism“, a post in which he discusses the “GateHouseGate” controversy:  GateHouse has sued The New York Times Co., arguing that the Boston Globe’s new YourTown hyperlocal site for Newton is violating copyright laws by copying headlines and first sentences verbatim from […]

2.0 Means Give-to-Get

October 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’ve been living in a kaleidoscope of “2.0”s recently: web 2.0, enterprise 2.0, government 2.0. I know some of those are already shedding 2s in favor of 3s. But I wanted to reflect on the core tenet of these 2.0 visions: give-to-get. First, let me give immediate credit to the folks at the Greater IBM […]
