Jim Murphy: We will ‘get it right’ - The Record Opinion: Serving

My direct involvement started when I was named online manager of a Gannett newspaper and asked to produce that organization's first Web site, continuing through last spring when a newspaper online site I oversaw in another company was recognized as the best community Web site in the nation by a trade organization. And I have never been more energized about a newspaper company's future digitally as I was when I recently met our company's brand new CEO, John Paton, on his first day of work.

The media, the internet and the 2010 British election

I wrote a summary of the discussion on the Guardian politics blog. As I said there, the discussion was Twitter heavy, but as Paul Staines aka Guido Fawkes of said, Twitter is sexy right now. The panel was good. Staines made some excellent points including how the Conservatives were focused on Facebook rather than Twitter for campaigning. Facebook has more reach and was “less inside the politics and media bubble“, Staines said. Alberto Nardelli of British political Twitter tracker, Tweetminster, said that the election would be decided by candidates and campaigns not things like Twitter.

eBay seeks annulment of Craigslist divorce - 11/12/2009 - Comput

EBay is suing Craigslist, the top US classified ad website, for diluting its shareholding and invoking a "poison pill" to stop eBay from selling its shares to anyone other than Craigslist. eBay hopes to have Craigslist's actions set aside and have its seat on the board reinstated. Craigslist took the steps after eBay launched a competitive website called Kijiji. Craigslist founder Craig Newmark told a Delaware court he had believed former eBay CEO Meg Whitman and other eBay executives when she said in a 2004 meeting that eBay shared Craigslist's core values. He changed his mind after eBay launched Kijiji, Reuters reported. eBay paid $32m for a 28% share and a seat on Craigslist's board. The US Courtroom View Network is reporting the trial. Email Alerts.
