It is called: The Real Life Social Network and it is supposed to have influenced the creation of Google+. What are the key elements from this presentation: #1- "People are spending much more time interacting with other people and much less time consuming content from websites".
There are an uncertain number of people who are so singularly obsessed with Amanda Knox’s case that they virtually slapped me around again and again for these six words and one link. Yes, Twitter is a public forum, and yes, everyone is entitled to his and her own opinions… but why are people so obsessed with a seven year old murder case? The person who inadvertently explained the problems with trolls to me best is my friend Rob, who works as a writer’s assistant and writer on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. When he told me about a recent episode he was working on, he said, “Of course we’ll find the accused perpetrator guilty in the end. The audience loves that. They root for the bad guys to get convicted.” Stephen Robert Morse
Publishing 2.0 How will native advertising scale? That’s the question on the mind of every brand advertiser, ad agency, and publisher. Native advertising has emerged as a great hope for the future of advertising, to capture the billions of brand ad dollars expected to shift from TV, where mass audiences are finally collapsing, and from online display advertising, where already rock bottom prices, consumer attention, and effectiveness continue to plummet. Native advertising is also a great hope for monetizing mobile, where display ads aren’t just dying but DOA and digital dimes have turned into pennies at best. The hope for native advertising is based on its potential to create immense value for everyone involved:

Center for International Media Assistance | Let the people know the facts and the country will be safe. - Abraham Lincoln CIMA has compiled data on the media in developing countries around the world. This data is drawn primarily from IREX's Media Sustainability Index, Freedom House's Freedom of the Press index, and Reporters Without Borders's Press Freedom Index. While these indexes measure different aspects of press freedom, by including each of them, we hope to provide a more complete picture of the media in each country. Also included in these summaries is data from the Committee to Protect Journalists as well as news updates from IFEX.

WHAT'S NEXT: INNOVATIONS IN NEWSPAPERS Alfonso Nieto died yesterday in Pamplona (Spain) but his legacy as a person, friend, writer, thinker, mentor and leader will last for many years. He was the absolute force behind the development of Journalism education in Spanish universities. During his time as president of the University of Navarre we founded INNOVATION. We learned from him many lessons and one of them was that “nothing is more practical than a good theory.” Alfonso Nieto was a close friend of the late Leo Bogart, a founding director of INNOVATION. Like Leo, he was a man of good manners, many friends, sharp mind and highly educated.
