Mobile & privacy
Mobile phone networks, get your houses in order. Here is how much mobile data consumption is expected to grow in the next four years… That is according to Cisco (NSDQ: CSCO) Systems’ Visual Networking Index data, republished in UK communications regulator Ofcom’s International Communications Market Report 2011. UK users are the most data-hungry. In 2010, average monthly data consumption per customer jumped by 108 percent. But that still only reached 268Mb per month.
A friend of mine, Dustin Luther ( @tyr ) has created an interesting algorithm that he uses to determine the “most influential” people in a particular subject area on Twitter. You seed the algorithm with 10 Twitter usernames who are in the subject area, and then it analyzes their Twitter profiles and determines who is most followed amongst their peers. Since the seeding process is rather arbitrary, the results are in no means scientific or conclusive, but they are very interesting. I recently ran the algorithm using 10 names from the mobile industry and here are the top 20 names that were returned from the algorithm.
