Last.fm Meets Twitter. Deborah Schultz: World and Web - not as connected as we think. Over on the Tummelvision podcast we chat weekly with a broad swath of people on the intersection of technology, culture and business.
Our conversations often reflect the participatory nature of - well - everything. How our current hyper-connected-always-on world demands and drives interaction. This is forcing a new focus on the skills and tools that are needed to manage and succeed in this environment -personally, socially, economically and artistically. Social Me Me Me Me Me Media. With more places to share content on more networks, each having their own diverse social graphs, connections and features, many of us are splintering our online identities, choosing one or a few communities over others, and optimizing our sharing and consumption to fit the model that best works for us - and that self-assessment should be constantly changing as our own preferences, and those sites' capabilities change.
But what will never change is people's desire to feel important and interesting, whether they are creators, sharers, commenters or even lurkers. As I've seen time and time again, people often measure a site's "success" for them by how much attention they receive, and if this attention fades, so too does their opinion of that community. Despite significant attempts at automation, people continue to be human, and thus, emotion is involved.
This means that many blog posts are getting no comments to fewer comments. Tweets are not getting replies. I believe in authenticity. Chrome to iPhone Sends Links to your iOS Device from Chrome. Am I mayor yet? We made a quick yet long-awaited tweak to our apps today.

Just a quick reminder of how Mayorships work: To become Mayor of a place, you need to have checked in more days than anyone else over the last two months (60 days), so only one check-in per day counts. Google continues social buying spree with Angstro. Google just revealed its latest social networking acquisition — a startup called Angstro, which builds applications pulling useful information from social networks.
The news was announced last night on the Angstro blog, with cofounder Rohit Khare writing, “While our work here may be done, the struggle for open, interoperable social networks is still only just beginning, and I’m looking forward to working on that in my new role at Google.” Angtro says its products include “apps to discover hot new photos on Facebook, improve Caller ID by using LinkedIn profiles, [add] style and links to Twitter, and create a real-time social address book.” Citing a person familiar with the situation, the Los Angeles Times reported this morning that Khare was convinced to join Google because of vice president of engineering Vic Gundotra’s commitment to social networking.

Untitled. Microsoft Co-Founder Sues Apple, Google, Facebook, YouTube and 7 Other Major Companies. Advertisements Microsoft’s co-founder Paul Allen has sued 11 major companies: Apple, Google, Facebook, eBay, AOL, Yahoo!
, Netflix, Staples, Office Depot, OfficeMax and YouTube, claiming that they have violated four different patent rights which his company Interval Licensing LLC owns. Paul Allen claims that all the lawsuits he filed against the giants are using technologies which were invented by him, but according to the Wall Street Journal, he didn’t invent the technologies, rather he owns the patents for them. Mr. Allen’s suit, filed in federal court in Seattle, asserts those three companies and eight others are using technology developed a decade ago at the billionaire’s now-defunct Silicon Valley laboratory. Most of the companies like eBay and Facebook have already confirmed that they are going to fight against the lawsuit vigorously as it is without any merit. eBay said it was reviewing the complaint and planning a vigorous defense.

Google’s long awaited Google TV platform is getting closer to a consumer launch, and last week Sony sets running the platform were shown at the IFA show in Berlin.
The demoed Google TV platform includes apps, Google Chrome and picture in picture. Sony Bravia’s running Google TV are set for release in November in the United States, with the rest of the world to follow some time thereafter. No word yet if recent models running Bravia Internet TV might be made retrospectively compatible, though as someone who purchased one this year I’m crossing my fingers.

HP Confirms It Is Suing Mark Hurd For Potential Leakage Of Trade Secrets To Oracle. Google's Color-Changing Logo and What the Company Is About to Announce.
The Google homepage is sporting a new logo that changes color as you type, and it's likely a big hint as to what the company will announce at its "can't miss" search event on Wednesday.
When you arrive on the search giant homepage today, you'll be greeted with a gray Google doodle. When you start typing a search query though, the color magically returns to Google's iconic logo. This follows yesterday's logo, a collection of animated particles that react to the movement of the cursor. As many in the media have noted, this week's series of logos isn't just Googlers having fun; it's also a big hint for what the company will be unveiling at a press event occurring Wednesday morning in San Francisco. If today's logo is any indication, Google is about to unveil a real-time search overhaul. We'll be live at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to cover Google's big search event.
