Kevin: Tom Simonite at MIT's Technology Review looks at a new service called PeerIndex, launched by former Reuters innovation head Azeem Azhar, that tries to show influence of Twitter users. There are other companies in this field, most notably Klout, but Azhar says that his service is different. PeerIndex looks "at the information contained in the tweets, and how that information spreads, to find authority in specific subject areas".

Kevin: Craig Newmark of Craig's List has been talking about trust for a while now, including trust in how it relates to news and journalism. He recently spoke at the Reynolds Institute at the University of Missouri. His basic thesis is this: "By the end of this decade, power and influence will shift largely to those people with the best reputations and trust networks, from people with money and nominal power."
I think we will see a shift, but I think that money and nominal power will still play a huge role in our societies and in our politics, sadly.

Kevin: This is a very academic but interesting post looking at changing models of information dissemination and influence. The author comes at this not from a professional journalistic point of view but from a military background. It's worth a read. The author concludes: "I really like Jay Rosen's post, but I see it as a dieing 2D linear model of information control giving way to an emerging 3D, networked, hierarchical, content distribution model with journalists higher in the hierarchy than bloggers, but part of the same network. There is strength in networks, which is why I believe the internet will ultimately strengthen, not weaken as Jay suggests, the authority of professional journalism because building networks will become part of the job. That isn't a bad thing for journalism, larger networks translates to larger audiences."

Kevin: This research should be read carefully. The internet is influential not because of the medium but because of social relationships. People rely on the internet for views from other people, not from companies.

Kevin: Must read post on blog and online journalism success metrics. I like the idea of a 'loyalty index'. Regular readers. Original reporting. Getting people to comment, sign up for the RSS feed or get involved in other ways.

Kevin: It's a post from more than a year ago by Stowe Boyd, but it it has a great point: "Those blogs that we started at Corante that did not take off... : too much speech, not enough banter."

I am not sure we know what we are trying to measure online anymore, and we certainly don't know how.
