"This is just how the world works. Harassing media people to admit this dynamic is a lot like arguing with a J-school professor about whether "objectivity" exists. Everyone knows it is how it is, but we've all mutually agreed to ignore it and proceed ahead, for our own mutual benefit. Any fair media critic would readily admit their biases (to a point); the more strenuously one argues their own ability to be judgmental of their own friends and drinking buddies and business connections and sources and employers, the more full of shit they generally are, and the more worthless their commentary. It truly is the Facebook-ization of the media, in the sense that you can watch much of media criticism evolve into little more than the media critic's own Facebook page of links to friend's articles and formalized mutual masturbation with fellow colleagues in the media."

"A good manf folks out there still spend more time offline than on. For these people, screen time is spent doing business-related activities at the office (+ occasional jaunts to YouTube and Facebook) followed by briefer after-hours web surfing that includes catching up with friends on Facebook, reading personal email, downloading music/media, streaming videos and/or playing games. But online sessions must be interspersed with other real world activities like cooking dinner. That's why it's no surprise to find that the rise of the mobile phone corresponds with the rise in Facebook's (and other social networking sites) numbers. It has become a do-anywhere activity that captures people's attention whenever they have free time instead of an activity that requires people make time for it.

"Developers and designers will now have to take this into consideration. Either they make their applications accessible & simple enough for least common denominator - or risk losing to competitors."

"Sprint is launching the Novatel MiFi 2200 personal hotspot on its network. If you're not familiar with this product that other carriers already use, it connects to Sprint's 3G network and turns it into a local WiFi bubble of around 30 foot around you. It runs on battery and can last a theoretical 5 hours in active mode and 40 hours in standby mode. It is still a 3G wireless connection, so don't expect multi Mbps speeds, but still, it's convenient.

"The price of the device is $100 (after a $50 rebate and a 2-yr plan). Sprint has two monthly plans that go for $60/mo (data only) or $150/mo "simple everything plan" (voice+data). don't forget that there's a monthly 5GB cap."

Thursday, Trilliant, a smart grid network builder, acquired Skypilot, a broadband wireless company that used to specialize in long-range, high-capacity WiFi for rural areas and cities.

“The unique technology in Skypilot was helpful in the municipal WiFi market but maybe not determinative,” said Eric Miller, senior VP at Trilliant. “But you take that technology and move into the utility market, and it’s a breakthrough technology.”

The acquisition follows a move by another former municipal WiFi player, Tropos, into smart grid networking. This month, Cisco started talking big about energy, too. It’s a natural area for these companies to expand their businesses because the smart grid is fundamentally about about networking the pieces of the energy system.

“Historically, power supply infrastructure has been created to serve load as a passive element of the system,” a Department of Energy report noted.

In other words, right now the grid is just a bunch of wires.

"Many people who watched live streaming video of the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama on Jan. 20 may not realize that their PC was used to send the video to other PCs, too. Clicking "yes" to a CNN.com dialog box installed a peer-to-peer (P2P) application that uses your Internet bandwidth rather than CNN's to send live video to other viewers."

Excellent discussion on the strength of weak ties -- how people self-organize into information networks... Twitter, facebook, wikis, etc. It's important to make these technologies fritctionless, lower barrier to use. Context of business and intelligence communities.
