"This is small beer, however, beside the pernicious effects of Proposition 13, passed in 1978. A populist constitutional amendment that capped property taxes, it has created a hole in state finances that gaped wide this year as recession bit into tax revenues. By limiting local school boards' ability to raise funds from property taxes, it also turned a public education system that once led the nation into one of the worst in the US.

This is the real tragedy, which may seal the fate of Silicon Valley and the state's biotech industry. At some point, the failure to invest in education will cause its technological supremacy to slip away. California already relies heavily on immigrant talent to sustain its high-tech workforce, including programmers from India and biologists from China." Downsides to participatory democracy. How much is the fault of human idiocy, and how much Byzantine bureaucracy?

"What you should do is realise that your strengths are no longer speed, but rather skill, craft and accuracy. Having realised that, you should stop updating minute-ly, hourly or even daily. Instead you should follow the lead of the likes of Newsweek and the Economist and publish weekly.

Yes, weekly – and not as an online free-for-all either, but as one single, self-contained, tangible, paid for issue, possibly in print but preferably published electronically on devices like the Kindle or behind a subscription wall on the web. The medium doesn't really matter, what matters is that the daily pressure is off, and that you're producing a complete paid for product."

"Web companies that rely on advertising are enjoying some of their most vibrant growth in developing countries. But those are also the same places where it can be the most expensive to operate, since Web companies often need more servers to make content available to parts of the world with limited bandwidth. And in those countries, online display advertising is least likely to translate into results.

This intractable contradiction has become a serious drag on the bottom lines of photo-sharing sites, social networks and video distributors like YouTube. It is also threatening the fervent idealism of Internet entrepreneurs, who hoped to unite the world in a single online village but are increasingly finding that the economics of that vision just do not work."

"Record labels and rock stars alike are eyeing new revenue streams as gamemakers compete for musical talent, scramble to secure rights to original master tapes and bring in aging artists to re-record classic rock hits."

"Texas lottery commission spokesman Robert Heith said the games are voluntary and are designed to entertain. He added that his agency has one overriding mission: to generate revenue for Texas public schools." Sad.

"While it is relatively simple and straightforward, it does take some elbow grease."

"Armed with PC, mobile and interactive content and tools, consumers are vying for control of attention, content and creativity. Despite natural lags among marketers, advertising revenues will follow consumers' habits."

"So just to review, that's: A best-selling author and genuine tech celebrity writing a thoughtful essay nearly every workday on a top-50 blog for an audience of around 30,000 people/day. And the pay for that is about $280 a month." Damn.

"Well, it depends who "you" are. If you're an aggregator, sure. But if you're like the majority of Long Tail microproducers, direct revenues can be harder to come by."

"It should be obvious to anyone that it doesn't make any sense to maximize short-term revenue at the expense of long-term viability, but apparently some bitter Wall Street types and confused journalists haven't quite figured that out yet."
