Fun for all the (corporate) family: "As part of the VFQ Education product, we get to design hundreds of activities and challenges for our courses. One of the most controversial has always been the 'Gone Fishing' game. We have had to rewrite it a few times, to improve the instructions, but also to get across its subtle learning points."

"Maybe Google’s real motive is to get the government to also look into Facebook’s often-unfair practices with regard to their network ahead of their IPO. If social and not search is indeed the future, call this pre-subversion. And if there’s any shred of truth to this theory, more power to Google — it’s rather genius (though still extremely risky)."

Great insight on dealing with competition... "Bill was a long-time veteran of battling Microsoft from his time at Borland and understood what I was trying to do, but remained unconvinced. He said: “Ben, those silver bullets that you and Mike are looking for are fine and good, but our web server is five times slower. There is no silver bullet that’s going to fix that. No, we are going to have to use a lot of lead bullets.”"

"In a week that has seen Facebook make all sorts of changes to the news feed we are starting to see some even bigger changes being tested on the site this afternoon. most of them seem to copy Google + and it the changes involve the News feed, photos and how content is updated in real time. Facebook absolutely have their pedal to the metal at the moment and this is possibly the biggest week of changes that we have ever seen on the site in it’s history. Since Monday the entire look and feel of the site has been changed."

"Why is Google now a villain to many in the industry? I don’t believe it’s because they’re evil, I believe it simply relates to the Plainview quote. Increasingly, Google is trying to do everything. And they have the arrogance to think that they can. And it’s pissing people off."

"Our "What Not to Present" contest was epic! Many thanks to all of you kind folks that submitted entries and spread the word about it. Many amazingly horrendous slides were sent in from all around the world. We laughed. We cried. We cringed. [...] and we have a winner!"

"The company pulled out of a UK launch in 2005, deciding instead to focus on its US business. A smart move, if its US growth is to be taken in isolation, but the European video-on-demand market has changed dramatically in those six years. Discounting BSkyB and Virgin Media, the BBC's iPlayer and Amazon's LoveFilm would now be formidable competitors to any new VoD entrant."

"It was not an isolated example of The Times’s needling peer news organizations. In recent months, The Times has slipped a shiv into others on several occasions. Some readers don’t like it when that happens, and I can understand why. It’s unseemly and makes The Times, which is viewed as journalism’s top dog, look like a bully. It’s clear, as well, that some readers expect The Times to apply the same laser-like focus to itself, which doesn’t seem to happen much."
