Kevin: Good advice on Chris Dixon about start-ups and timing: "Entrepreneurs should always ask themselves “why will I succeed where others failed?” If the answer is simply “I’m doing it right” or “I’m smarter,” you are probably underestimating your antecedents, which were probably run by competent or even great entrepreneurs who did everything possible to succeed. Instead your answer should include an explanation about why the timing is right – about some fundamental changes in the world that enable the idea you are pursuing to finally succeed."

Kevin: Dave Cohn of Spot.us looks at six journalism start-ups including Storify, a collaborative story-telling project, and Emphas.is, which is like Spot.us for photographers. It's a bit of an overview. It's interesting what Dave says about 'friendly fire' and some start-ups reinventing the wheel. There are a lot of people heading in the same direction in terms of trying to create new businesses around news and information. Some overlap always happens. Worth reading to see who is already in the market.

Roy Greenslade: "Lewis Dvorkin says they receive monthly stipends, and some get incentive-based pay, driven by the traffic they attract to the site. But they also have the option of sharing advertising revenue and taking a stake in the company.

In other words, this True/Slant is clearly trying to create a three-way relationship between journalists, readers and advertisers. Is that the future? It certainly seems appealing."

Suw: Best rant about mobile I've read in ages. Kev had the misfortune to get cornered by a delusional mobile entrepreneur the other day. She should read this.
