Kevin: From Reuters. "Neighborhood social network start-up Nextdoor has raised another $21.6 million, even as many investors shy away from the sector in the wake of troubled Facebook initial public offering last year." This comes as NBC.com shuts down another local project, Everyblock. I think the two are very different, but it would be interesting to see what makes Nextdoor 'work' and Everyblock not.

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: Brian Dudley looks at the development of Microsoft Vine, which grew out of a sense of the confusion surrounding Hurricane Katrina. The company is pitching this to "emergency management officials, who are intrigued by a new tool that could be used to broadcast and receive information during a disaster or other major event." I'm not entirely sure how this would work in such an instance and not provide mis-information and feed hysteria, which is important in emergencies. But I'll be intrigued by this project if for no other reason, it adds a geographical element to networking and information, which I'm very interested in.
