The idea behind Instant Friend is really pretty simple, particularly if you have the Facebook app already installed on your phone. You install the app on your phone and it uses your login credentials of the Facebook app to connect to your Facebook account. Instant Friend then creates a QR code that other people who use the app can scan to add you as their friend. The app turns on the camera so that it can scan the codes that your friends present.

A while ago I wondered how our relationship to social networking services will change when instead of adding new contacts, we begin to feel like we’d be better off cutting the links to the people who we actually don’t know, stopped liking, or no longer want to be associated with for whatever other reason. I was reminded of this on reading that Russel Beattie has now decided to link out of LinkedIn. He explains:

And in keeping with the rich tradition of orally imparted knowledge and MMS scandals, we rarely like to write things down, and that is why when we go to “foreign”, we spare no chances in pontificating, elucidating and prognosticating on the Great Indian Difference. In India, we have history. In India, we have ancient culture. In India, we have the world’s most unhealthy kind of vegetarian food. Etc. Of course, elderly Indian gentlemen with NRI children play it both ways, hitting forehands down the line glorifying Western infrastructure and orderliness while slicing backhand drop shots edifying the sanctity of Indian chaos when the audience is melanin-challenged. Even the murderous Blue line buses of Delhi will derive philosophical inheritance from the cosmic randomness of Shiva, especially if there’s a white chap politely paying attention.

n the Middle East, this discrepancy is most acute. U.S. administrations for years have portrayed themselves as supporters of democracy, freedom, and human rights. The telegrams tell a different story of intimate and co-dependent relationships with unpleasant and repressive regimes in Riyadh, Cairo, and Rabat. This may have been suspected by many, but it is an entirely different matter to see these relations spelled out in the cool, precise prose of a diplomatic record. (The cables, by the way, are largely very well drafted, belying the mediocre reputation of the State Department.) That Egyptian intelligence chief, for example, is responsible for the torture and imprisonment without trial of thousands of Mubarak's political opponents. In recording the conversation with him, the U.S. cable has no mention of the words democracy, human rights, or fair trials.

Razorfish just released a great new report, Nimble: Publishing in the Digital Age, written by Rachel Lovinger. The target audience is clearly large publishers and mega media companies, but there are important trends here that are relevant to everyone who thinks of distributing content on the web — e.g., anyone in marketing.

BigSheets is an extension of the mashup paradigm that:
* Integrates gigabytes, terabytes, or petabytes of unstructured data from web-based repositories
* Collects a wide range of unstructured web data stemming from user-defined seed URLs
* Extracts and Enriches that data using the unstructured information management architecture you choose (LanguageWare,OpenCalais, etc.)
* Lets you Explore and Visualize this data in specific, user defined contexts. (such as ManyEyes)

50 scientifically proven ways constitute 50 chapters of the book, longest of which take 7 pages. The authors take the position that persuasion is a science, not art, hence with the right approach anybody can become the master in the skill of persuasion. So, what are the 50 ways?
