Matt MacAllister nails it – Rethinking news for a world of ubiquitous connectivity

Yahoo as a platform – wow – that’s pretty revolutionary.  Only 10 years late.

Important changes happening at the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City!  Lets hope they not only continue to support the city’s efforts, but double down!

Its fascinating for me to see Kansas City – and it’s Google Fiber driven new fame – trickle through our industry.  This is last week’s news – not being reported by TechDirt – spreading the meme far and wide.

Anything about the intersection of software, the Open Internet and higher education – is a good thing.

Basic ground rules for working remotely

Lenovo to manufacture laptops and tablets in the U.S.

Congrats to inCharge – on your investment from ThinkBig! And congrats to Phonefactor on being acquired by Microsoft.

If someone you know starts talking about setting up their own data center – tell them NO!

Polycom has figured out how to connect to Skype, Facebook and Google Talk – with their CloudAxis platform. NICE!  But theyll have to be SIP and WebRTC compliant to become a universal standard.

LifeLong, Streamweaver, WebPlatform.org, Symbolab,
