Feed Store :: Fail Whale

Feed Store :: Fail Whale

“We love Twitter. We even love it when it’s down. Twitter gives you lots of opportunities to love it.

“This shirt will ship mid-July. We’ll notify you via Twitter, unless it’s down. Yeah… just come back here and check.

“…and if you’re looking for the ACTUAL Fail Whale stuff, there’s an Official Fan Club Store. You make enough with your Etsy craft store to buy from both of us.”

Technology Review: Who Owns Your Friends?

Technology Review: Who Owns Your Friends?

“The incident brought to a head a debate that had been raging for months behind the scenes at social-networking sites: who controls the data users post on their profiles? Advocates of so-called data portability, including Scoble and Smarr, say people should be able to transfer information easily in and out of any Web services they use. Facebook, on the other hand, says it needs to safeguard the information it stores so that it isn’t misused, and that means keeping tight control over users’ information. At stake is not simply the ease and security with which people move between social-networking sites but control of the currency that gives those sites their value: personal information.”
