1. I’ve got your data portability right here…all I need is a thumb drive and the corporate network. Actually, will data portability arguments move to renewed question over ownership of intellectual property created by employees? Who owns my rolodex? What I write on my employer’s blog? We may see disagreements over the answers to such questions.
2. Social Media hippies meet the PRSA squares in Boston. Thank goodness the Merry Pranksters 2.0 didn’t spike the Kool-Aid. Actually, members of the “traditional” public relations community understand more about social media than some folks think.
3. Social Media Club/PRSA Boston Take 2: C.C. Chapman referring to Amanda Chapel of Strumpette as the “heart of evil” and meaning it as a compliment (I think) may have been the highlight of the evening, followed by the near-lynching of Laura “Pistachio” Fitton after she compared “black hat SEO” to porn. Lessons learned: SEOs need to develop their sense of humor, and Pistachio should let someone else start her car for the next couple of weeks, if you know what I mean.
4. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on 60 minutes. What we learned I:
- Mark Zuckerberg did not take Human Growth Hormone or steroids, but has received several vitamin B12 shots, and it turns out that the coders for Facebook Beacon were merely using flaxseed oil.
5. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on 60 minutes. What we learned II:
- Facebook will compete with Google as a search destination, according to Charlene Li of Forrester Research. If you ask me, after he has laid waste to Google, Zuckerberg will then proceed to level, in no particular order:
- Sony (but only the cool parts)
- Matt Drudge
- The Federal Reserve
- Domino’s Pizza
- Hormel, and maybe Kraft Foods
- The State of Idaho
- Harvard (just for fun)
Do you have any ideas for who Facebook will go after next?
