Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • Gov 2.0: by Tim O’Reilly. “With the proliferation of issues and not enough resources to address them all, many government leaders recognize the opportunities inherent in harnessing a highly motivated and diverse population not just to help them get elected, but to help them do a better job.”
  • $100B US Market for Hyperlocal News: “Community-driven news services have been the next big thing online for years. Can The New York Times or AOL find the $100 billion local-advertising pot of gold?”
  • CRM Iceberg and Social Software: by Ross Mayfield. “When it comes to Social CRM, we have only discovered the tip of the iceberg.”
  • Digital Classrooms: from The New York Times. “Textbooks have not gone the way of the scroll yet, but many educators say that it will not be long before they are replaced by digital versions — or supplanted altogether by lessons assembled from the wealth of free courseware, educational games, videos and projects on the Web.”
  • Betting on the Real-Time Web: from Business Week. “No one knows how the microblogging site and similar online social networks will make money, but investors see a new Web revolution.”
