Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • A Manifesto for Slow Communication: by John Freeman (in The Wall Street Journal).  “Given that our days are limited, our hours precious, we have to decide what we want to do, what we want to say, what and who we care about, and how we want to allocate our time to these things within the limits that do not and cannot change. In short, we need to slow down.”
  • Have We Lost All Control? by Sage Lewis. “You can participate in the message. You can pay for your message to go out. But you can’t control the message like you used to.”
  • Hyperdistribution: by Jeff Jarvis. “Right now, news organizations should be trying to reach more people and engage with them more deeply. They should seek hyperdistribution.”
  • Future of Mobile Search: by Mohit Agrawal (via Sunil). “The mobile search should be able to utilize all the resources (location, camera, voice, etc.) that the device has to offer to retrieve socially relevant results that can give confidence to the user in almost every situation even if he is alone or in a completely unfamiliar environment.”
  • What is Really Happening to the Venture Capital Industry? by Bill Gurley. “In order to fully understand what is happening, one must look upstream from the venture capitalists to the source of funds, for that is where the wheels of change are in motion.”
