LOTD: 9/4/07

  • The WSJ‘s Riva Richmond is calling the move by, oh, I don’t know, *everyone* to create a Facebook app “another online gold rush.” (TB)
  • Dear Twitter: Please devote more resources to keeping your service stable before you start building cool little toys like Explore Twitter. Regards, Chris. (CT)
  • Looks like Google might be maybe getting around to potentially doing something kind of with Jotspot, which they acquired almost a year ago. If they actually integrate it into their current offerings before July 28th, 2009, I lose the pool I’m in. (CT)
  • It’s been 25 years since the first computer virus was released, a relatively harmless prank by someone who just wanted to annoy his friends. (CT)
  • Sites like Daily Candy and Thrillist have survived and thrived despite (or maybe because of) a business model that revolves around e-mail newsletters and not extensions into every interactive space around. A nice testament to not over-thinking an idea. (CT)
