  • The Extraordinaries, Corporations, Community Development, and Social Good – Great article looking at implications of crowdsourcing on community development and corporate social social responsibility.
  • Twitter’s Endgame: Search is Chat? – Fascinating post, looking at implications of Twitter’s real-time search. This is similar to a thesis I have been working on: Twitter will become the underlying platform for a next generation of forum/discussion groups. It offers the ease of discovering topics/people of interest that old-world discussion boards offer, but with a new service layer that makes it much easier for people to interact with the “discussions” integrated into the existing stream of tweets they are following. So rather than go to yahoo groups or an audio forum, people will use hashtags and search filters, and perhaps overtime other features which twitter introduces (@topic would be great).
