Could Kevin Rose make a good CEO at Microsoft? 4

Why Kevin Rose Should be the Next CEO of Microsoft

Today, Steve Ballmer announced he will be retiring in 12 months. This was set to a lot of mixed emotion. In this world of high technology, CEOs seem to have a good exit plan – Bill Gates had Ballmer in mind when he retired and Steve Jobs had Tim Cook. Ballmer has no one in mind (that we know of). This could start people worrying about Microsoft’s direction. What Microsoft needs is s thinker. An innovator. Someone that will understand the corporate and consumer ends of technology. That is why I think Kevin Rose should be the next CEO of Microsoft. Why Kevin Rose as CEO of Microsoft? Kevin started early – creating Revision 3, Digg, Pownce and Milk. He has invested in ventures such as Gowalla, Twitter, Foursquare, OMGPOP, Square, Facebook, Chomp and Formspring. Rose took his company Milk and pretty much turned it into Google Ventures where he gets 300 million a year...

One thing: MicroBlogging… 0

One thing: MicroBlogging…

I was going through a few Social Network sites today, especially microblogging. Each one has their own positives and negatives. Of course we all have been exposed to Twitter and their problems. Something I’ve noticed they have been working out. The down times are not as frequent, although I do notice that sometimes I don’t get twitters of people I am following. With Twitter not being the “End all Microblogger”, I check the other sites. Plurk, Pownce, Friendfeed, tumblr,identi.ca, etc. The reality is that I am in a Social Networking job. The average user might be on one social network or another. I need to connect with all, so I need to be on all.

Welcome to the Mess we call Social Networking 7

Welcome to the Mess we call Social Networking

I am reminded of the Billy Joel tune “We Didn’t Start the Fire”. In the song he chronicles history in about 4 minutes 40 seconds. The chorus says “We didn’t start the fire, It was always burning since the world’s been turning. Well, we DID start the Internet, and we DID start Web 2.0 and Social Networking. Now it’s ignited and it’s time to fight it. With new ideas coming out daily and web sites popping up left and right, it’s confusing to know what is going to be the next big thing and what’s gonna fizzle. Better yet, whats going to mess this whole thing up by taking it in a new direction.

Why Do You Like Twitter? 2

Why Do You Like Twitter?

Jekyll and Hyde. On one side you have a nice person that works hard and strives for perfection. The other hand, you have a beast that will just tear apart what ever it comes in contact with. If you were to know Jekyll, would you accept the Hyde in him? I think we do that with Twitter. On one hand we have a great interface that will keep us up to date with all our friends activities – wherever they may be. On the other hand, you have a unstable and sometimes untrustworthy portal that you cuss at when it’s down. And the funny thing is it doesn’t have to be that way.

Webware is a site dedicated to watching what is popping up out on the internet. Any application that a web developer puts out will be checked out and reported on by this organization. It’s a good thing, too. There are so many out there, it’s tough to keep up. On April 21st, Webware put out the list of the top 100 apps. There were ten categories, each with ten winners. There were 5000 nominees, and 300 apps were chosen as finalists. Over 1.9 million votes were cast to dwindle this list down to 100. According...
