Chris Heuer / Social Media Club:
Is SxSW going to be the death of Twitter?  —  Just about 6 weeks ago, I wrote a post about Twitter being a great evolution of IM, moving to EM, which I called "everywhere messaging".  Well, in the weeks since, I have come to realize it is really about EP, "everywhere publishing" …
Jack Schofield / Guardian Unlimited:
Twitter crowd goes bananas at SXSW  —  I've been resolutely ignoring Robert Scoble's frequent mentions of Twitter in the hope that it might go away.  No such luck.  Twitter has apparently infected the crowd at the SXSW conference in Austin to the point where it how has a Twitter screen of scrolling messages.

A New Battery Takes Off in a Race to Electric Cars  —  VROOOOM!  Or, rather, much more softly: brmmm.  —  A123Systems, a start-up in Watertown, Mass., says it has created a powerful, safe, long-lived battery.  If the cell fulfills the ambitions of its maker, that softer sound will be the future of automobiles.

Bren / Slacker Manager:
The Several Habits of Wildly Successful Twitter Users  —  Twitter is a deceptively simple utility.  That said, Twitter isn't for everyone.  In fact it's probably not even for half of everyone.  But for those that have the patience to find their personal sweet spot, Twitter can be quite good indeed.
