From Many Tweets, One Loud Voice on the Internet  —  "ONLY connect," the English novelist E. M.

Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Doubleclick turned down Microsoft money?  —  John Battelle reports that Microsoft was actually offering more money than Google was for Doubleclick and that Doubleclick went with Google anyway.  —  I heard the same things about Flickr.  Rumors are that Flickr's owners turned down AOL's money …

Move over MySpace, Gaia Online is here  —  By the middle of last year, it was attracting half a million unique visitors monthly; fast forward to last month, and that number is two million.  It's not a traditional MMO like World of Warcraft; it's not a social game like There …

Yes, you should be using personas  —  Personas seem to go in and out of fashion.  Not long ago, people were advocating hyper-researched personas done in painstaking detail, these days designers seem more inclined to leave them out of the process.  —  So, are personas actually useful or should we stop wasting time and ditch them?

It Don't Mean a Thing if You Ain't Got That Ping  —  THE BlackBerry network went dark last week — cache-flow problems, apparently.  Service stopped for a mere 12 hours, but to bereft users, 12 minutes was too long.  Information feeds our lives, they protested, and the BlackBerry provides it.
