Fred / A VC:
My Vision For Social Media  —  I don't have a particularly well thought out road map for investing in social media.  I just use the stuff as much as I can and I get urges to do things I can't do.  The rest of our team does the same thing.  Then we look for people addressing those urges.

Social Networks 1% rule or The Community Pyramid  —  What is the social network 1% rule?  Generally in a group of 100 people online, one will create content, 10 will “interact” with it (commenting or adding to it) and the other 89 will just view it.  But, everyone benefits from the activities of the whole group.

Twitter and the importance of architecture  —  The Twitter guys have been getting a lot of flak over the past few months (and rightly so, in many cases) for the unreliability of their app.  But I think they should get some props for opening up and talking about what's going on over there.

Arn / MacRumors:
Apple Bought Me.com? .  Mac's New Name?  —  Earlier today, John Gruber of DaringFireball.net suggested that Me.com might be the name for Apple's .Mac rebranding.  There was no real evidence, however, except that Me.com was registered under MarkMonitor's domain service.
