Twitter’s Open Platform Advantage
Great interview with Twitter‘s Biz Stone (Transcript and Audio here). I love that they get that the API development has been a key factor in Twitter’s growth and success. From Twittervision to Twitteriffic, the apps built on the API make Twitter a more interactive, easier to adapt tool.
I’m waiting (and waiting) for Pownce to get this. The AIR apps are not my friend.
The Next Email – Twitter – Jaiku – Pownce
Robert Scoble is the most prolific and influencial blogger in the Tech space today. From his time as the “Microsoft Blogger”, Robert has shared interviews on new tech advances, processes and people. He’s also a HUGE proponent of Facebook and uses it extensively as a means of communication – he posts videos (exclusive content), links, wall posts and comments each day.
I was on Twitter for a few months before I found Scoble through someone I was “following”. Through his Tweets (and blog, Facebook, etc.), I get an insight into Silicon Valley culture and personnel, that as a Silicon Alley girl, I would never have.
In this Fast Company article, Robert discusses the Twitter, Pownce, Jaiku microblogging services and their applications in business. I’m on all three and use them each differently – but Twitter has my heart.
