  • Yahoo! Updates (migration from Yahoo! 360)

    Moderately interesting. Another piece of data in the migration of everything on the web towards a Facebook-style or twitter-style update stream. Dear Yahoo! 360° and Flickr User, We’re contacting you because you shared your public Flickr photostream on Yahoo! by configuring photo-sharing in Yahoo! 360°.

    David McLean of evolt.org got something I wrote onto Yahoo! Canada‘s Quotation of the day — today. “So how do those who would protest get smart? They need to organize in such a way that they can beat the police, and the media, at their own game. Every protester in my mind needs a video…
