LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, Jigsaw, etc. all provide a great research platform. I use
LinkedIn many times when I'm researching a company because not only does it
give me the company information, key statistics, news articles, etc., but it
also provides me information about with whom I'm connected. I use this
information to see if the company and my connections within the company are
on Twitter. If they are, I will begin to follow them. Why? I may be able to
get a sense of company culture, job postings that... (more)

Google Wave on Ulitzer
Invites left: 26 8
Looks like Google sent out another bunch of invitations for Wave & since most
of my friends are already on Wave, I thought why not give it away. So, in
case you want one, just drop a comment (don’t forget to protect it against
spamming by substituting @ with [at] & the likes) or mail with your name &
email address. I’ll update the counter on top as I progress with the
I’ve used Wave to collaborate on a couple of projects in the last couple of
weeks. Some features are not yet functional, but it does look pretty
promising. And yes, it seems that Wave is more responsive on Google Chrome

This week there were two out-of-the-park posts by Berkman folk: Ethan
Zuckerman on advertising as the Net’s original sin, and Zeynep Tufecki on
the power of the open Internet as demonstrated by coverage of the riots in
Ferguson. Each provides a view on whether the Net is a failed promise. Each
is brilliant and brilliantly written.
Zeynep on Ferguson
Zeynep, who has written with wisdom and insight on the role of social media
in the Turkish protests (e.g., here and here), looks at how Twitter brought
the Ferguson police riots onto the national agenda and how well Twitter
“covered” them. But those events didn’t make a dent in Facebook’s
presentation of news. Why? she asks.
Twitter is an open platform where anyone can post whatever they want. It
therefore reflects our interests — although no medium is a mere reflection.
FB, on the other hand, uses algorithms to determi... (more)

Will Ulitzer and SocialYell Dominate News Content on The Web (Eventually)? is
the blog title of Gartner's Anthony Bradley.
In his blog entry, Bradley writes: "Hype around Ulitzer.com (the
social-journalism news magazine site) is climbing. At one point they were
offering authors 200% of their Google AdSense revenue... I am convinced that
the only way to change the world is through collectively determining how we

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business
Ray Coleman is a small business owner who writes about money management,
green living, and sustainability.
One of the great benefits of the modern age is the ability of small
businesses to conduct a majority of their operations in the digital realm.
Eliminating the need for bulky file cabinets, storage facilities,
photocopiers, printers, and scanners can reduce overhead dramatically.
Replacing costly courier services with emails, and swapping out newsletters
and solicitations for social media and web-based marketing programs means
serious cost savings, as well.
Essentially, all of this comes down to replacing paper with pixels. By taking
your business green, you're not only helping the environment, you're freeing
up a ton of working capital for your venture – and often creating a better
