I got access to Nuzzel today, and it is going to immediately join Flipboard as one of the few apps I religiously use everyday to make sense of my Twitter flow. Nuzzel cross-tabulates my incoming stream of tweets, and yields the stories that a whole bunch of my scene are talking about in Twitter….
The web should be a neutral medium. The openness of the web is really, really important. It’s important for the open markets, for the economy and for democracy.

A lot of great findings from this study, including:
- Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest each scored greater dependency ratings among women
- Men generally tended to place more value on video, giving higher ranks to YouTube, Snapchat, Vine and Vimeo

Suffirait-il d’analyser ces logos imagés pour savoir quelles valeurs propage Google? Il a publié en tout 1895 Doodle entre le 28 août 1998 et le 31 décembre 2013. Nous les avons tous analysés à la lumière des mots-clés qui y sont liés.
Getty Images is dropping the watermark for the bulk of its collection, in exchange for an open-embed program that will let users drop in any image they want, as long as the service gets to append a footer at the bottom of the picture with a credit and link to the licensing page. For a small-scale WordPress blog with no photo budget, this looks an awful lot like free stock imagery.
Implications abound but this one is particularly interesting:
The biggest effect might be on the nature of the web itself. Embeds from Twitter and YouTube are already a crucial part of the modern web, but they’ve also enabled a more advanced kind of link rot, as deleted tweets and videos leave holes in old blog posts. If the new embeds take off, becoming a standard for low-rent WordPress blogs, they’ll extend that webby decay to the images themselves. On an embed-powered web, a change in contracts could leave millions of posts with no lead image, or completely erase a post like this one.
