      Give the man a break, he’s covering a great story and all you can see is a small typing mistake.

      Thanks Steve for the great insight, this will surely make a big impact online. I wonder who’ll comeout as he victor Facebook or Twitter?

      As for Friendfeed, it will be tough on them as Facebook will definitely be looking at internalizing a lot of features that they have, and eventually might have to cut them off (as a competitor). Goodluck to them.

    Excellent post, I was all ready to write a great comment and then I read shankar’s comment and it killed my mood.

    I hope I didn’t make a spelling mistake in this comment because shankar wouldn’t let me hear the end of it.

    By the way, the author is human and can make a mistake from time to time.

    @shankar, learn to speak in readable english and without using “u” instead of YOU before you criticize, you are simply cluttering this fine blog with your worthless junk.

    That’s my rant.

    Its pretty clear that ONE of them will get down to do it for sure. It just remains to be seen who does it first. I guess friendfeed will drown, while facebook and twitter will strike a mutual deal of interoperability of some kind. Not sure though, but that would be the best solution for users like us.

    Steve. You mention “What emerges is a new magazine model, where aggregators provide efficiency and editors context for the combination of static and dynamic information flows.” This is very similar to what feedly is trying to achieve. Have you ever had the chance to play with Feedly? Do you think it could fit the model you are describing? Would love to get your feedback (on or offline)

    OT: Steve, I’m listening to Eric Schmidt’s interview with Charlie Rose and he mentions micropayments.
    I wouldn’t mind knowing what’s your take on this and who the players are.
    I also would like to hear your take on Facebook’s photo archive. What will it take before that data’s being used in a retail environment or on trade shows so they know who I am. Privacy is a big issue here, what other problems do they have to overcome and what’s holding them back? Thanks.
