Links for March 16th through March 17th

A little something extra…

I’m on vacation this week and next. Spending a lot of time just hanging out, catching up on news reading during that time.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about what I’m thinking of as “the return of the consumer”: with Facebook, Google, &co., targeting works better than direct mail, TV, and everything. It’s a dream world for businesses that want to create, profile, reach, and sell to consumers, a word we’ve been trying to use the Internet to escape from, but which the Internet is now perfect for. Ironic, or whatever, like the GPL: it turns out the be a really good license for commercial open source companies.

Here’s the first page of of some notes I took late last night:

Consumer 2.0 - Data Nation
