Social Interactions are More Complicated than Facebook Thinks
July 8, 2010
I’m surprisingly busy this summer. Since the Semantic Technology Conference 2 weeks ago in San Francisco, my phone has been ringing off the hook. I’ve realized I need to work on starting the personal data locker company before trying to raise a fund to support it. If the personal data locker gets off the ground well, it should take me a few weeks to raise a fund around it. I’ll talk more about that next week, but today I have a few random things to share.
After a bit of research, it turns out that I may be the fifth person to start blogging, back in 1995.
I want you to see a deck of slides by a guy named Paul Adams at Google. He’s starting to explain how complicated our real-life social interactions are, and why Facebook doesn’t really address them (this is what the identity gang have been saying for years). There are rumors that Google will launch something in this area. If you’re interested in social networking, this is an important deck of slides. You can either see the short version or the long version:
