I Dream of Jedi (or Follow You Follow Me)

So, I had this dream last night where it was West Side Story, but all the characters were from Star Wars. Instead of the Jets and Sharks, it was the Jedi versus the Stormtroopers, Han was wandering through Spanish Harlem

The Next Big Thing in Social Media (or Find Out Who Your Real Friends Are)

So, I have the next great idea for social media. It’s a site where everyone can post to it except the person who it’s about. It’s like the complete opposite of Facebook where it’s all about you. There will be

Social Media and the Nature of Friendship (or Stop Poking Me, I Hardly Know You)

The big problem with living in an age where everyone is plugged into everyone else’s business is that everyone is plugged into everyone else’s business. So far there seem to be two competing models for the online experience. On the
