Somebody at The New Yorker calls office junk (the kind you save until you toss because you’re moving) “accretions of intention.” Same goes for open tabs. So here are my closed ones, accreted now on a blog rather than in my tabs or my brain:

New Clues Tweetified – Google Docs
I’m not ready to tell you what I was working on today (There’s a tease, huh?), but I can share the tabs I had open:
Andy Carvin (@acarvin) on Twitter: “Twitter will be @reportedly’s home base. We’re also on reddit at http://t.co/vW2wka61cl, FB at http://t.co/pLjKRZA4Xx, medium @ reported.ly.” That’s the announcement. A long, somewhat informative volley of tweets follows.
reported.ly (@reportedly) | Twitter That’s its apartment in the Twitter silo.
reported.ly will have no web presence Dave takes a wait-and-see approach. I’m with Dave in giving them some ease to figure it all out.
F2C: Freedom to Connect » March 2 & 3, 2015, NYC David Isenberg’s outstanding conference on topics that could hardly (IMHO) matter more.
Of sharing and millionaires and learning: A Sunday stroll | confused of calcutta Wonderful personal history lessons there.
Data protection reforms: UK government seeks to water down meaning of ‘consent’ Bummer.
Dada Data and the Internet of Paternalistic Things — The Message — Medium A good and scary piece of short fiction set in a future toward which we are clearly headed. By Sara M. Watson.
NY Times eyes deep linking to drive app use – Mobile Marketer – Media On the Times’ own role in the further silo-ing (or perhaps not, sort of) of the Net.
Apps Everywhere, but No Unifying Link – NYTimes.com Frames the problem deep linking is supposed to solve. Or perhaps indirectly also cause.
Bay Area DNA start-up wants to assist customers with designing their own creatures Might excite you. Might creep you out.
This is Dish’s Sling TV: an internet TV service that lets you stream ESPN for $20 | The Verge The Great Unbundling is happening. Here’s what I said about it two summers back.
Alison Chaiken’s Embedded Linux Resources Great list of links.

How to Start a Blog – The Free Beginner’s Guide to Blogging A good primer. One additional note: you don’t need to monetize your blog with advertising. Think “because effects” — making money because of your blog, rather than with your blog.
Chris Dixon on Twitter:Nikola Tesla predicting today back in 1926  Open data: Unlocking innovation and performance with liquid information | McKinsey & Company Why open data is necessary and cool.

A Reading List

I thought I’d assemble a reading list of blog posts and other stuff I’ve written or said recently, for Andreas Weigend‘s Social Data Revolution class at the UC Berkeley School of Information, in which I participated a few days ago. So here goes. All this is stuff published roughly since The Intention Economy came out:
