Not even a phrase until just now – Dumping Ground-Onomics. This means, I have a bunch of good stories that I won’t have time to write about today. Beyond a short blurb below, which has been called a Round Up in some circles, even by me. I figured it was time for a new term, and Dumping Ground-Onomics is that new term. Do you like it? Yes I could dump all of this on my tumblr blog, but figured that would be tumblr overkill.
Jive – Is going after the social business software market hardcore with their latest announcement today. Should be interesting how they fair in the corporate marketplace. The most interesting thing about this company is that they are not some new kids, but have been around since 2001.
drop.io – is rocking it right now with their real time conference room. Streaming is where it is at. The above chat/conference is really nice, and agree that streaming seems to be the key here along with real-time speed.
Users will now be able to search through videos from more than 30 video hosts, and just as it handles Web queries, the engine will put recently “buzzing” videos on top. This means the results of any given search term will change on an almost daily basis depending on what’s trending, or as OneRiot calls it “raging.”
Guardian – They realized that newspapers are dying quickly. They also realized in the old saying of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em“. Nice to see a good newspaper keep it alive the best they can. More about their open platform can be found here.
A few more interesting items that you should know about – Paymo and Hi5 working together, music site for indie music called thesixtyone, and lastly music’s darker side – EMI or rather the old world order doing what it does best – suing the new world order and innovation.
While this serves as a “wrap up/round up” for this Tuesday, I did however post two blogs over on siliconANGLE this morning – the first one – Free Ride Era is Ending – and – this one here – Monkey in your old High School Cliq. We need more writers/bloggers like the blog that was written yesterday – Content Distribution is Changing Again – by Nova Spivack.
Technically Speaking, if you are a blogger, social media person, or someone that likes to write about what I just put here on the dumping ground-onomics post – you need to come over to the siliconANGLE and register to be a regular contributor!
