Here’s a great quote from Mike McCue of Flipboard in an interview by Robert Scoble at the launch of their version 3: algorithmic & human curation woven together is extremely powerful Marcy and Mike McCue, Flipboard’s co-founders, set out to create a personal magazine. The Zite acquisition earlier this year brought them closer to that vision. Now they have a better […]
I have tiny hands, so I’m all for Luke Wroblewski’s call for placing navigation at the bottom, especially when a handheld is any larger than an iPhone 5.

I don’t want opting out to be the only action I can take! If advertisers are interested in people like me, I want to know about it. Maybe they […]
If Google bought Twitter, they could start adding some of the Wave features into it. I’d like to see this. Wave beta was a mess of features, not really a product. It was more of a grand scale focus group than a launch. The Google creators sat behind the glass and watched us as we publicly brainstormed how their […]
