Reading Links for March 9th

Daily update on del.icio.us links with my notes. I also just tweet links @stuarthenshall

  • 8 Things Your Phone Will (Probably) Replace | many cases already has….more important to look beyond these examples too cliche. – I like the 8 examples although many users have already begun integrating many of these into their lives. Money as in wallet and video conferencing projectors are not here yet. Money is a huge deal. Still I'd like to see more re health and services in these examples. There's also many expectations that the majority of users won't know or understand yet. Eg print from mobile. Many mobiles can, it's just the printer technology is not broadly spread enough yet. There are other products that don't get mentioned. DId I say "radio"? for example? Pandora re-invents radio…. in fact "mobile music" reinvents speakers… parties etc. We should be careful "lists" don't gloss over the changes in real behavior. Re directions… or reading the paper, music sharing, social gaming, travel management, etc.
  • Hardware Becomes Software | nice set of picture examples from guitar tuner to remotes
  • Job Search, Version 3.0 | Better tools exist even on Twitter than just tweeting off a search to find that job. – An observation. This tweet doesn't provide enough detail beyond the curiosity of who is asking for a job. The obvious value-added method is to provide a "link" although sending them outside Twitter doesn't really help much. So the question is… how do you keep the exchange escalating within Twitter? How do you provide the additional information and an easy channel to further discussion without all the "follow" – "email" – "phone" etc? <br />
    <br />
    The second issue is how do you find the leads you want? You require a notification service. Timely leads may or may not lead to a more effective conversation. It will communicate that you understand the medium that you are using. <br />
    <br />
    This person's strategy was a fail as they had no way to share the CV / resume as part of their Tweet and retain communication inside Twitter. There's also no opportunity for references or otherwise while the twitter profile lacks the development of time. <br />
    <br />
    Job's 3.0 or 2.0 or whatever it is called is coming to Twitter.
