    [Data, Research] Less Informed Analysts Don't Serve the Public Good
    Is the eventual goal to eliminate any real research and intelligence used in the community to level the playing field and make the professional analyst game one that more heavily relies on a gut feel and chart reading? This would make the already imperfect industry one further removed from real data. Anybody can count numbers after they have been released, but few have proven true abilities to accurately guess a company's direction - and provide real data to customers who don't exactly do this for a living. Neither is an exact science. This just will make it worse.

    [Data, Research] The Argument for Embedding of Content into Twitter
    It occurred to me that perhaps Twitter should be doing the reverse and allowing its users to embed content into tweets. The reason I believe this is important is that Twitter is a place of links away from its site, people use desktop clients to access it, they use mobile apps, most of which aren’t owned or managed by Twitter. Therefore, infact over time does Twitter become a non-entity, simple a technology that is used to communicate rather than a destination for conversation and content. It seems a smart move to me.
