[Twitter] 4 Things We Expect to See from Digg in 2012
Twitter, Reddit, and others are able to deliver breaking news quickly. This is going to be a make or break year for Digg.com. After the debacle of 2010′s V4 launch , many in the industry thought that the site would die a quick death in 2011. As the year comes to a close, Digg is far from dead and is poised for a rebound in 2012. Here’s what we expect (hope) to see from the social news giant: Nothing else will have any meaning if Digg doesn’t turn a profit by the middle of the year. They will need to get more and bigger clients to take advantage of it to get there.

[Twitter] We Should be Teaching Students How to Blog
Posts are shared on Facebook and Twitter, and students learn to take pride in their work. Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It flattens hierarchy and empowers those with big ideas and hustle to get their message out to the masses. Young people today have an incredible opportunity that is the envy of many big thinkers that came before them. They have a medium in which to share their ideas and passions with the world quicker, cheaper and further reaching than ever before. They can blog. We need to teach young people how to blog. Here are a few lessons I learned from this experience.

M usicians do some crazy stuff. For example, they sit in a room, alone, and play scales: long sequences of notes — up and down, for hours. And they never enjoy it. Anyone who has lived with (or next door to) a musician can attest that these dreaded scales are not songs. They aren’t melodic, interesting, or even pretty. They’re just… scales. 1 Why would musicians do this? Lots of reasons, but here are three big ones: Scales make a great warm-up. Scales build good technique (aka, “chops”). Scales show up in actual music, ALL the time. Yet, they keep going back to scales.
