Being Liked by Scoble Isn’t a Business Model

Posted by Melanie Phung on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at 10:45 am

In lieu of actually writing original content, I’ll continue just posting clever things other people write and hope it’ll be enough to make you believe I’m still “maintaining” this blog 🙂

This week’s quote of the week:

If you are a Web 2.0 company in today’s Web you really need to ask yourselves, “Are we solving a problem that everybody has or are we building a product for Robert Scoble?”

Words of wisdom from a Microsoft Program Manager and, according to Wikipedia, son of Nigeria’s former president. Related to the issue whether Web 2.0 apps have practical application and what Robert Scoble thinks, check out this post by Bob Bly called What’s Wrong with Social Networking Junkies.

I’ll try to come up with some words of wisdom of my own at some point soon. In the meantime, please discuss amongst yourselves.

This probably doesn’t rise to the level of “quote of the week” but it was pretty funny. Hat tip to Let Teddy Win for pointing out the opening paragraph of InternetRetailer.com’s article on duplicate content:

Search engine web crawlers constantly check for new content to index on web sites, which can affect a siteā€™s ranking in natural search results. Thus, it pays to ensure that sites are presenting crawlers with new and unduplicated information, experts say.
