Macworld: As I mentioned yesterday, time to kick the cloud.

Google’s Gmail fail casts dark cloud on cloud computing.  Hard drive failures, system bugaboos, etc. still make the cloud attractive. Unless you absolutely must have failsafe apps ... in that case, I wish you a case of Maalox and a hearty ‘good luck.’

PR 2.0:  Distraction, or benefit?

Does Social Networking Impair Learning? “People who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information do not pay attention, control their memory or switch from one job to another as well as those who prefer to complete one task at a time.”  I worried that the study might not have been generationally relevant, but they did use students.

Think Twice: That Facebook Update Could Get You Robbed. This is old news in the blogging world; I think a lot of folks don’t believe this really happens - or simply won’t happen to them.  Best to be a little vague about your plans.  I write in retrospect, *after* travel.  Why invite burglars?

Washington Post:  Scammers have a system.

European Cyber-Gangs Target Small U.S. Firms, Group Says “They send a targeted e-mail to the company’s controller or treasurer, a message that contains either a virus-laden attachment or a link that — when opened — surreptitiously installs malicious software designed to steal passwords. Armed with those credentials, the crooks then initiate a series of wire transfers, usually in increments of less than $10,000 to avoid banks’ anti-money-laundering reporting requirements.”

myInkBlog: There are no ‘social media experts.’

Social Media Expertise – Designing the Myth. “To master social media, a massive network for communication, one has to be able to communicate and interact effectively via these various outlets. But since communication is an interactive, back and forth dialog, these power users are unable to effectively communicate with their massive number of interactees.”  Good points within.

ReadWriteWeb:  No more moody, isolated teens?

Your “Real” Friends are Your Online Friends (or so Says Gen Y). “What’s interesting, though, is how social networking is having an impact on this traditional coming-of-age process. Instead of simply feeling disjointed, confused, and lonely, today’s younger generation has an outlet for connecting with their peers which previous generations did not: the internet.”

CNET: Learn COBOL, you twit.

Forget Twitter. COBOL is where it’s at. “All the hipsters in Silicon Valley talk about PHP, Twitter, and Web 2.0. But recent surveys show that kids can’t be bothered to use Twitter.  Meanwhile, COBOL, one of the industry’s oldest programming languages, still ‘equates to 80 percent of the world’s actively used code,’ according to Stephen Kelley of Micro Focus.”  And here I’ve been poo-pooing COBOL all this time.

CNET News:  Flickr needs a redesign.

How Flickr needs to change. “I use and enjoy Flickr. But with each passing month it worries me more that when I visit a photo page on the Yahoo photo-sharing site, it looks essentially identical to when I first started using it four years ago.”  More personalization would be a good thing (change background colors, etc. etc.).
