Second, the democratization of the News Business from Chris Peck at
  • News will be generated by the people who are chosen, not the chosen people.
  • News will be more a conversation about making sense of the world, less of a sermon from on high.
  • News will rely on the wisdom of the many, not the insight of the few, with journalists being knowledge leaders.
  • News will be multilayered, from very personal accounts to highly evolved overviews by real pros.
  • News will be available anytime, from your phone, computer or new technologically advanced device.
  • News will be framed according to your social networks, your age and your tribe.

Skype open up free calls to all US & CA phone

Really a useful thing Skype and the Web give us this week. Any call from a PC to an ordinay phone or cellular are now free anywhere, -in and for-, United States and Canada.
Skype launch this yesterday but I was only able to use it today because they have some bugs with certains IP addresses starting with 69 to 73.

Even conference calls up to 4 peoples also work with that. Great !

Google to put hands on Olive Software ?

A rumor by the Mercury News SiliconBeat blog tell us that Google is negociating to buy Olive Software of Santa Clara. Seem full of sense when you look what products Olive have developped.

Theirs featured demos section is very informative about the technology involved. It's a great technology who pleased everybody. The embeded flash presentation give you the fealing of reading a real magazine and the XML treatment of the information is great for SE.

If that transaction go through we may be see a Google Catalog 2 ?
