Bill Thompson has posted a thoughtful article over at the BBC about the changes that social networking is making to our standards of social interaction. He discusses his own tweeting and live-blogging at conferences, and then talks about the news updates that were tweeted by Tearah Moore during the Fort Hood incident.
Here are some more financial blogs that seem good:
- The Aleph Blog – Investment strategies and advice (seems pretty US-centric)
- The Epicurean Deal Maker – Sarchastic, sardonic and humerous insight into Wall Street
- Going Private – The Sardonic Memoirs of a Private Equity Professional – This is an absolutely hilarious blog about the world of Private Equity. Excellent!
- A Fist-full of Euros – An interesting blog focusing on European finance/economics/politics.
