« From this week's NMK PR Debate - the innovation land grab | Main | How Time magazine was manipulated by the 4chan swarm »

April 25, 2009


Perhaps worth noting that moot aka Christopher Poole, the founder of 4chan has just be named the World's Most Influential Person by Time magazine in their annual poll internet poll http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1894028,00.html
Not passing comment on the site or how much credence to put on the poll - just noting its potential significance.

Hi Adam - As I understand it, this is another example of how 4chan's community can manifest itself. The swarm managed to manipulate all of the first 21 results in the Time poll: http://is.gd/v0UN

Impressive power!

Interesting list and always good to see some debate on a blog. I hadn't come accross a couple of these before but will investigate them further.

Am curious, to see no mention of Social Median, as an alternative RSS Reader. Have you tried it out? Also, have you taken a look at Gist?

Agree with you on Evernote ;)
Thanks for sharing
