- Always active Online Journalism blog has an interesting piece about when Twitter came to the surface When did you first hear about Twitter?
- Back to basics – lots of useful links and winks How to get started in social media
- iGov – How geeks are opening up the government on the web, article in the Atlantic.
- Much has already been said about the free music player Spotify (which I love), Jan Omdahl has a nice piece in Dagbladet (Norwegian) here. I got my invitation through some superkind Twitterfriends.
- Thomas F. Anglero aka Wihood has been awarded one of the most successful immigrants in Norway. Congratulation!
