In my last speech on the changing media landscape I pointed out that the way news reaches me has changed.
“If the news is important, it will reach me.”
So if any news is really important to me – it will not have to search for it anymore, it will reach me via recommendations, links, emails, twitter etc.
This is turning the news-business around and it is the first step to a “Social Media News” Network.
Here is one example:
NASA announces water on Mars via Twitter. Social networking site redefining how the news reaches us.
Follow MarsPhoenix on Twitter.
When images of what had to be melting ice from the Mars Phoenix Lander told NASA that it had found what it was looking for, the first public pronouncement came not in an all-singing, all-dancing press conference, but through a plain old social networking website.
Those in the know won’t be surprised to hear that Twitter was the vehicle of choice for the geeks at the space agency, marking yet another PR coup for the simple, but addictive site.
Last night’s ebullient NASA tweet read: “Are you ready to celebrate? Well, get ready: We have ICE!!!!! Yes, ICE, *WATER ICE* on Mars! w00t!!! Best day ever!!”

It’s one of the most exciting tournaments of the summer.
The quarterfinals of Euro 2008 begin tomorrow. Of the 16 qualifiers, only eight will go on – and some powerhouses will be notably absent.
From now until June 29, we’ll add twice daily recaps and previews of these hotly contested matches from the UEFA.com Magazine.
If you just can’t get enough, or want to relive any of the action, you’ll be able to catch up on all the best football and more until the end of July.
Get your football fix now.
Twitter is growing 30.5% per month, soon attracting 2 million visitors per month.
You don’t know Twitter, yet.
Here is a very simply explanation of the system and why people use it…
How smart is your Website?
Now researchers at MIT’s Sloan School of Management hope to make websites better at selling products by making them adapt automatically to each visitor, presenting information in a way that complements that person’s style of thinking.
Morphing to fit the user: Based on a user’s pattern of clicks, the prototype website for British Telecom, shown above, changes to fit the user by making a guess at the user’s cognitive style. For example, after determining whether he or she thinks in holistic or analytic terms, the website adapts to a form that it deems most likely to sell products to that user.
The researchers’ initial studies show that morphing a website to suit different types of visitors could increase the site’s sales by about 20 percent. While quite a few sites, such as Amazon.com, offer personalized features, many of those sites adapt by drawing information from user profiles, stored cookies, or long questionnaires. The Sloan system, however, adapts to unknown users within the first few clicks on the website by analyzing each user’s pattern of clicks.

Yesterday I turned on my iPhone and I realized that the display is not working correct. I did many restarts and software checks. My result the screen has a dead zone of almost 2 cm. So I cannot type any eMails, short-messages, telefon-numbers nor tweets on twitter anymore. Oh no – bad news.
I bought the iPhone on the first day in New York and activated the phone right away with AT&T. After cancelling the AT&T contract I brought it to Germany and unlocked it. Apple has a global guarantee on all products they sell. But with the iPhone and the related telecommunication operator they have many restrictions and I can only use my guarantee if I go to an Apple Store in USA.
It is amazing what you can find out using the Serial-Number of the product.
For example my iPhone is the 32.129th iPhone ever made and it was produced in July 2007.
But now I have to figure out how to get it working again… Maybe I have to buy a new display here.
