My latest monthly essay, which outlines why I think Twitter's follow model is broken - and what you (and Twitter) can do about it.

In a couple of weeks I’ll be launching a new weekly newsletter for 2016. It will explore Internet products and trends, much like I did with ReadWriteWeb from 2003-2012. In the meantime, I thought I’d do some ‘thinking out loud’ writing on my personal blog.

My latest essay is on the theme of geographic isolation. It was inspired by a reception held by the US Ambassador to NZ, Mark Gilbert. I hope entrepreneurs from NZ, or anywhere else far away from Silicon Valley, find it useful.

I was at a reception last week at the home of the US Ambassador to New Zealand, Mark Gilbert. The event was in celebration of innovation in New Zealand. "We share an ocean," joked Ambassador Gilber...
