The desire to punish seems to be tied to a desire to level the playing field. "Human punishment is motivated by inequity aversion, not a desire for reciprocity" http://rsbl.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/early/2012/07/06/rsbl.2012.0470.full?sid=77326d0c-26f8-46d0-80fd-bd87c2d7d1c8

Twitter launches targeted tweets. I can almost hear industry's reaction via the hadoop clusters spinning up. http://advertising.twitter.com/2012/07/new-targeting-adds-greater-relevance-to.html

I may not be a planet, but check out my fifth moon, fools! http://bit.ly/OzwoRt

A good all 'round tour of WP SocialReader
Robert Scoble originally shared:
 
Wow. I +love+ this new "social reader" from Washington Post.

+Don Graham, chairman of the Washington Post company (damn smart guy who has seen a TON in the publishing world) and I talk about this.

We talk about porn, too. "I wouldn't use this app for that," he says.

Really interesting insights into why these IDENTITY ENGINES are going to change everything.

And if you think that Google won't do this I have a nice bridge to sell you in San Francisco (Google is working on a new reader like this code-named "Propeller.")

You gotta be on Facebook to try this out: https://apps.facebook.com/wpsocialreader/
