Social Networks are among the most powerful examples of socialized media. They create a dynamic ecosystem that incubates and nurtures relationships between people and the content they create and share.

BackType Connects the Conversation Graph

I’m a strong supporter of BackType and the work of Christopher Golda since the debut of the highly valuable comments search engine last September.

Basically Miles created a color palatte or swatch if you will that breaks out varying levels of colors by Web 2.0 companies. It’s almost like fusing Web 2.0 with Pantone. Now SwissMiss revisited the story.

While I’m here at DEMOfall, I missed the Revision3 launch party. Scott Beale captured the event, and by looking at his pictures, I absolutely wish I could have been in two places at once.
