    platform Here s a few arguments why entrepreneurship around open source platforms should be encouraged Innovation Requires Time Effort and often Capital Let s be real there aren t many people who are willing to take on complex problems for the fun of it It s not a question of coding for coding s sake either it s that most people just don t have the time energy or resources to justify starting even if they can see a clear solution to a well defined problem The opportunity cost associated with diving in is often too great The opportunity to profit from an idea or solution however can create a powerful incentive that shifts priorities enough to turn someone who may have never started into an innovating entrepreneur Innovators Respond Well To Social Incentives Sure entrepreneurs are driven to innovate because of monetary incentives but that s not the whole story Social status power connectedness and pride play a large part in the innovating process Income generation is often just the spark that starts the creative flame but once a project is in motion other incentives provide a lot of the fuel that keeps things moving Successful entrepreneurs know that they re not going to just release code off into a vacuum In today s hyper connected world communities form around innovative code especially if it solves a common problem or need well The word gets out traffic increases communities form and innovators can become celebrities sometimes overnight Even at a basic level the popularity that ensues creates a sense of achievement and recognition that all human beings strive for The desire for status and connectedness can be a powerful incentive that not only pushes digital entrepreneurs towards great code around platforms and products but drives community building and overall

Category Technology Solving Information Overload With Good Design Why Dashboards Will Be The Next Big Thing For Feeds Lately I ve been feeling overwhelmed with information so I ve started taking steps to trim some of the fat from my info diet Along with reducing the number of people I follow on Twitter and using Facebook s new feed features to help focus my news to people I care most about I ve also made one significant change in my feed reading habits by making a switch from my traditional feed reader to iGoogle s new widgetized interface Here s why the new features in iGoogle rock my world Finally A Dashboard That I Can Scan I probably track around 100 blogs in my RSS reader and by most measures I think that s a modeset number Do I read every post from all of those blogs Of course not Nobody has that kind of time Like everyone else I ve got 15 20 favorites that I track actively and the rest get lumped into the You Have 687 unread posts category Still with a traditional RSS feed reader I ve had to dig through my feeds on the left expand them and scroll through posts No More Now I use iGoogle s dashboard as my browser s homepage to keep up with my favorite blogs RSS feeds friends email facebook all of it I now spend a fraction of the time reading that I did a week ago Everything you add to iGoogle shows up as a draggable widget so you can design your own layout organize your stuff into tabs and it s all right there on your home page The dashboard design makes keeping up a heckofa lot easier because it makes the content scannable FINALLY I won t bore you with all the details of how to set it up because it s a snap and besides a picture s worth a thousand words Here s my current iGoogle home page iGoogle Dashboard Widgets Add Extra Value For Social Networking While adding tabs on my iGoogle Dashboard the other day I stumbled on an awesome new feature I created a tab called Friends and it automatically populated the tab with Facebook functionality GoogleChat and Gmail widgets I even added a twitter gadget It s nice to know that the good folks at Google are accurately anticipating their users wants and needs Here s another 1000 word screenshot How useful is this The fact that Google is figuring out that people need a good agreggation service for all their feeds beyond just RSS readers is awesome and I think the new iGoogle interface is an indicator of changes to come with how feeds are organized and presented Here are some final thoughts Design Makes A Difference To How People Consume Information I m a big believer in the idea that design shapes behavior The fact that design impacts reading behavior is the reason that magazines and newspapers invest so heavily in layout typography and graphic design This is a no brainer right I know I m not saying anything innovative here so why haven t companies like FriendFeed and NewsGator innovated with the design of their layout to improve readability It s all so linear Linear design is fine and even elegant until you start pulling a lot of different types of content into one stream FriendFeed in particular has gotten so useless to me that I don t even bother with it anymore Tweets photos bookmarks comments it s all there in one big no context pile that you have to sort through I quit trying a while ago because it s just too overwhelming I know I m not alone in this Why doesn t every profile have a dashboard of all their stuff sparated out for readability It s all coming in separately so why lump it all together ina

    At Web 2 0 Expo I recently spent a week at the Web 2 0 Expo in San Francisco CA I had a ball There s something dare I say Worldchanging about the O Reilly events this year There s a sense of community shared responsibility and agency in the air It s one thing to be social in the blogosphere and participate in online communities but it s quite another to be physically present among this many smart people clustered together sharing their data ideas and experiences Over the course of the week I saw a number of presentations that echoed common ideas about what s going on right now and what forces the major players are responding to Here are 5 of the most noteworthy trends Local Is The New Global Consumers are increasingly taking a look at their lives through a local lens and using the web as an information resource to improve their offline experiences and purchasing power The emergence of mobile phones as computer devices i e GPS enabled iPhones etc lines are blurring the lines between online offerings and on the go real world ones Geolocation services on mobile devices as well as off
