Facebook, the next Myspace

April 21, 2009

It’s official, facebook is a dead property. I recently got my facebook account disabled. It turns out I’m in good company (Guy Kawasaki and others). Not that I’m bitter that my account got disabled, but it is not a good sign of things to come. When your mom is on facebook, you know that it is no longer cool. Twitter is what’s cool now. It has shot up in popularity without a good revenue model. Everyone used to be on Myspace and that was the problem, because of all the teeny boppers. Have you tried to read any comments on youtube?

False positives hurt the user experience. Once you ruin that experience the illusion is gone. RIP facebook.


Tax and IRA Reminder

April 10, 2009

On this Good Friday, let me remind everybody that it is not too late to make an IRA contribution to 2008. The deadline is April 15, so if you find that you will be getting a nice tax refund, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to contribute to an IRA account. Plus stock prices are on the rise.

Happy investing.
