CobWEBs Daily Edition podcast: Is Twitter’s light shining too brightly too soon?

cbn1podpost.pngThis is what you get folks when you don’t pay attention to our blackmail request for bribes donations not to talk about Twitter – a whole show about Twitter and social media.

In tonight’s show Sean and myself talk about the ecosystem around Twitter, from the retweet system to whether or not its API should be public domain. As well we look at the fact that at this point in time Twitter has no way to earn the kind of money to justify its current valuation. Plus Sean suggests that Twitter won’t exist even 20 years from now unlike older internet protocols like IRC, NNTP and IM.
