Retweeted by Om MalikWould be interesting compare money earned by governments from licenses-tax regime vs taxes from "networked markets" https://t.co/Kio95wkf6A@etherealmind @TheStalwart thanks 👊🏻.@aral @monkchips these are essentially scaled models of what @JamesCurrier calls "market networks" & I see as "networked marketplaces"@aral Sure, but waiting for it to emerge/work at scale. Current scaled models aren't sharing economy by even farthest stretch of imaginationRepeat after me: there is no such thing as "sharing economy" try instead "on demand" or "instant gratification" https://t.co/tmwLxA8U6O@rosmiquel read the full interview and get the context - it explains his thinking clearly.@pjozefak he is an economist. They are an odd lot :)@pjozefak I think the broader point he is making is interesting.

Dear Bitcoiners, I know you're excited, but this Greece thing is not all about you.
Retweeted by Om Malik@davidfano @daveg also frank G doesn't mean functional and useful. Funky yes. Fashionable, maybe be. But that's just me.@daveg but that is for big tech companies that have no idea how to •spend• their mountains of cash. No one has accused them of good taste!Hard to believe Yanks are on 90-win pace. Though lots of ifs remain, compelling argument can be made for Girardi's best managerial job yet.

Retweeted by Om Malik@amandapey it has been made multiple times and have read it multiple times. Which isn't to distract from your point/reasonsIn other words this is a polar opposite argument made to oppose other arguments about tech. https://t.co/9H8AIjyQwLI am looking for new thoughts. It is a rehash of lot of old arguments, previously made, without logic & facts. https://t.co/9H8AIjyQwLThis is one muddled piece & sums up traditional media industry issues: they don't know what they are! https://t.co/qqAx9nyAEU
