These are my Delicious links for May 19th through May 23rd:
- Secret of Googlenomics: Data-Fueled Recipe Brews Profitability – Purportedly a story on the role of Hal Varian, Google's chief economist, I found most interesting the history of how the AdWords bidding process was developed.
- Constructive Capitalism – Umair Haque – Daytona Sessions vol. 2 – A very in-depth (and thus long) talk by Umair Haque on the transition from 20th Century economics to 21th Century economics, which he calls Constructive Capitalism. He makes a lot of the same points as in his BRITE talk, but arguably less concisely.
- Where culinary dreams take shape, batch by batch – Los Angeles Times – A really cool concept of specialty food incubators, essentially commercial kitchen space for rent hourly. I wonder if something similar could be done as a restaurant with different chefs being able to rent out specific meals to do a part-time restaurant.
- Crimes suspected in 20 bailout cases — for starters – Los Angeles Times – The official charged with monitoring the bailout program says it lacks transparency and is very susceptible to fraud and abuse by participants.
- The Life and Times of A Twitter Link :: Blog :: Fuel Interactive – Based on anecdotal empirical testing, the average useful lifespan of a link shared on Twitter is only ~5 min.
- ConvoTrack – A bookmarklet (or embeddable script) for showing you all the conversations happening about a given page across the web (powered by BackType Connect).
