Pilgrim’s Picks for July 14th



If you’re a fan of the "just give me the links" format of Pilgrim’s Picks, you may want to follow my Twitter updates. I share a lot of stuff that is exclusive to my 2,850 Tweeps.

In the meantime…

  • Speaking of Twitter. It seems Republicans and Democrats are using Twitter to argue over new proposals that could limit legislators social media activity.
  • Viacom doesn’t want to know if you’ve uploaded copyright content. It just wants to know if Google employees did–that might jeopardize Google’s safe harbor defense.
  • An interesting legal case in Britain. Newspapers are being sued for publishing false information, lifted from a Bebo profile page.
  • Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has personally invested money in a new social gaming network start-up called, imaginatively, Social Gaming Network.
  • Internet TV site Veoh is bringing its behavioral targeting advertising program out of beta today.

    We love the term “Tweeps”…never heard of it! Loving the story of the Dems and Republicans fighting via Twitter — classic. Surprised that it seems the Democrats are being a bit more restrictive with the social media… interesting!

    The Democrats and Republicans are only arguing without any basis at times.
