My Faves for Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Andrew Chen points out how quickly things have changed at MySpace. The big question is "Are You a Platform?" There are many examples out there where companies think they are an application but in fact they are a platform.

The challenge then becomes how you can encourage developers and still maintain a business model that is financially viable.

This will be the big challenge for Twitter. They know they are a platform and encourage development around their platform. But how will they monetize their service without alienating users or developers. That is their big quesiton.
