    • Social Networks, Generally Speaking... ❖ “How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live,” by Steve Johnson, Time, June 2009. “Social networks are notoriously vulnerable to the fickle tastes of teens and 20-somethings (remember Friendster?), so it's entirely possible that three or four years from now, we'll have moved on to some Twitter successor. But the key elements of the Twitter platform — the follower structure, link-sharing, real-time searching — will persevere regardless of Twitter's fortunes, just as Web conventions like links, posts and feeds have endured over the past decade.” Friday, July 31, 2009
