What do you think of Wonga? People seem wildly divided, but I can't make my mind up either way.

Here +Loic Le Meur tells me that he's running LeWeb London because British prime minister David Cameron 'made him an offer he couldn't refuse'.
Reports of a horse's head in the Frenchman's bed are currently being investigated:

I love this so much that I wrote about it: A clever chap called Martin O'Reilly used some number crunching to build a model of who would win Eurovision. He was right... but the citizens of Malta got a little miffed when they didn't finish as well as predicted.

This is crazy. Not content with copying everyone's ideas, Rocket Internet's latest venture -- a Nigerian copy of Zappos -- was hastily taken down after it turned out the code was lifted directly from Fab.com!

What's happening with Facebook and Lightbox? The London-based team behind the photo-sharing app has been bought by Facebook, but it seems that users and investors may be left out in the cold.

Is Free Mobile's rapid acceleration proof that it's possible for a business -- even one in a market as competitive as mobile -- to go from zero to 60 pretty quickly, if it's interesting?

With the Facebook IPO just a few days away, I think people buying shares -- and Silicon Valley in general -- should be sending a letter of thanks to Russian investor Yuri Milner.

If you're a European broadband addict, where should you live?
Romania might not be the place that comes to mind, but perhaps you should take another look -- it's right up there with the Netherlands and Sweden in terms of broadband capability.

Just-Eat has raised another $64m for further expansion. They're likely to buy up more rival companies and expand into new countries.
Anyone use it regularly? (I don't)

Vodafone is buying Cable & Wireless for £1bn -- but look at how much C&WW boss Gavin Darby (a former Vodafone executive who joined the company just a few months ago) is going to make from the deal. He's probably not even going to stick around once the deal goes through.
Is this just good business? Or is it profiteering?

I wrote a piece for the Times (of London) about the bizarre time I interviewed Steve Jobs. I thought it would be worth trying to write something about him that gave a different perspective than the rest of the coverage I've read over the last few days. Overall, it perhaps says as much -- or more -- about me as him. But I thought you might want to take a look anyway.
If you want to pay for access, you can read it here: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/technology/article3146881.ece Otherwise, here's the original draft. It runs to about 2,000 words, so prepare yourself!
IT'S THE SITUATION that millions of technology devotees would give everything to find themselves in: sitting in a room opposite Steve Jobs, with the chance to engage him in an ordinary conversation. Except, of course, that whatever happened the conversation would never be classed as ordinary --... more »

Apology to Twitter.
Chris Sacca, investor in Twitter, has blasted me on Twitter, saying I need to stop writing falsehoods about Twitter. Here's some of his Tweets:
https://twitter.com/#!/sacca/status/104957769383284736 @Scobleizer Maybe someday you'll do some actual research.@stevej&@robey still work at Twitter and @jeremy left in '09.
https://twitter.com/#!/sacca/status/104958409639608320 @Scobleizer You're in such a rush to be negative these days that you can't be bothered to write actual facts.
https://twitter.com/#!/sacca/status/104960152448409600 @Scobleizer If you have any integrity, you'll Tweet a correction, amend your G+ echo chamber post, and stop pretending you have "sources".

I know The Scream is Norway's best known work of art but mass murder seems more than a little inappropriate for parody by The Sunday Times. Do you agree?

Are Europe's accelerators speeding out of control?
Here's a story trying to start a discussion about the current explosion of startup accelerators and bootcamps across Europe. Are we seeing too many low-rent clones that mistake the model for the magic?
I've had private conversations with a number of investors, entrepreneurs and executives who are worried about the potential damage this might cause. But is this really a problem? Will the ship correct its course? And is it a European issue, or a wider one?

Two of the main ways in which I organise my circles: where people live and where people work. Why doesn't Google know this stuff? Or is Google betting that lots of people are going to do this, and are simply using us to organise the world's information for it?

Does anybody use Basecamp for journalistic/writing projects and organisation? Any tips or tricks on ways to use it?

Help me G+, you're my only hope...
Is there a way to move people from one circle, en masse, into another circle? I want to combine two circles together, basically.

Here's a piece by me at GigaOM arguing that the whole question of whether social media can start a revolution doesn't matter any more... because everyone in a position of power treats it as if it does.

Ugh. I can't actually describe quite how disgusting this is. The NOTW should be really, really ashamed.

When Google+ suggested that I follow Larry Page. Then when I added him to a circle, it said Larry Page wasn't on Google+! What gives?
