Another example of using the Leica with slow black and white film:
Is Twitter playing the Microsoft card ---buy out a competing start up and stifle it thereafter until it died a natural but untimely death? Scepticemia puts it this way:
The developers might not close shop outright and instead close new registrations, while keeping the servers running for the existing users. However. they just let the system rot and not address the bugs that inevitably keep arising time and time again. Then, one day, something big goes wrong that requires a lot of resources in terms of money and manpower to fix and instead of fixing that, they go around closing shop, blaming it on the bug.
Twitter has a history of this --eg. Tweetdeck.
I will close this blog. It has done its job. Its the material on the books that I'm working on that represent the problem. Where to shift that material?
