The Million Twitter Matrix: Starring Oprah and Ashton Kutcher [Matrices]

Well in the midst of all the hubbub in Williamsburg another huge internet sensation, Twitter, took some major steps this week: Twitaholic Ashton Kutcher hit a million followers . And now, Oprah's on board . Matrix time! Last weekend's Morality Matrix was premised around the David Brook Philosophy 101 column about re-assessing moral value . This week we look at trendy micro-blogging platform, Twitter. Oprah Winfrey and Ashton Kutcher will serve as our polarizing avatars of highbrow and lowbrow. And we know within the democratized media-masses there's a thin line between the brilliance of sharing and the nausea of TMI-overshare. With those ground rules established we scatter-graphed some of this week's news to see what tweets and what twats. Matrix design expertise provided by: Jeff Meininger Published by Original source :

Welcome to WTAN On the Weekend: Bathing the Grifter Story Like a Baby In the Sink [The Weekend]

By my cursory count the story of The Hipster Grifter , has generated over 250,000 page views, and well over 1000 comments. But, there's more! But I want to make this weekend spot a place of sanctuary from the normal rigorous cut-throat business that goes on, as it must, during the week. So we're digging into this story more, but with a sympathetic edge that ultimately, I hope, brings a smile to Kari's face (we know you're watching!). So coming up we have a panel that will feature Vice mag co-founder Gavin McInnes weighing in on the saga. Along with Doree (!!), and a book editor discussing the potential merits of a book deal. Also my video report from Williamsburg, where we met people who interacted with Kari! I'm behind schedule though, gotta run. Stay tuned!!! Published by Original source :
