Normally we don’t repost press releases but you know – we are doing all sorts of new thing lately as you all know. But we wanted to give a shout out Digital Hollywood’s upcoming Building Blocks conference which is chock full of really good ideas – it’s a real gathering for journalists and industry execs and experts to discuss – not pretend discuss, but discuss issues, question current thinking, question each other, examine what is working and what isn’t and look into trends in the IPTV connectivity space. We attended a few (as bloggers!) and they are really worth the time and money. These guys know what they are doing – and definately encourage OPINIONS from everyone! It feels like the old days here – where people actually want to learn from each other not just hear the big guys bang on about innovation.
Another company entering the unstoppable blogging market — Kaalga.com which makes contextual suggestions to a blog based on what you are typing. Very cool -still in its beginning stages but on the right path. Much like Zemanta.com blends images, news stories around the internet and historical references to your entries — issues like content rights still exist – but harvesting the information out on the Internet is going to be big business. Like Kimia — the Spanish company who is doing this for the mobile phone — watch the space – it will explode. Talking to a London-based VC about this growth market, we were told that Mobile didn’t mature like people thought it would but now, the innovation dollars will pour into this space because now its seen as a sector that has its collective thought process together in terms of revenue models and operators can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So yesterday, the ACLU posted a great entry on their blog about free speech you all know why this is a relevant topic at the moment. Actually the whole blog is about freedom based issues -why? Cause freedom/free speech can’t blog itself.
Another great issue – just write a book about your issues.
