The Gillmor Gang —,Facebook CTO Bret Taylor, Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, and Steve Gillmor. Recorded live Friday, August 6, 2010.
Google Buzz, only a week old, is gaining a lot of visibility, and is seen as Google’s most direct attack against social upstarts Facebook and Twitter. Some really like it. Others are up in arms about perceived privacy violations. Louis Gray and Chris Saad discuss whether Buzz’s clear mimicry of FriendFeed and other existing sites missed a new opportunity to innovate – and become a true social network aggregation tool, including aggregation of gestures. Did Google make a mistake, and not really invent anything new with Buzz, making it immediately an also-ran?
Companies discussed include: Google, Google Buzz, GMail, Google Reader, FriendFeed, Facebook, my6sense, ReadBurner and Seesmic.
