newsflash: google buys jaiku
Jaiku, the Finnish microblogging site was just bought by Google. The full story is here.
Jaiku was founded by Jyri Engestrom, the anthropologist who turned me on to the "Social Object" idea.
Big congrats to Jyri and his team!

Hi Hugh, can we get this Picture for a conference presentation from nils?
Go ahead and use it, Anna, no worries. Thanks for asking :)
Last I checked, Jyri was currently getting his PhD in Anthropology. No worries, the truth will out eventually etc.
I still can´t get over the fact Scoble mentions on his blog: Orkut receives more page views per day than any other Google service!!! wtf???
