Some things worth reading that I don’t have time to do more than a drive-by on:
- An engineer’s eye inside view of Google: Somehow the place seem both bureaucratic and disorganized.
- The May Comscore data is out on traffic to top web properties: YouTube nearly doubled its traffic month-over-month; social networks rule; and funky new fast-growers like TopTVBytes and BigFishGames.
- Online advertising and audience targeting company SpecificMEDIA (its Retargeting.com business is also interesting) gets funding from Enterprise Partners.
- Graffiti handwriting recognition technology continues to drive patent litigation.
