  1. Instagram as an island economy (11 Apr., 2012, at Interconnected)

    The same with Matt Webb’s thoughts on Lanchester’s piece. Belatedly adding it to my link memory.

    Just realised I never Pinboarded this at the time, only wrote about it. For completion’s sake.

  3. Ian Bogost - What should we do for a living?

    An interesting addition to that stuff about the value of Instagram etc coming from the activity of its users (or not): Do those users only have time for this activity because of the “leisure time bought by jobs in the non-Internet economy”?

    Just left a bunch of eBay feedback on past sales. Anyone need any feedback while I’m in the flow?
