From Tom’s Reading List

The Guardian: CVS doesn’t need tobacco for its revenues: it has Obamacare — “It turns out that the timing however, is perfect. CVS doesn’t need tobacco for its revenues because a bigger source of business is on the horizon: Obamacare. And Obamacare is invested in pressuring smokers to quit by forcing them to pay more for healthcare.”

The Wall Street Journal:On Eve of Winter Games, Worries About Sochi Mount –”Athletes and others arriving in Sochi encountered what appears to be a strong security presence. As of late Wednesday no incidents had occurred. But hanging over these Games is a threat from terrorists. On Wednesday it emerged that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned airlines sending flights to Russia to look out for explosives hidden inside toothpaste tubes.”

 Bloomberg: Twitter’s Loss Exceeds Estimates as User Growth Slows –”There were 241 million monthly active users in the fourth quarter, Twitter said in a statement today, up 30 percent from 185 million a year earlier and slower than 39 percent seen in the prior period. Usage also declined, with 148 billion views of Twitter timelines compared with 159 billion views in the third quarter. Net loss was $511.5 million compared with $8.7 million a year earlier, and was more than double analysts’ projections of $253.5 million.”

Chloe Weil — Hipster

Chloe Weil is a hilarious person-who-makes-things. She has one cat. I built Twitter. For the past few months I’ve loosely talked about my intent to publish micro-content (a tweet) to my site and send a copy out to Twitter, as opposed to using Twitter directly. This publishing model goes by the acronym POSSE: Post to your Own Site and Syndicate Elsewhere. http://chloeweil.com/blog/hipster

Neil Gaiman’s Newest ‘Overture’

Norman Mailer called it “a comic strip for intellectuals.” Best-selling author Neil Gaiman joins us with his dark, new series on the origins of “The Sandman.”

Guest

Neil Gaiman, Best-selling author of the acclaimed graphic novel series, “The Sandman,” including the new prequel, “The Sandman: Overture.” Also author of “American Gods,” “Coraline,” “The Graveyard Book” and “The Ocean At the End of the Lane.” (@neilhimself)

From Tom’s Reading List

The New Republic: An Interview With Neil Gaiman, the Internet’s Favorite Fantasy Writer – “Gaiman is perhaps the world’s best-known fantasy writer. The internationally bestselling author of ‘Neverwhere,’ ‘Coraline,’ ‘American Gods,’ ‘Stardust’ and many other books, graphic novels and film adaptations is rich, famous and married to a rock star. He has millions of devoted fans who eat his every word like air. He has won every major award going for science fiction, fantasy, and children’s literature, including the Hugo, the Nebula, the Bram Stoker and the Locus, many times over. He spends most of his time flying around the world between homes and fancy hotels, being celebrated and signing an improbable number of books.”

Paste Magazine: ‘The Sandman: Overture’ by Neil Gaiman & J.H. Williams III — “I have absolutely no hesitation calling ‘The Sandman’ the best comic book ever written. I don’t consider it hyperbole or exaggeration: it’s a universal truth in my head, as unwavering as gravity or male pattern baldness. Other comics have certainly come close, but did ‘Watchmen,’ ‘Blankets,’ or ‘Maus’ deliver sublime graphic literature over seven years for 75 issues?”

The A.V. Club: Neil Gaiman’s classic comic-book series returns with ‘The Sandman: Overture #1′ – “Stories never really end, do they? Even after the final word on the page or the last shot on screen, stories live on in the imagination of the audience and, in more recent times, the limbo where narratives ferment until they’re ready for prequels and sequels. When Neil Gaiman ended ‘The Sandman’ in 1996, he emphasized the idea that these characters and this world would live on after the end of the series, and the nature of mainstream comic books ensured that Gaiman’s concepts would stick around for a while.”

#TwitterIPO: Your Tweets From Our Twitter Hour

Our Nov. 5 hour exploring the coming launch of social media giant Twitter’s Initial Public Offering (or IPO) asked you, our listeners and online followers, for input on what value you see in the service. We got a pretty broad range of responses.

Taking Stock Of Twitter’s IPO

Twitter’s big IPO – the buzz, the billions and assessing the value of an empire of tweets.

Seems like five minutes ago, Twitter was sort of a joke. This week, it’s a big IPO. A public stock offering on the New York Stock Exchange that will value Twitter at over $10 billion. The company with the funny name that introduced us all to tweets and hash tags and 140-character messages is riding a wave or a bubble, depending how you see it. Hoping to raise a lot of cash without taking the kind of dive Facebook did after its sky-high IPO. All the attention is lighting up social media and where it’s headed. Our always-on web life. Up next On Point: #TwitterIPO, and where Twitter takes us.

Jennifer Van Grove, social media reporter at CNet. (jbruin">@jbruin)

From Tom’s Reading List

Quartz: What Twitter’s IPO Means –  ”People will call it a bubble, but they’re generally talking finance, as in the reason Pinterest and Snapchat are now worth $4 billion apiece. What I see is a social bubble, the collective delusion that Twitter’s IPO is a celebratory event, even if you’re not one of the few actually holding a stake in the company.”

CNet: Boobs and banner ads: Twitter’s Facebook dilemma — “At their worst, Twitter ads now resemble banner ads. Yet instead of being relegated to the right-hand side of a Web page, the ads are popping up in the stream on desktop and mobile. The brand-appeal, however, is that a company can pay to promote a tweet to a wider audience and use the power of an in-line photograph to make a stronger impact. Take Victoria’s Secret, for instance, which recently ran a Promoted Tweet with an image of a scantily clad model whose boobs, which would have previously been hidden from view until a person clicked to view them, ran through the timelines of a wide-eyed audience.”

New York Times: Twitter Raises Price Range for Its I.P.O. – “But coming ahead of pricing for the company’s stock, the higher price range suggests Twitter is emboldened after the conclusion of its road show. Thanks to the strong demand for its stock, Twitter is planning to close the order books for its I.P.O. on Tuesday at noon, a day earlier than scheduled, according to people familiar with the matter. Twitter still plans to price on Wednesday and begin trading on Thursday.”

Gillmor Gang 10.04.13: IPOed

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — Sure, we talked about the Twitter IPO, about the Bitcoin Bust, about whether Apple is a hardware or software company, and other stuff. Looming in the background was the idea that our politics have atrophied yet more to complete decrepitude, that we could unring the bell of the election, that the collapse in Washington was nothing more than a preexisting condition. It’s a dullard’s version of Chicken, and no matter how far we slide, there’s still more to go. But luckily, we have hashtags and social graphs to keep us amused while the republic goes under in the slowest possible version of realtime. I’m glad Ev’s a billionaire so we can get Track reinstalled. Waiting for the electrician, anyone? @stevegillmor, @scobleizer, @kteare, @jtaschek, @kevinmarks Produced and directed by Tina Chase Gillmor @tinagillmor http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/05/gillmor-gang-ipoed/
