never really checked but
should look into chrome extension when my notebook come back to life.
these look pretty good.
so glad others s work hard on getting these best of threads on all sort of subject.. however, not sure if it is sustainable culture..
This is a much more balanced piece, definitely much better than the Mark Lyna's piece that mentioned mainly China crashed the party...
It is how the free press should really be used. balanced and aim to inform.

CDFIs are independent organisations which provide loans and support to businesses and individuals. They help people who have had trouble getting finance from the usual sources such as banks and building societies. They are helping to create opportunity and prosperity in disadvantaged communities. As the trade association for CDFIs, the cdfa's mission is to grow, support and strengthen the sector.
Back our campaign for the Government, banks and other stakeholders to boost their support of CDFIs: www.moneyforchange.org.uk

Interesting update. I would like to clarify one thing: "Even though SMS text messages are only 160 characters and cost your cellphone carrier virtually nothing to transmit" in fact, reality is not that simple.

Well, surely it would only be illegal if they were
1.) breaching the Chinese wall (SOX)
2.) sharing price/info sensitive information
So, yes,special treatments to the in-crowd or special relationship club is quite normal, esp. big business.
The reverse is also true where if the information is readily available, the spread/competitive advantage just get 'normalised'.
Question is if this is sustainable in the medium to long term when critical information become commoditised and with potentially news/market changing events are 'consumers' or 'customers' driven.
For example, if/when social media becomes pervasive enough where collective of opinions affects dramatically the business world, and hence becomes the money sensitive triggers.. (Reverse signalling?)
I can foresee more new names to be devised when that happens, and perfect for business book writers..

Gareth's thoughts: Truly pervasive B2C info.service, NOT from Internet! but a 26yrs old French company!?
I have had many conversations in the last week or so with my CXO contacts and Private equity friends.
One thing was certain Hypes or even perceived success does not equal to 'true success' of the enterprise.
My definition of success is how much a service brings true value to the population (rather than niche early adopters or generation X/Y/Z, or ABC1)..
Therefore, I proposed that we should really focus energy on devising and bringing about a truly pervasive service (from access, to payment, to value delivered), in fact, we can learn from a very old service which was devised and delivered to a country BEFORE the arrival of internet.
In fact, this service is so pervasive that now even with the advent of internet, even the older generations (who might not yet use mobile nor internet) can engage with this platform at home or outside in the post office for both information or even transact..
Yes, it is the Minitel .com : services in France..
It does not look good, it is not sexy or on Techcrunch. but it gets the job done.
It might not have happened without the foresight and support from the government, but given the amount of money some of the start-ups is being invested in BEFORE even taking any revenue.. Surely some lessons can be learnt.
If old grannies know how to and can get benefit of say twitting.. the rest is really history!
