At the end of November, I published a Dear Abby-esque post on Plaxo Pulse.  In it, my friend, Paul emailed me to get my opinion on Plaxo Pulse, and I didn’t have many (okay, ANY) positive things to say about it.  So, it was with great amusement that I read Michael Arrington’s post on TechCrunch […]

Today in Boomtown, Kara Swisher talks about a management shuffle at Facebook.  Among the apparent changes is the move of Owen Van Natta from COO to chief revenue officer and vice president of operations.  Swisher elaborates saying: Van Natta now shares power–how uneasily it remains to be seen–with newly installed Vice President of Marketing and […]
