Facebook has launched a new feature that lets users save items they find on Facebook, for later. Yes, like, Pocket. The feature, aptly called Save, is however for links, places, movies, TV and music, on Facebook only. By default, the items on Save are private, unless the user chooses to share them with friends. The saved items list is organized by category, and can be archived. Facebook says it…
I’ll certainly use this, it would be nice if it could integrate with instapaper.

What is the big attraction in music to the global tech-titans? It might be that we are on the cusp of redrawing e-commerce.
It seems that it’s agreed-upon that human curation is the focus of music platforms for now. It’s not clear how that will solve what at least I see as the main issue which is that artists need to be fairly compensated, but it could be a start. I hope that we find a different way besides advertising to make money on internet content in general soon though.
Startups tend to hold a lot of meetings. Too many. Have less. One of the easiest ones to kill is the status meeting. You don’t need to constantly meet with your team to provide a round robin of updates. Just have them write it down. Put it in a Google Doc and have everyone read it once a week.
When it comes to decision-making meetings, make reversible decisions quickly. Most decisions in startups are reversible and yet we agonize over them for too long. When you come together, get the right data and the right people and drive toward a decision.
Do this for all decision-making meetings, unless it’s truly an irreversible decision. Take more time with those, have more conversations, involve your advisors and board. Otherwise decide and execute. Your biggest advantage as a startup is the ability to change quickly later since there are so few moving parts."
