8:18 am Rchards: Wondering whether this chap's stats accord with those on oxis, and how they correlate with income #oxsmc09
8:18 am blurky: #oxsmc09 Matt Hindman low barrier to entry = myth, cosider Google's spending, exclusionary scales. He's not happy with this.
8:19 am Nigel_Shadbolt: simply because we have a strong market for ideas doesn't mean everyone has real market access #oxsmc09

8:26 am drgrahamwilson: Is 'complexity' the same as 'cost of entry'? #OXSMC09
8:26 am Snarklife: FINALLY someone says it. 2.0 isn't democratic cos getting heard relies on celebrity endorsement, marketing or offline popularity #oxsmc09
8:27 am dsifry: Hindman making claim that indeed you have to ask permission to be heard by lots of people in the blogosphere (I TOTALLY DISAGREE) #oxsmc09
8:27 am petecranston: @Snarklife but isn't it the 360 connections that make socnet: phone is a platform - see www.mxit.com #oxsmc09
8:27 am drgrahamwilson: Can someone explain to me what the cost of entry specifically has to do with the IMPACT of Social Media? #OXSMC09

8:49 am MarketSentinel: #oxsmc09 Yevgeny Morozov suggests social media has actually reduced quality of healthcare debate
8:49 am blurky: #oxsmc09 hindman: internet = extreme polarization. (I say effective mediators create totalizing media frameworks - 'TiVo as politics')

9:58 am emmapsych: The first figure was 1.5 billion view of political vids. Second figure 150 million of candidate vids. Hence 9/10. #oxsmc09
9:59 am kcorrick: #oxsmc09 McGregor - the sm tools you use have to fit in to your overall campaign strategy. The voices have to be authentic + honest.
9:59 am chriscondron: @caffeinebomb Mutually exclusive? Shurely massive boozy postive feedback loop? #oxsmc09
