Please, Let’s Not Go There Again

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 16:00:28 +0000

The post Please, Let’s Not Go There Again appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

Here’s a top-of-my-head rundown of all the shit going down that promises to take us forty years back, to a time when, well…you decide what kind of time it was. Women had to fight for basic rights. Anyone remember “women’s lib”? That movement found its voice in the 70s, and made steady if punctuated progress […]

Pick Up the Phone and Call.

The post Pick Up the Phone and Call. appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

(cross posted from NewCo Shift) People in business who like to Get Shit Done fall in love with each version of The New. When I was a kid, new was the the Apple II. Then the IBM PC, digital phones and voice mail, the Mac — oh God, the Mac! — word processing, email, the cell phone, the Internet — mmmmm, […]

Bad Policy Makes Us Sick. Business Must Lead Us Back.

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 14:40:09 +0000

The post Bad Policy Makes Us Sick. Business Must Lead Us Back. appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

(Cross posted from NewCo Shift) Walking around Disneyland with my daughter the other night, I found myself face to face with one of our country’s most intractable taboos. (Disneyland is still awesome for me, as a kid from 1970s LA. Truly magical.) If you’re an observer of crowds, one of the more prominent features of […]

It’s Time For Facebook to Start Making Media

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:11:29 +0000

The post It’s Time For Facebook to Start Making Media appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

There’s only one company that can possibly spin media gold on Facebook. And that’s Facebook. Round and round and round goes the debate — Facebook’s not a media company, Facebook’s not a traditional media company, Facebook’s a new kind of media company. Facebook’s gonna pay media creators to make stuff on Facebook! Wait, no they’re not. Wait, […]

We Must Fix This Fucking Mess

The post We Must Fix This Fucking Mess appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

Here are the caveats for the rant I am about to write. The fact that I am writing this on Medium will cause many of you to dismiss me for hypocrisy. Don’t. Read to the end. I will be saying the word “F*CK” a lot. If that bothers you, time to depart for calmer waters. […]

Predictions 2017: A Chain Reaction

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 16:16:28 +0000

The post Predictions 2017: A Chain Reaction appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

This is my 14th annual predictions post. And as I look back on the previous 13 and consider what to write, I’m flooded with uncertainty. That’s not like me. Writing these predictions is something I’ve always looked forward to – I don’t prepare in any demonstrable way, but I do gather crumbs over time, filing […]

Predictions 2016: How’d I Do?

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 03:46:57 +0000

The post Predictions 2016: How’d I Do? appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

At the beginning of each year I make predictions, and at year’s end, I hold myself to account. It’s kind of fun to look back and see how wrong (or right) my musings end up being. I’ll be writing my Predictions 2017 post this weekend (I think), and publishing it shortly thereafter. But for now, let’s […]

Google Capitulates to Facebook’s Identity Machine: Is This Good News For The Open Web?

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 21:22:45 +0000

The post Google Capitulates to Facebook’s Identity Machine: Is This Good News For The Open Web? appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

Long time readers of this site know that once a year I make predictions, and revisit those I made the year before. But it’s not often I look back farther than one year to see if perhaps I was just a tad too early. It appears in the case of Google and personal data, I […]

I feel terrible about this site.

The post I feel terrible about this site. appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

I don’t write here anymore. I write almost entirely on Medium now. It’s not a choice I made to NOT write here, it’s a choice I made to edit NewCo Shift, our new publication. It lives on Medium, but if it were a WordPress site, well, my writing would all be on that site. It’s […]

My Latest Columns

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 11:38:23 +0000

The post My Latest Columns appeared first on John Battelle's Search Blog.

In meetings with several colleagues over the past few days, many did not know about the column I write each week – I’ve been remiss and not cross posting my writings from NewCo Shift here. It’s been interesting to move my main focus of writing from a personal blog to a publication in-the-making. I’ll have more thoughts […]
