Why an algorithmic Twitter would be devastating for everyone.

HERE/FORTH CEO, Paul Armstrong, was asked by Digiday for his thoughts on the recent remark made by Twitter CEO, Dick Costello, following the Q2 Twitter results.

As the amount of information being input increases, the ability to manage it is not only important for the future success of Twitter but a critical factor. [...] However, without knowing what it is aiming for, Twitter’s future is unclear, and that will likely continue to worry investors and confuse both users and brands.

Is Facebook too big to fail?

HERE/FORTH Founder, Paul Armstrong, was asked by the Guardian to discuss his thoughts about Facebook's current path and his time at Myspace. 

My concern for Facebook is that if it stays on its current “push them gently and see how far we can go” path we will get to a place where we (its users) lose more than we gain. I suspect it will take reaching this precipice before the question can be answered whether Facebook is too big to fail.
