Bookmarks for April 20th

In order to share what I’ve found to be useful/interesting/etc. while browsing around below are my links for April 20th. You can find my full set of bookmarks at my Delicious account.

  • Rough Type: Google in the middle – Nicholas Carr has an interesting view of Google’s role as the middleman between consumers and news. It’s not that he’s blaming Google (he kind of is) but more that he’s blaming the business model of news for simply being broken and passive.
  • Foreign Policy: The Next Big Thing: Africa – Africa is growing, no really it is. Even with the lack of Chinese investment this year and the decreased world commodity market the IMF is still predicting a 3% growth for the continent as a whole.
