Comments on: Counterparties.com arrives http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/09/07/counterparties-com-arrives/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: alexSch http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/09/07/counterparties-com-arrives/comment-page-1/#comment-30671 Thu, 08 Sep 2011 16:36:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=9778#comment-30671 this is very exciting!

my humble 2 cents:
your blog is a great place for the one-line write-ups of old, while counterparties can be the place to expand.
ALSO: the counterparties RSS feed leaves some to be desired. the body of the post simply repeats the headline. the post itself would be ideal, but just noting the source in the body would go a long way.

best of luck. looking forward.

If I may give my opinion, I don’t think it would be a good idea to tweet every story at Counterparties, I would rather prefer to receive a tweet now and then with a sort of “reminder”, i.e. a great article or story. Greetings from Germany, readingfortoday.tumblr.com

While filled with generated content, hopefully we’ll see something of the “Felix touch” with an editorial or two.

I think that it would be nice if I could have your Brew items on counterparties.com site (these are the items that you have tagged and/or commented on, I guess) as a separate RSS feed (together with your comments, of course).

By the way, is there a way to have the list of your Google Reader feeds? As an OPML file or anyhow. I’ve understood that the source for the counterparties.com content is the people you follow on Twitter plus the feeds you follow on Google Reader. The former of these is already listed on Twitter, but what are those feeds that you follow?

Thank you.

As I tweeted to you, I think it could get even better if you can incorporate the best responses/discussion about these stories/landing pages, as TechMeme does at its best. A long list of identical tweets as ‘Sources’ doesn’t add a whole lot of value if they’re not also saying something, but links to smart discussion around that topic would. Maybe I’ll build that on top of the Counterparties feed (only half joking)…

Please do keep your own Counterparties – especially now that you’re adding some more commentary around it. I think you should tweet out everything, but consider creating a twitter acct for Tier One Counterparties, the more select stuff.

You didn’t comment on the name Counterparties, which I think is brilliant. A third party that’s essential to you doing business and therefore also can pose risk if it’s not itself healthy. That’s how today’s web functions for news orgs, but it’s still so rarely acknowledged in the explicit manner of this new site.

Perhaps it would make sense to gradually put fewer and fewer links in the daily Reuters blogpost, with more and more insistent “more at counterparties.com” reminders.
