Four short links: 31 January 2012

  1. The Sky is Rising -- TechDirt's Mike Masnick has written (and made available for free download) an excellent report on the entertainment industry's numbers and business models. Must read if you have an opinion on SOPA et al.
  2. Tennis Australia Exposes Match Analytics -- Served from IBM's US-based private cloud, the updated SlamTracker web application pulls together 39 million points of data collated from all four Grand Slam tournaments over the past seven years to provide insights into a player's style of play and progress. The analytics application also provides a player's likelihood of beating their opponent through each round of the two-week tournament and the 'key to the match' required for them to win. "We gave our data to IBM, said, 'Here we go, that's 10 years of scores and stats, matches and players'," said Samir Mahir, CIO at Tennis Australia. Data as way to engage fans. (via Steve O'Grady)
  3. Data Monday: Logins and Passwords (Luke Wroblewski) -- Password recovery is the number one request to help desks for intranets that don’t have single sign-on portal capabilities.
  4. QR Codes: Bad Idea or Terrible Idea? (Kevin Marks) -- People have a problem finding your URL. You post a QR Code. Now they have 2 problems. I prefer to think of QR codes as a prototype of what Matt Jones calls "the robot-readable world"--not so much the technology we really imagine we will be deploying when we build our science fictiony future.
