Dan Martell and Ethan Bloch have teamed up to create a new app called Timely, that tells you the best times to tweet during the day so that the maximum amount of people will see your message.It looks pretty accurate to me.

Check out this screenshot of Facebook's new slideshow photo viewer:There is a popup black modal that the photo sits on.It's also super fast.

My favorite blog posts to write are ones where I simply quote Gary Vanyerchuk when he speaks at conferences (SxSW '09, SxSW '10, FOWA 2010). Today, he spoke at Tahoe Tech Talk, an intimate get-together that you should absolutely attend next year.
