Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? - Jessi Hempel at Business Week's Next: Innovation Tools & Trends likes what Obama is doing with online video, specifically that he's not doing what Hillary Clinton is doing: treating online video like "traditional tv." But Obama, says Hempel, is no David Cameron, who I was giving my love to (for his use of social media, not for his politics) back in October 2006.

Not a Joiner - Also from Business Week, take a look at what U.S. online users are doing with their time. I like the breakdown of user types because it demonstrates that we're not all getting the same thing out of social media: creators, critics, collectors, joiners, spectators and inactives. I'm a creator, critic, collector and spectator myself. And you?

Online Health Fair - RevolutionHealth.com has launched their first "health fair," featuring health-related nonprofits, to which Revolution will make a donation based on the number of clicks through to their "booth." The pay off is a little lame, with the booths not particularly well-designed and the user experience falling flat. (Did Revolution give the groups a template and let them do their thing? Maybe a little quality control would have done the trick.) (Thanks to 901am for the heads up.)

Glam-orous Life - iVillage no more. Glam is now the number one social network for women. Yet another club that I have no interest in joining (via Mashable).
