Italian Google convictions: a wake up call for UGC services

On Wednesday, an Italian court convicted three Google executives. Their crime? Google failed, in the eyes of the prosecutor, to pull down a video uploaded to Google Video.

The video, which showed several students in Turin bullying a classmate with Autism, resulted in 10 months of community service for the uploader.

Glam Monetizes Oscar Widget

At least. Glam did during last night's Oscar telecast. The company plunked a widget on its home page during the Academy Awards broadcast last night so its users could share their thoughts on the telecast. Aveeno's logo graced the bottom of the app.

But unlike the live Twitter feed gracing our fair homepage, Glam editors made plenty of calls: who was allowed to tweet, as well as redlining inappropriate comments, to make the environment more advertiser-amenable.

According to a report in Venturebeat, Glam intends to continue the experiment, but isn't married to Twitter. Facebook and Friendfeed could supply the user-generated content in future endeavors in a product it has dubbed "gWire".

Glam experimented with the feature during New York's Fashion Week last week to enthusiastic participation. The company says it's creating a pool of freelance contributors it can trust to feed teh stream with less supervision and accordingly, lower editorial overhead.

Encyclopedia Britannica takes a page from Wikipedia

When it comes to online 'encyclopedias', chances are that Wikipedia springs to mind faster than the 241 year-old Encyclopedia Britannica.

Despite the virtues of an encyclopedia that is 100% edited by humans, Britannica's influence has waned in today's Wikipedia world.
