Morning Brief — Monday, June 23

Hope everyone had a good weekend.  Humidity was low on Saturday and I managed to go for a long run without keeling over, so all is well with the world.  I did, however, arrive in the office this morning to two voicemail messages saying, “I have a question for you — please call me.”  Unless you’re leaving me a message to let me know a loved one has died or I’ve been fired, please, take 10 seconds to set the context.

TechCrunch ranks the “real market value” of the social networks.  There are lots of complicated numbers, but it boils down to MySpace being the top-ranked network followed by Facebook.  I don’t know about MySpace (having shut down my account on International Shut Down Your MySpace Account Day) but a lot of publishing folk are on Facebook.
