leave a comment »

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is recognizing social media’s potential to shape public opinion, and requesting monitoring and analysis of Facebook and Twitter conversations.

The Fed’s “Request for Proposal for a Sentiment Analysis and Social Media Monitoring Solution” aims to identify online conversations by the public, bloggers, and other influencers for the department’s Communications Group. The program seeks to monitor billions of conversations on social media, generate text analytics, and also determine the sentiment of a speaker or writer with respect to some topic or document.

KODAK SAID TO WEIGH BANKRUPTCY FILING TO SPUR PATENT SALE

leave a comment »

Eastman Kodak Co , the unprofitable 131-year-old camera maker, is weighing options including a bankruptcy filing because of concerns raised by possible bidders for its patent portfolio, said three people with direct knowledge of the process. The shares plunged.

Some potential buyers of the patents are reluctant to proceed with bids because a purchase may amount to a so-called fraudulent transfer if Kodak becomes insolvent, said the people, who asked not to be named because the talks are private.

MURDOCH SONS’ RE-ELECTION TO NEWS CORP. OPPOSED

leave a comment »

James Murdoch and his brother Lachlan, sons of billionaire Rupert Murdoch, should be replaced on the News Corp. board to improve accountability at the company, an Australian pension fund group said.

The brothers and four other board members shouldn’t be re- elected because the company needs “credible skilled outside directors,” the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors, whose members manage more than A$250 billion ($244 billion) in pension assets, said on its website.
