Co-Founder Stone Leaving Twitter

Biz Stone, who helped launch the microblogging service in 2006, is leaving day-to-day work at the company. Although he will remain involved with Twitter, most of his time will be spent on the relaunch of the start-up where Twitter was first developed: the Obvious Corp.

The departure marks the latest shift among the executive ranks at Twitter. Jack Dorsey, who came up with the idea for the microblog, returned in March as product chief, two years after being replaced as chief executive by the third co-founder, Ev Williams. Mr. Williams stepped down as CEO in October and was replaced by current CEO Dick Costolo.

SF Startup Copious Is A Social Marketplace

A San Francisco startup called Copious has built an online marketplace that allows all buyers and sellers to link their Facebook identities. The idea is to make the online marketplace feel safer and allowing buyers and sellers to see how many degrees of separation the other party is in their network.

The user will also be able to see if anyone in their networks has purchased, shared, or commented on an item from the seller. Not only can Facebook identities be linked, but also Twitter accounts and blogs too, giving you a fairly well drawn picture that you aren’t dealing with a Nigerian scammer.

Man Gets His Laptop Back, Thanks To Twitter

An Oakland man had his laptop stolen in March of this year, and three months later, finally got his property back. Did it take three months to find the thief? Nope, it took less than 24 hours. Here’s what happened: The victim, Joshua Kaufman had his laptop stolen soon after he had installed theft-tracking software.

The software did its job just right and sent pictures of the thief, but when Kaufman went the police with the pictures, the Oakland police weren’t too concerned, even when Kaufman was able to tell the exact whereabouts of the man who stole his laptop.

He followed up with the investigator a month later, and still nothing. He contacted the Oakland Police Department twice via e-mail, and he hadn’t heard back. So what’s a guy to do?
