Don't forget, Twitter has become a great info aggregator for many of us. You can access anyone's favorite articles by typing in their Twitter profile name and then "/favorites", (example: http://twitter.com/bobbylehew/favorites); this is an exceptional way to peek inside someone's head and discover what articles and comments are of most interest to them.
Speaking of peeking inside someone's head, this has nothing to do with marketing or social media (or does it?), I just thought this was cool: a Vanity Fair article entitled Inside Dylan's Brain.
