I originally posted Howard Rhinegold's wonderful interview with Robin Good several months ago. However, as we approach 2012, I must share it again, as it seems more timely now than ever.

If you have just listened to this for the second (or in my case probably 4th) time, you will find so many things you may not have digested several months ago.

Here is just one gem that caught my attention this time:

**A group of curators create an alternative to Google "A Google for the people by the people". Instead of relying on secret algorithms, they create their own ecosystem of curated rankings where THEY decide what is relevant for them.

**Curators collaborating together - Trusted People who are gateways to relevant information for each other as they tap into each others discovery, perspectives, opinions, expertise, different points of view so they can find meaning and make sense of it and pass it on to their audiences.

**My input - this can lead to a collective intelligence that we've never experienced before.

Lots to ponder, so much to look forward to........
