Stephen Dale's insight:

I think my Internet minute is to ignore most of this, since around 70% of it is "noise"!

Rebecca Gajecki remembers when she researched her school papers by going to the library and looking stuff up in books.

Stephen Dale's insight:

Do you remember the days before you carried around the world in your pocket?

 

That would have been before Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, submitted his proposal for what became the Web back in March of 1989. The Web turned 25 years old this week and it's hard to imagine an invention or process that has changed our lives as much in recent history, impacting everything from political movements to our love lives.

For one thing, I hated going to the library. So I am much happier having all the information in books (and more) right at my finger tips, all the time.

The Future of Social Media Is Mobile Tribes

kEveryone has different needs, and the social landscape is shifting accordingly.

Stephen Dale's insight:

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!
