It's Sunday morning and I've giving myself the luxury of interspersing web crawling with work. I just landed on Robin Good's Online Collaboration news page.
Robin filters, reviews, and points to noteworthy items on the web. His interests and mine dovetail, so I can spend beaucoup time sifting through what's here. For example:
There's the start of a great debate over centralization vs decentralization. The decentralists picture their position as:
How's this for a self-referential play-within-a-play? "Individuals, the future "newsmasters" and "digital information librarians" will
be the ones that will elect themselves to become active filters and aggregators
of the increasingly vast amounts of information becoming available online.
Without them, you would be either submerged or you would have to surrender to the poor, superficial and frequently manipulated reporting available through
mainstream media channels only. Individuals are also the new sustainable artists of tomorrow.
So much great information, so little time.
But that's not what I intended to ponder and write about this morning. Robin's Online Collaboration blog also lists this pointer:
When I posted my presentation to the Web, I mentioned it on thisblog. In typical blog fashion, that entry has scrolled off the page. For visibility, that's worse than being "below the fold" on the front page of the paper. Off the page means Lost in Space.
As anyone who has run an ad campaign knows, nothing really happens until the ad is repeated again and again, sinking into the buyer's consciousness. Imagine the multiplier effect of hitting a diverse group of readers again and again that this post is out there for free viewing. Maybe I'll put a pop-up box of faves on the front page to give the good stuff longer tenure there. While I enjoy creating new stuff, the 80/20 rule tells me there's more payback from seeking exposure from what's already here.
