Comments: The Cold Statistics Of Recent Discussion

Well, I suppose the Officially Sanctioned Discussion has moved on, so we can do our research in relative obscurity.

viz the news from down under, viz FT article, viz NY mag article, viz Slate article,
I guess we should return our seats to the upright position for the coming crash. ;-]

Bleeding Edge was an OK column but not worth time to subscribe to. I read it from the pages of The Age which I use as my main news reference for all things here in Oz. But as a general rule I try not to read about the same thing more than twice - so Razor would often get overlooked because I get my main cover tech news elsewhere. I don'y like echo chambers.

I admit it I am an info junkie, I am happiest swimming in a sea of information and drowning in data.

If you are blogging for money and it doesn't involve boobs you had better be very rich or have a big inheritance.

There is a better way to elevate the 'good stuff' from people who are not as well known (yet) - we just still need to build the tools and systems to properly expose them, as opposed to relying on those who already have power to bring more people into their ranks, diminishing the power they have achieved.

Most A-listers are not like Doc Searls and Robert Scoble - who care about people over power or politics. But the good news is that they lead by example - an example that I expect others will begin to follow.

The motivations of people within the system and the design of the system itself are the two elements that can be influenced - so let's continue to influnce them! I hope to have a team together working on the tools within 3 months and released within 6...
