Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.


  1. These social networking sites are getting out of hand. Myspace, Facebook, LinkdIn and Twitter. I already have trouble organizing myself around these. In another 6 months, a new network will come out and the process begins again.

  2. Yep. And if you get behind in setting up filters (or don’t use them at all), the information in those social networks becomes nearly useless, ’cause serendipity (seeing a great/informative/useful update by chance) only goes so far.
    Whether we realize it or not, those of us who use the social networks for information or pattern recognition or what-have-you are effectively training ourselves as curators. I suppose you could think of it as a new job – which, for now, hasn’t got a “useful” – i.e. paid – purpose in “the real world.”
    Maybe that’s why some of this stuff feels like being in school? 😉
