1) The "networks don’t have people…people have networks" concept floated here has become a full-fledged snowball.
- Ross Mayfield – "Here’s some related Soylent Green."
- Demian Entrekin – "Individuals create value for organizations through the impact of their Project Network, not through their position in the organization chart."
- David Wallace – "It’s about the people, people."
- David Cushman – "When you aggregate personal data in profiles (eg facebook) you risk imposing structural limitations on the conversation and on the way groups form. This leads to severe restrictions on value and growth creation in your network."
- Marshall Lager – "It’s why Facebook (for example) has been having trouble – it takes ownership of pieces of you."
2) A point of caution on the "social media divide" from Francine Hardaway (with more here) – "Fellow geeks, we live in a dream world — a world of Twitter – Twhirl – Friendfeed – AlertThingy – Seesmic. And if you think most people reading this can identify any of those things, think again. Moreover, if you think there’s a chance of any of those crossing the real chasm in the next ten years, think again."
