"Even as advertisers struggle to fill the two dimensional media that is steadily inflating with bigger screens, more page impressions, more titles and more audiences, they must also learn to cope with the emergence of a new, third media dimension — the networks of relationships that manufacture our opinions. Thanks to blogs and Google, the apocryphal "six degrees of separation" has shrunk to two degrees (at least among blogs), and one million of us are united in a tightly woven network of text links.
With these global and niche intersubjectivities come a new sensibility. We’ve moved from an age of "bcc" to "cc." Each audience can now watch itself consume, evaluate and communicate, and our knowledge of each other’s reactions to an event or product will inevitably influence our own reaction."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
