One thing I’ve noticed is that there is a lot of literature about social media and online communities, whether in print or on the netherwebs, which suffers from:
- Being painfully boring, or
- Being painfully devoid of insight, or
- Being painfully both of the things I just said.
The dynamics of online communities are more interesting than a top 10 list, and the technology allowing them to exist deserves better than “blah blah target objectives something something quarterly blah something” talk. That is not an actual quote.
Thusly: I have summoned from the swirling cyber-realm this Web Log for your amusement and edification. I hope to compile my thoughts here as something publication-worthy coalesces beneath this quavering, moist dermal layer. I’ll be using words like “thusly” and “moist,” so you’ve been warned.
