Found this one through Robert Scoble’s Link Blog citing Jon Burg’s Future Visions site. It says a lot about how we think about information, especially in how we categorize it, and how we might be under-selling the way we make media on the web.
One point of finding and sharing YouTube videos is to share what’s IN the video. The other point, which some of you might have already caught, is showing how blogs and media and all these tools work together to communicate information without you having to go seek it.
Consider: Scoble reads all his blogs. He highlights ones he likes. I read his highlights. I select ones I want to re-highlight. Occasionally, I pull something out and post about it. You read it. You can then re-post, highlight, add, manipulate, or forget what you’ve just consumed.
Information, especially in the ways we use it on the web, is alive, movable, and if you’ve got it all set up right, comes to you without much heavy lifting.
