How much do we listen to each other? How of much of what we do is skimming a weblog looking for the “juicy” parts, so that we can act and react accordingly?
This weekend, I’ve seen way too much reaction, and not enough comprehension. And I see signs of this continuing.
I’m tired. Tonight, I feel really tired.
Eric wrote the following in response to a comment John Robb made about journalistic coverage of web services:
‘…that’s what the press does: it’s reactive, it covers emerging trends as they emerge, but it doesn’t instantly declare, “Revolution in the barnyard, the big rooster is dead” the instant the tiny chick makes its first hole in the shell (as much as the chick would like it to).’
Cluck. Cluck. Heh.
