Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Picked this up on Socialmedian:

Broadcasting BrainHyperconnectivity shakes up six degrees of separation

Type 0 and 1 plus:

  • Social media and Web 2.0 (social news, social bookmarking, and social networking)

  • Audio and video blogging
  • Open IM clients (e.g. GTalk)
  • Wireless connectivity

Communication advances have generally created faster and easier to use methods. In the pre-Internet era, nothing was faster than a phone call except for a face-to-face meeting (although travel time to arrange a face-to-face meeting was often prohibitive). Today we have a number of methods that allow virtually real-time interaction and more variations on them seem to appear on a regular basis.

Lots of visuals in this post. The author seems to beĀ alluding to attention economy variables in Part II.
