If the tide of public opinion is the sum of a million tiny interconnected waves then the last 24 hours have seen one particular theme (“getting off the web 2.0 treadmill”) grow from a ripple to, well, a bigger ripple. Three events:
- Steve Rubel says: “These days, I am far more interested in what people do with technology rather than on what the latest new ‘shiny object’ is”.
- Jeremy Zawodny responds, saying: “I see too many people I know getting caught up in the breathless hype and forgetting to think about whether the latest shiny new thing really matters in the grand scheme of things”.
- Dave Slusher unsubscribes from Scoble, saying “I officially renounce the search for the newer and shinier”.
