    It wasn’t that different in the late 90s (web 1.0). Instead of blogs you had sites like http://www.fuckedcompany.com/ where employees of struggling companies gathered to commiserate.

    Hi Will, Funny that you bring up Fuckedcompany. Yesterday, Shannon and I were discussing this very point vis a vis the difference between then and now. Back then we had one site (OK, one major site, Fuckedcompany) that everyone went to in order to check if they were next on the chopping block. Now, there are 55 million blogs and as many opportunities for people to share news, information, or simply to stop by and commiserate as you point out.

    BTW: We really like your blog Living in Small Sizes. We’ve got you plugged into our RSS readers now.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about this – the differences in dissemination of information between web 1.0 and 2.0, or even web 2.0 and say the middle ages.

    Particularly if the mutation of information is less or more. Of course I have no data to do any analysis of substance on the issue, but it seems like the proliferation of social media has more in common with how information was disseminated before the 15th century (when the press was invented). The big difference of course being speed.

    I really don’t have a point – other than I find it interesting that social media is being re-invented with new technology. Then: 55 market stalls in London. Now: 55 million blogs online. If there is truth to this then I would be interested to know why and how governemnt (and later corporations) took over the media.

    It seems to me that technology (the press) allowed for the break up of social media, and now technology (web 2.0 architecture) is allowing for a second creation (a revival if you will) of social media.

    I’m sure someone smarter than me has written a book on this subject and I just need to find it 😉
