Social Media Explained Visually

Yes, but what is say a rough estimate of the quality of the content being shared? If you don't know how to find custom-tailored content, which this little movie is really about, how much time will it take to find answers to questions beyond the most simple, basic kinds? And what is the likelihood of finding higher quality sources of content who will take their time to answer questions you (Joe Schmo, who is no longer part of a univ community) have after reading their content? How much does it cost to find reliable content? How much different is the "pay for content" access from going to the journal/book distributor and paying for the article/text cited by the online content provider?

Oh, Edo River changed to Komagawa. Why? because the koma river is closer and actually where I live and play. The Edo river stinks and is surrounded up to the very edge by concrete and house/building fronts. The Komagawa will eventually be the same, just not in my lifetime, I hope.

Another thought... this video is all excited about process: feedback, networking, sharing. But it takes content. All we need to do is take a look at the comments most people share: "great." "I disagree." "Hey, did you watch the Mets game?" Buried in this linear, chronologically displayed progression of trivia are comments that might be valuable to keep, but unless you know their key words....

So in this way the beast's appetite is filled, with allot of trivia, and suspended in it all are a few juicy morsels.

All that will get buried, and essentially erased from the next day's consciousness as a new item appears, waiting for comments.

I am waiting for the new break through in dynamic storage and linking that lets us see collected comments filtered by some quality criteria and applied continuously.
