OK, As these web tools proliferate, one must constantly keep asking the question, To what end? So who cares about blogs, or tweets? or even a combination of the two, bleets? I am of the opinion of that while these tools are unique and empower us to keep talking, I dont see an equal amount of effort or tools deployed in the otherside of the equation – Listening. I wish someone develops killer applications that help us – listen, observe, hear a lot more. So i can keep bleeting till i go read in my face, if no one is listening then I am talking to myself. there is a word to describe people who talk to themselves when no-one is listening – Lunatics. So any ideas on how we can pause for a moment in this information overloaded, high decibel, environment?
We need to ask ourselves – how can these tools improve my ability to converse?
