image IDEAS

045

We used to get our best ideas from books and talking to people. These are both still valid routes. What is possible now are so many extra channels. YouTube has a lot more to offer than pictures of cats. Twitter people we follow can bring us instant commentary on anything from the world-shaking to the banal. I like how new sites like Medium try to aggregate some of the thoughts of its writers – a site idea that came to the founders of Twitter – and I love its clean design. Thanks, Geoff Teehan.

Facebook may be losing ground not only by the teens who after all don’t really want their parents among their digital friends – but also by many adults who would rather see something more profound cranked out by their digital colleagues. I wonder if I am alone in not being full engaged by what others are eating or watching. The curating possibilities are great – but the delivery sometimes could use a bit more judgment in asking for our time and attention.
