Hey Circlers (or is it GPlussers?) , anyone in NYC and up for a "Circle-up" through Sat this week? Or is it called "Plus-up"? (Once upon a time, at the dawn of social media, I attended Tweetups...but never Facebookups or LinkedInUps...)

Interesting post about optimizing for content consumption (and curation) vs. creation:

In our personal lives we tend to optimize for one of two things: input or output. Reading or writing. Consuming or creating. The environment we live in – the prevailing culture – by default is optimized for consumption. Even our personal computers are turning into devices that are optimized for consumption! This is terrible and dangerous.

Probably some truth to this.
