OK, +Trey Harris
, I'm your Huckleberry...
Here are some excerpts on how Jeff's work and thinking gets interwoven into my own on nearly a daily basis:
"Oh Mashable, how doest thou remind me of a glorified Content Farm... let me count the ways...": plus.google.com/112964117318166648677/posts/bkKswVxKbS4
"Gregory Esau --- This is the problem. Content has reached it's bottom, the end of a trend to treat is as bait for eyeballs, bait for advertising. Content without context, content without meaning, content as filler is just that, filler. Why would it have any value?
There is a market for meaning. Context matters.
Alex Schleber --- +Gregory Esau I hear ya, but that is the result of Content Overabundance and the resulting The Content Creator's Dilemma (my coinage). More here: businessmindhacks.com/post/jeff-jarvis-on-what-ive-been-beginning-to-call-the-content-creators-dilemma
I think +Jeff Jarvis is onto something when talks about the Internet Age being in the equivalent of the 50-100 year long phase after the invention of Gutenberg's Printing Press, where everything was just beginning to experience massive upheavals.
He says in essence that we are like those people in 1460-ish, who couldn't really know or see how everything was going to change and "pan out" (if you can call it THAT, including reformation, religious wars incl. the 30 Years War in the 17th century, asf. ...).
I think that there will be a near complete restructuring of what it means to create meaning online, and we will look back at this "Content" era as one of the less enlightened phases of the entire movement."
