Flow: A New Consciousness For A Web Of Traffic
Social presence tools -- like Twitter, Facebook, Plazes, MySpace, and Jaiku -- offer us a simple way to remain connected to those that matter to us. Building on the legacy of IM presence, this new generation of social tools makes the Web into a village, a third place, where we can sense people's comings-and-goings, their everyday annoyances and joys, and receive a wink or pat on the back from people thousands of miles away or just down the hall. Connection has its costs, however. The transition from a page-based Web to a Web based on the flow of traffic -- streams of messages traveling through social networks -- is speeding up, based on RSS and the meteoric rise of social presence tools. In order to adapt to this new Web -- or perhaps because of it -- we will have to adopt a new mindset: to rewire our neurons, and rework our ethics and etiquette to match the flowing world that is emerging. Luckily, it is a better state of consciousness than the one we leave behind.
