On his book blog Weinberger has a review of the session at Yahoo! as well. A couple of things i jotted down as i listened:
- those that accumulate ideas accumulate power
- in content distribution traditionally 'experts' on the way in do the categorization- in today's world you must include everything and filter on the way out
- changes in data storage changes the way we 'organize' data- it is more expensive (time to do it) to delete then to keep - eg. reviewing your digital pictures
- brain seems to be clusters- not set up to think categorically although we have learned to
- social filtering- making use of people you know or respect to do the filtering (how different is that for example like a librarian who categorizes a book a 'romance'? well the 'masses' can do it and it might be more relevant because the ones you listen to are like you
- personalized newspapers 'the daily me'- usually sent via e-mail or blogs or even personal widget pages (netvibes, igoogle)- the new front page 'filtered news' - aggregate the aggregation of the aggregation- by those that we respect
I just ordered the book Everything Is Miscellaneous along with Seth Godin's new book The Dip.
