Field Notes : 10.2008 : Social Media Video Style (People, Technology)
Here is an example of why I like social media, in this case a video site, Phreadz.com.
In this example we have Seth and Dave, both are writer and they both love books. Here you can vicariously enjoy their asynchronous conversation about the books they are reading. You can’t tell but the two parts of this conversation are separated by about eight weeks.
I have read some of the books they are discussing which makes the conversation even more meaningful for me.
With the wonderful technology of the Internet I can even share their conversation with you. Does it seem wrong that I would be able to share this with you? What do you think? One of the less talked about features of Social Media is the ease with which thinks can be copied and shared.
