An interesting cartoon by Hugh Titled Two questions
Two hypothetical questions:
1. “How do I use blogs to change the world?”
2. “How do I use blogs to preserve the status quo?”
I speak at a lot of blogging conferences and whatnot. Seems to me, as these gigs get more mainstream and corporate, I’m asked Question Two A LOT MORE than Question One.
Looks like there is a Civil War like situation here. Civil War sans violence or bloodshead. But will bleed the heck out of the status quo.
I am going to develop this civil war concept a little bit and try to offer answers to ‘Web2.0:What is the business model?’ Maybe I will call it Livic Flux reflecting the reversal of power( read attension) back to people.
The current popular models are a big joke like a corporate projection: There will be a huge demand for flags during a Civil War.
The dino analysts will miss the point of civil war as an opportunity to play Mahathma Gandhi of the era.
