This presentation by David Gillespie is brilliant..... http://www.slideshare.net/DavidGillespie/digital-strangelove-or-how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-internet
I love a couple quotes.... "Data is the bank. Meaning is the currency. Intent drives data + meaning."
It took me a few times through to understand what he is saying. Lots of great info on people I should read up on more like Clay Shirky, Faris Yakob, and Marshall Mcluan (read him 30 years ago - don't think I understood most of it then).
Would enjoy if you post your comments.
