(via Roland Tango’s blog) The Ferryman looks at a presentation from Stuart Henshall that pursued the theme that community development of blogging could follow the theme of “Jazz in the Blogosphere”.
Blogging, wikis, jazz communities and Industry too | The Ferryman
“Blogs to augmented social software is best thought about by combining two metaphors. Jazz and the jukebox….combine a weblog and RSS feeds and you get more than just the capability to publish frequent updates to a website and similarly aggregate information from other sites. While building context over time you instantly become part of a web of data exchange, one connecting many people who are cross-linking and sharing information. …It’s also important to recognize that a good jazz community isn’t only comprised of musicians.”
