Curious about the future of social networking? Whuffie is a conceptual social Metric based on what others think of you. In the future this Metric might actually be usable as real money. Why not? Celebrities are used to getting things for free based on their popularity. This is the same idea taken to its democratic extreme. Socializing will take on completely new dimensions when we can see everything public about a person right as we are talking with them. via designmind.frogdesign.com Continue »

Another data point: sev­eral times now I’ve put a call out on Twit­ter for real-time edit­ing. As I get responses, I’ll DM vol­un­teers with links to a rough draft and a Google form. Then I’ll go out for cof­fee. I’ll be walk­ing up Clement Street, and on my phone, the feed­back will be stream­ing in—row after row blink­ing to life in a Google spreadsheet. It’s a remark­able feeling—somehow both antic­i­pa­tion and sat­is­fac­tion at the same time. Accom­plish­ment and grat­i­tude… with a lit­tle edge of fear. There’s got to be oxy­tocin involved. via snarkmarket.com Continue »
