It’s all about the Filter

It’s all about the filter: “In Media 2.0, the new center of value creation is the FILTER (or “smart aggregators” and “reconstructors,” to use Umair’s terms). In a world of infinite content, it’s the filter that creates a coherent media experience.”
I agree that the filter is critical…but I think it’s the learning/socialization/content network that takes precedence. The network serves as a filter itself. And the notion of integration/recombination is probably of greater value than the filter as well. A filter is a transient concept – existing primarily to enable us to do what we want to do. The filter is not the “end” – it’s a conduit to enable more effective functioning in information overload environments.
