Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - We Can Choose

« The Future (of Advertising) is Already Here | Main | What do You Want for Christmas? »


Vaspers -- the value in conversations rests with the connection we make, I agree. And that should be protected in any medium.

Steve -- to a certain extend I tend to do that too, because my focus is more on learning about the people behind the blogs, *their* work and their passions. One exception I make is ProBlogger. Darren Rowse is extremely personable, kind and gets the whole connection thing.

I hear you, Valeria. I've discovered that I'm actually shying away from blogs with adsense and other money generating vehicles. It's not that I don't believe in capitalism. It's that I want to network in, as you mentioned, a "purer" way and focus on building relationships and knowledge based on quality content.

It's fun being a hardcore blogger with an established core of blogging Ethics, best Practices, and futuristically triumphant Vision.

Blog aimlessly, pornographically, or con-artistically is the least fun.

The real value of the Trust Web of the blogosphere is how we not express anything we choose, but also how we begin to connect and collaborate with our readers, comment posters, and other bloggers.

Thus, the purity of the blog as communication and peer to peer recommendation channel must be carefully defined and combatively defended, for a poisoned quicksand of scam and spam is not what we would like to see the blogoland become, not until we have our alternative computelepathic mental vpn channels completely implemented and tested for public use.
