Search still drives. Search in many way is what makes social content valuable to marketers. I can only see search continuing to be important as more and more content is created... Great post!

@Keith - that is a starting point. However, with online, the network becomes more distributed thanks to the weak links at the edges. We constantly meet new people, and expand the "walls" of our circle when we do. That is different from the past and it happens because of the technology.

@David - it was a good session. It's a personal choice that every person can make what to reveal in exchange for convenience - that's part of what I got from the session. I agree it's a concern.

@Rachel - in my case, my network is constantly changing and evolving. In the same way as I don't read the same blogs today that I read when I started blogging, I see the network as a flexible membrane that keeps changing.

@Carolyn Ann - what happens is that at some point it will be something users want and request. At least I get a sense that many are already there from the conversations I had here at SxSW.

Mental meltdown time...

I've *never* been any good at explaining the whys and wherefores of the English language.

I'll stop now. Obviously I need wither your inspiration, or another mug of coffee. Sorry! :-)

Carolyn Ann
