Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni: Social News: Trading Accuracy for Immediacy

« No Limit for Better | Main | Why Case Studies Fail You With Customers »


"why" is a question that matters. I just reread my own post about behavioral economics. Somehow I tend to follow a thread and progression and have found some ideas there.

Catalogues bore me. Fiction is far more interesting - story and insights there. Sometimes even great writing (some of my best teachers are fiction writers).

Vicarious experience, now that is a thought.

The relationship between news, information and entertainment has become muddled in my mind.

I just don't know why its all so damn relevant to life.

Unless of course news/information has become the chief way by which we experience life - as if we are slowly pasting over the windows on the world with tweets and blogs.

By the way, I think shopping catalogues are the closest thing to the modern concept of news. I suspect this is what really matters to many.

Perhaps the same view, but now a little clearer.

@Toma - thank you for injecting a new element in the conversation. I was just discussing today how the presence of a regulatory or official body changes the dynamics of behavior - both privately and in public. A consideration that has ramifications beyond news to cover all information, and to include freedom of expression. Good food for thought.

@Peter - what if we label it "information"? Does anything change in your view?
