  • The map -- interesting little take on people finding each other via the new media; how many are looking for you? says one ad.
  • This is your mind online -- Ah yes, the web's contents/presentations do (can) have palpable results. And, what we are on-line may tell a bit about ourselves (only to the extent allow by 'being' (small-t issue). The avatar (whose look, and behavior, will surely change) is one example that bears some more attention.
  • Under the hood -- basically looks at some technical issues related to the two big players, yet these apply to the whole spectrum. Yes, your on-line being does not exist without a whole lot of support.
Now, to tie into the blog's focus, here are some concepts to be explored further within the context of social media: map-territory, Turing space, t-issues, truth and lemons, ... One subject may be to anticipate how these will look in 10 years and to what extent we may have changed.
