Teach a man to fish

It occurred to me that what I am doing when I find interesting people who point to interesting stuff, add them to my networks in the various social tools I use, then subscribe to the best of them in FriendFeed – is building a big fishing net with which to catch the good stuff of the web as it floats by.

  1. To quote the Cisco "Human Network" commercials that ran here in the states — "in the future people will subscribe to people – not magazines" — I have moved from RSS feeds to Twitter feeds, following what my favorite people are reading. Indeed, I now follow people not publications..


  2. Yes I thought that with Robert Peston’s blog on the BBC. I am more interested in him and what he says than the BBC. In fact I even thought it when there were rumours that the morning DJ on Radio 1, Chris Moyles, was rumoured to be getting the push. I would follow him to his own podcast at the drop of a hat.
