An interesting illustration of the power of social software came up
while I was giving my RSS presentations at the DevEssentials
conference. I explained that years ago there used to be
science-fiction-like predictions of the future with magic-like
electronic newspapers that updated themselves as the news broke. Then I
showed them Radio Userland’s news aggregator, with postings from the
FoxForum Wiki, the FoxCentral announcements, my web site, and Craig
Bernston’s posting while in the session.
The future is here.
They got it.
