Information Tsunami

David Kirkpatrick, reporting from PC forum, says: “As the data problems get more complicated, so do the solutions. More and more, businesspeople will have to become conversant in software issues if they’re going to run an effective enterprise. If we don’t keep inventing, and companies don’t keep buying, we will all drown in the oncoming tsunami of information.”

I think the time has come to see how to build out the Memex as envisioned by Vannevar Bush. Blogs, RSS, Outlines, Links are the ingredients. Steven Johnson has been writing about this [1 2 3].

Its something I’ve been thinking about as the next big leap for BlogStreet. More on this soon.
