Liz Strauss discusses the Information and Relationships Webs:
Two very different world views one informational, one relational. Each point of view defines the experience differently. Static or dynamic, take your pick.
This elephant is standing on the web.
What is a link? Is a link clicks and traffic and Google rankings? Or does a link represent that I know you, that Ive read your content, that youre relevant and of value to me? Is a comment conversation or something I can buy or rent?
Were living in two Internets. It looks much like the companies we find in the world of brick and mortar. One is about places, information, and data. Its the buildings in which people work. The other is about people, relationships, and conversation. Its the people who work in those buildings. One is a structure. The other is social.
