The Web 2.0 Information Blur

There is a great video going around the webby world on the nano now to spark ideas and relationships about rethinking "a few things" by Michael Wesch and his class at Kansas State University.

Indeed the importance of *thinking* is what this is about.

Thoughts Continue

Thoughts scattered into the electronic winds of the Internet.
Will the blabber end?
Blog site after blog site
No one making sense
Losing meaning moment by moment
On the way to nowhere
Only to realize we are actually now here.

The Adam Effect

The Adam Effect is defined as the moment at which something takes on enough meaning to affect an entire culture.

IE -- Someone eventaully came upon poison ivy. They probably did not realize at first that the plant gave them the irritating rash. So shamans, priests, etc... deemed these persons as unclean. It wasn't until the connection was made between encountering the plant giving the person the rash. This is an "Adam Effect". Eventually the "news" of this connection was shared, but among what people? What level of economoic status was this information shared? Did only Indians know about poison ivy and its effects? Who were the first of the "elite" to be aware of the toxic property of this plant. White man named the plant, did native Americans name the plant before the "white-man"? If so, how was it that it was figured out that poison ivy can give a person a bad rash?

Well the point is that there was a moment in TIME that a connection was made between the toxic properites of the plant and the irritating rash that occurred after encountering the plant. That connection and the sharing of that conneciton is consider to be the "Adam Effect".

When a moment becomes defined as 15 seconds are we there yet?

Someone stated that everyone would have 15 minutes of fame. With the erosion of time and many wanting to die at the speed of light (or try to do business at the speed of light) I conjecture that we've moved from 15 minutes to 15 seconds for our moment of fame or otherwise.

I seek no fame in this thought, for there are thoughts beyond thoughts and stars beyond stars.

Let the wonder continue....
