Following the vein of some of my other #junechallenge posts, I’m doing some thinking about Internet hype cycles and the impact of Internet on culture.
As a prelude to that, listen to Nora Young’s interview with Bill Wasik on Viral Culture. One thing that piqued my interest was a comment about spending time working on things that don’t have to be published ASAP to be relevant. Content that is good because it is good, not because it is timely (something for all you Twitter addicts out there).
(For those of you not addicted to CBC, Nora Young is, among other things, the host of Spark on CBC Radio. Spark is "a blog, radio show, podcast and an ongoing conversation about technology and culture.")
