Twitter Vs. The New York Timesby
I spent more time on Twitter this morning than reading The New York Times. Wow, what does that mean?
It means that the people I’ve chosen to follow on Twitter provided me with more interesting insights and links to stories than the NYT.
I’ve created my own aggregation posse, my own smart group of people who do the screening of dozens and dozens of blogs, articles, videos, Web sites, whatever, for me.
OK venture capitalists out there, it’s time to start valuing Bruce’s AP—aggregation posse. What’s it worth to others on the market, as Steve Baker would say? What are my “friends” worth compared to, let’s say, Chris Anderson’s (Wired and TED) or Malcolm Gladwell’s? (Notice that I’m comparing myself to super-stars to up the value of my AG).
