The enduring lesson of social media

Susan Mernit: (From “What is Web 2.0?”) “The enduring lesson of all of the social media and emerging technologies is that we’ve created an a la carte, do it yourself platform where users can engage with sophisticated forms of search, feeds, metadata and APIs, social networks and identity, and commerce and fill these vessels with their own information — And that’s the heart of the revolution, IMHO. The tools power it, but the people do it.”
