I think the kids call it ‘wicked smart’

This post is stuffed full of interesting ideas and claims.  One I really liked:

Information scalability. The No. 1 issue in modern communication is the superhuman rate of expansion in global information production. Mainstream media in 2009 attempt to deal with this problem by artificially limiting the “meaningful” sources of information and then applying “news judgment” to that limited stream. The engineering trick for journalism will be to create systems that scale the true global flow of data to levels that can be used comfortably by humans. This will be accomplished through information architecture, informatics, artificial intelligence, exotic findability structures, taxonomy/folksonomy systems, smart archival and curation techniques, plus multiple reputational and credibility scoring systems.

We are so far from this working.  In the valley, we aren’t even thinking about it.  We’re still stuck thinking about web portals.  This isn’t 1997.
