I attended the mostly-excellent Content2.0 conference yesterday at London’s RSA.
However one slide he gave was particularly resonating, which Marc describes in his pre-conference blog post:
I’m gonna drop some new ideas – regarding the grey area that lies between Technology and Content. I call it San Luis Obispo – as that place is halfway between Silicon Vallery and Hollywood.
I’ve spent my entire professional career working for a media company with (arguably) the biggest Internet wing of any of its competitors. What Marc is talking about here is exactly what I’ve been thinking about for sometime – where, and what, are the opportunities for people like me who understand the Internet/Tech business and equally how to use it to leverage content to great effect?
Back to Marc’s People Aggregator, I’ve heard him speak about it before – with more technical details.
Although I’ve given him some stick about it’s slight unavoidable flaw of requiring you to share your passwords with a third-party, I still think its presence going to be more significant than many people realise at the moment.
Roll on Gnomedex, and roll on the People Aggregator!
