Another great talk at the #TEDxBrussels 2012 conference, this time by Alexander Asseily.
The message: we had the Age of Writing, we had the Age of Printing, we had the Age of Telecommunications, and we are now in the Age of Information. Next will be the Age of Wisdom, or the Age of Relevance, if you will.
Spot on, if you ask me! There is so much information on the internet, in general, and in social networks, specifically. But how does an individual know what is relevant? Where is the wisdom in the chaos of facts?
My personal opinion: I like to compare the Twitter community with a tree full of tweeting birds. Impossible to tell what bird to listen to, you can't even hear them individually. Just a mass of tweets. But so fresh to the ears - like Spring after Winter.
