Two weeks ago I posted that I thought conversation was going to be an important ingredient to the web, not merely as an adjunct to content but as the content itself. This was a theme that I was starting to see recurring.
Since then, this theme has taken on an even greater prominence for me. I am going to go out on a limb and say that this is likely to be the most important and lasting contribution made by the social media movement. Namely, the turning point for the web shifting from a publishing platform to a conversational medium.
I think the implications will be really substantial. And I hope to have some investments that play a big role in capturing the value I believe will be created.
