Matt Blumberg has a good thoughtful post up on the notion of the “We Media Deal.” Matt spends a lot of time paying attention to the transition from “Old Media” to “New Media” to “Next Media” (or “We Media”). Matt posits that We Media has two components:
- The value of the service to you increases in lock-step as you contribute more data to it.
- The more transparent the value exchange, the more willing you are to share your data.
Worth a careful read if you are developing anything that interacts with end users.
