  • Build tools to represent this
  • [What we I know about social media]
  • 1. is the universal acid of the web
    we should build around it
  • 2. Simple with reach trumps
    complex with small audience
  • 3. Sharing is a motivation to participation
  • 4. Start simple and let others build on top
  • 5. Providing limitations frames input
  • 6. Complexity comes from the network not the app
  • Questions
    Is the tradeoff between complexity and shareability worthwhile?
    Is this a false dichotomy?
    The Knowledge Management lesson
    Can you generate complexity/variation through bottom up?
    Only good forsimple stuff?
