…this video by Simon Willison is a good place to start.
Incidentally, the way I got to the video is probably the way I’m going to get to many things in the future. I was in Facebook, used Blog Friends to get to Chris Messina’s Ma.gnolia, read a very interesting article on Identitu.de by Dan York, and while reading that saw the reference to the Simon Willison screencast (something I missed because I was recuperating in hospital when it came out).
While doing all this, I also found Aswath Rao’s blog, somewhere I intend to spend a little time. Soon.
We need to get used to this process. Some place in cyberspace you go to regularly, a place that supports your reading the blogs of people you trust and like, your friends. A way of following the recommendations that your friends make, particularly about things you’re interested in. A way of selecting from those recommendations those which you intend to do something about.
Lower search and discovery costs. Persistent and shareable processes. Patterns I can study and learn from. I like what I see.
