Revolution or Evolution?

Grant McCracken riffs on three models for how the Net is changing the world: 1) It’s cutting out the middlemen. 2) It’s allowing microcultures to flourish. 3) It’s reforming the idea of the idea. The post isn’t really dense or light, but slightly abstract and pretty interesting. McCracken doesn’t necessarily contend that all or any of these models is actually true.

I love that post!

Where did you find this guy & his blog? SUPER-smart and interesting.

He just posted this thing about "brand extractors" -- also worth reading. And here's the inside story of the RAZR phone, keyed (unfortunately) to the recent death of its steward at Motorola.

I was turned onto this blog a couple months ago by Fine Young Journalist, another enjoyable blog. I agree, it's quality.
