We are all turning into DJ’s

Some one said this the other day and it struck me that this statement is a powerful metaphor for today’s environment. Of course the conversation was about iPods and who got or gave one for Christmas (just about everyone). Everyone around the table was a "Baby Boomer" and the whole iPod thing is a little foreign, so I found the observation that we are turning into DJ’s particularly insightful, even though it was meant in a literal sense.

The insight is that the power of information flow in our society is shifting away from those that deliver information to those that receive (or more accurately "seek") information.

More to say here, just no time. So until later…
