"I've got to admit that I don't like the term "social media." When I hear or read it, I tune out. My problem isn't with the word "social," but with the word "media." It's a loaded word, framed by a hundred years' experience with pre-Net "media" that reduced everything to "content" (another word I dislike) that was then "delivered" somehow. There is a a sense of distance to "media" that I believe diminishes our understanding of the Net. It's a bugaboo with me, and I'll admit to being pretty much alone with it." - Doc Searls

"The internet runs on love" - Clay Shirky

"When all you do is copy others, you copy their mistakes, too."

"When we think about participatory web, it’s not about laptops and high bandwidth… it’s about mobile phones. There are 3 billion handsets worldwide, and its estimated 80-90% of people in the developing world can access a mobile phone if they need to. This is a level of penetration of technology that changes the rules of the game. We need to broaden our thinking beyond the Web." - Ethan Zuckerman on Mobile 2.0
