Harold Jarche writes, "Many people are just figuring out Web 1.0, mastering their web browsers, email and the like. Others are getting into Web 2.0, using social media to connect to people and join communities of practice. And now along comes the internet of everything (IoE). How will we be able to master this new network paradigm, or will it master us?" Jarche says it's about finding balance. "We will have to get skilled at constantly lumping data and things together, then filtering and categorizing the changing landscape." I think it's a matter of understanding that when we look at information, we are seeing it from a perspective, with a limited point of view, and appreciating that - the way we appreciate a sunset, instead of complaining that we can't see the whole sky.
