Conversations: Local Realtime Versus Global Asynchronous - As Applied to FriendFeed

Richard Ackerman, Science Library Pad, May 04, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The twitter-like interface of FriendFeed focuses on the now, on the immediate. But this results in a frenzy of unfiltered content. Contrast this to the usefulness of the asynch mode. "In the morning, what I see is not the latest ideas, what I see is the most important ideas, based on the filtering of a community I trust." Maybe, but this depends on friends actively filtering, in Friendfeed. Some will, but in general, it's not going to happen.
