Interesting reflections on the concept of the thought leader (not obviously tied to the recent debate on experts, but obviously in the same context). As I comment, "What we need are thought leaders, certainly, but we need not people who can tell us (or even show us) what to think, but rather, people who, through their practice, show us how to think." Related: Artichoke pretty much lays down the law on social networking and the Economist debate. Also related: Contact spam Economist style.
