Knowledge, Learning, Community

Inch by inch the internet is moving toward he personal learning environment (PLE) model. Or maybe I should brand it more broadly and call it the personal productivity environment (PPE) model. Protocol is calling it 'the Switzerland of x'. Trello, for examplle announced a redesign "bringing all your documents and tasks and files into one organizational tool." Vimeo' Anjali Sud wants the company to be "the Switzerland for the creators." But there's a risk: when the rebundlers become the resellers, and start topping up their profits with paywalls, advertising and surveillance.
