    U think it is great that ideas are being spread, but people need to learn to discern which one worth investing in, every idea is a potential risk anyway.
    There are people who spread new ideas, and stay up to date with what is going on, and there are those who just had one idea that was appliable to something specific and work, and then they spend the rest of their life trying to extend or apply that idea to other things.
    To me seth is a member of the first kind and
    the long tail guy of the second one.

    I am stating that there is a huge amount of a ideas nowadays importance which is in part consequence of the quantity of information availability and accessibility (I notice I haven’t been clear, sorry ).

    a)keep up to date with inventions, changes, news, paradigm changes and so on.
    as a framework for their new Ideas.
    b)Try to frame actual reality (without understanding it deeply) according with the ideas they have that where important.

    Completely agree about your observation of the low importance stuff in Seth’s blog. Didn’t occurred to me before, cause I usually follow him and enjoy doing that. But he is type (a)Stays up to date with what goes on and creates based on that.
    Instead the Long tail guy (b) is trying to extrapolate the one big idea he once have to modern times, and not keeping up to date with what is going on.
    Sorry Hope Ï have been clearer this time, I notice I need to practice my skills.
    You can also check the history of technological inventions, Nicholas Carr book IT doesn’t matter is pretty interesting, and also what people saying about memetics nowadays (Invented by Dawkins, about the transmission of memes or ideas).
    Feel free to write to me and I can lead you to some other technical things. You can also check my last post about Streams in my blog.
    Best Regards
