So here we are, in a social world, wondering how to make the best of things, how to use the tools thrust upon us to best effect. The horse bolted a long time ago and there is no way of ever closing the stable door again – I think the door shattered and came off its hinges.

This is a really interesting piece Colin. Sometimes I cringe at my advocacy of certain aspects of social media, but then I think about what it is made possible. Although some argue for a ProSocialWeb, l like your point about a more personal web:

Still, one thing has changed, one hugely significant thing: I’m no longer trying to be a voice for the masses (that ship has well and truly sailed), no longer pretending that I could hold sway over any of this. Instead, I am just focusing on what’s best for me, how I can use the tools at my disposal (and that’s all they are) to have a presence I can be proud of, to work things out in my own mind.

Although I am happy to engage with the ‘social’ aspects, I have become more mindful of over-investing on what it might offer.
