Here’s just a few of the wisdom snags and snicker captures from the first SXSW panel of the day. WONK WARNING: these are raw unprocessed notes of a highly selective and unattributed nature. Just stuff that got past my crap filter.
Internet as ecosystem: increased diversity as users add flavours that site developers or message owners would not have added.
Widgets running around the internet changing things the way the internet itself changed things: Hookah which brings users together who can listend to same music and chat regardless of internet location in same way internet made physical location irrelevant.

Creating a platform people can innovate on potentially adds value you never imagined. “The Tom Sawyer effect” — hey kids, itÂ´s fun to paint this fence. IÂ´m going to stand here and eat an apple while you have all the fun.
Futurism and environmentalism converging on the issue of consequences: different from escaping to nature, both are now focussing on catastrophe scenarios.
Experience of people in the global South is not going to be via a high-end computer. ItÂ´s going to be on a low end, underpowered mobile device.
