When I started writing this blog in 2006, few bloggers were talking about social media, and even fewer were talking about mobile. Today, that’s all changed. Convergence is at hand, and it’s even more spectacular than many could have imagined. Everything becoming more social and mobile, and the speed at which information moves is intense.
Things are moving so quickly that the focus of many tech blogs has shifted from substance to speed. These days, there’s not much point in trying to be the first blogger to publish tech news. Information is moving so quickly that by the time tech ‘news’ hits most blogs, it’s usually already been reported to death. That’s why today, more than ever, I think the most interesting blogs do more than summarize the news, they analyze it.
