It's all about sharing
I was looking at the BBC site a few minutes ago and two stories caught my eye. The first was titled "Social networks top Google search". The second story was subtitled "Microsoft has made tools available which will allow hobbyists and students to create games for the Xbox 360."
You know, regardless of whether an article is referencing myspace, youtube (which google wisely bought), or the evil empire's (MS) latest software that will allow users to spawn home-brewed games------it's all the same thing, really.
The web thrives on participation, on interaction, and, to the chagrin of media congloemerates, on sharing. Some would argue this is the fundamental purpose of the web, not simply to create and dispatch waves of information, but, rather, to share information, and bring individuals together in various fashions (BBS, blogs, newsgroups, link lists, articles). And that would be my thought as well.
I guess it is for this reason that the internet is viewed and approached with suspicion, fear, and even sometimes oppressive hostility in certain nations. But, really, the genie is out of the bottle and there's no way to put him back in. Perhaps future historians will mark the growth of the internet as the deathknell for authoritarian regimes.
